Five Ten - right up there when it comes to climbing shoes
The story of Five Ten began - as it should with any US brand whose roots lie with climbing - in the Yosemite Valley. In the mid 1980s, a 5.10 climbing grade in free climbing meant that casual climbing routes became routes that got a bit more extreme. Charles Cole, founder of Five Ten and renowned for being the first climber on various daring slab and friction routes with great runouts, made it his business to create a climbing shoe with a specialist rubber blend. The legendary Stealth Rubber was developed shortly after! This is still used to this day with further developed formulas on the most difficult touring routes. Five Ten has consistently succeeded in raising the bar for high-end climbing shoes while regularly setting new standards for everyone else!

Five Ten Stealth - rubber shoes for every use
Highly reliable material is vital for every type of sport that Five Ten provides for, and can often be the deciding factor between success and failure. Your feet cannot lose their grip when hen climbing, bouldering, downhill riding and mountain biking! The deciding factor for a rubber blend is the combination of grip and friction! The sole of any climbing or cycling shoe must be able to take a lot to ensure its durability. At the same time, it should have the right amount of friction for every surface so it keeps a reliable grip on rock, downhill in the saddle or on a climb. Five Ten managed this by fine-tuning the different variations of Stealth Rubber and working very closely with the top athletes in each type of sport!
