Five Ten - also known as 5-10 - are a huge name in the rock climbing shoe business. Most famous for introducing Stealth Rubber in 1986, they revolutionised the climbing shoe by allowing unparallelled amounts of grip.
Not a brand to rest on their laurels, Five Ten climbing shoes have constantly evolved to provide climbers with super-sticky, precision rock shoes for all sorts of disciplines. The Five Ten Rogue and Anasazi Arrowhead are the rock shoes of choice for climbing enthusiasts all over the world.
Five Ten – a.k.a. 5:10 – began life in the American Yosemites, when a fresh-out-of-university first ascent climber slipped while descending El Cap.
At that moment, Charles Cole decided his fellow climbing enthusiasts needed something safer to tackle the rockface – something that could make the difference between life and death.
Using his university engineering expertise, he developed a new rubber compound he named Stealth, which today is renowned throughout the climbing world – and beyond – for its unparalled grip.
Self-proclaimed ‘Brand of the Brave,’ Five Ten’s precision rock shoes are now one of the top-selling climbing shoes in the world, providing elite athletes and everyday enthusiasts alike with durable, high-friction footwear which has helped introduce a whole new generation to the sport.
