These are simply great shoes. They work for almost everything (save edging on the tiniest of holds). Although they will dye your feet red the first several dozen times that you use them, there is nothing to complain about with these shoes. They slip on comfortably. These shoes are SOFT. Look elsewhere for a rigid shoe. I will certainly buy another pair when my current ones wear out. Happy climbing!
This will be my 4TH pair of Five Ten Moccasym and I love them! Great feel/fit, good indoors and comfortable outdoors. The stealth rubber is amazing and when my friends are slipping all over I'm usually stuck to the rock loving it. The only weak points of the shoe I can think of would be a strong heel hook could be problematic if you're not used to the shoe and edging is great but not excellent. Overall, this shoe is the best all around, indoor/outdoor, bouldering to sport to trad, shoe I've ever worn. Looking forward to my next pair!
I have had i pair for close to two years...yes they stretch (about a size) but that is why they are awesome...the mold to your feet and become so comfy! Just buy them a tat smaller than other shoesReally durable...they took 2 days in the gym and one day outside for a bit over two years as my go to shoe…I use them both at the gym and for trad multipitch routes...great for smearing and jamming.Bottom line I just bought my second pair of a classic shoe.
A few months ago I got my first pair of La Sportiva Miuras, and it was instant love. They are amazing for bouldering as well as shorter sport climbing (I wore them once for trad). Unfortunately, as with all relationships, they need occasional re-soleing. So I bought these babies. The mocasyms are really great for sport climbing, super comfy once they are broKen in, although it did taKe a few days until I could get them all the way onto my feet. I wear a 35.5 in climbing shoes, and got a size 4 (mens) in these. The one draw-bacK is they turn my feet bright red, and I thinK they are going to stretch out a bit. But for now, I'm loving them!
This is the second shoe I have owned, the first being Evolvs. This is definitely a trade-up. I first bought these shoes for slab climbing in Boulder CO but they perform on Texas limestone, granite, and gym settings equally well. It's not aggressive at all and the heel hooks are pretty weak, but that's really the only negative things I could even think of. This slipper smears on literally everything (I could count on both hands how many times I've blown a foot in these) and has really baller edging. They do stretch big time, so get into literally the smallest one you can squeeze into and it will (eventually) become perfect. I wear street size 8.5-9 and got a 7.5. Literally perfect sizing. Just buy this shoe and you won't regret it. BTW c4 stealth rubber is seriously the best thing for climbing since rope :)
The Moccasyms are an all around great shoe. I've had them for over a year now and I'm still overusing them. The C4 Stealth soles make for a great smearing, edging and durability which is unmatched. The shoes do stretch and form fit after decent use but I wouldn't recommend going down more than a size and a half as you will be hurting for months. I think the heel could be more aggressive and the edging wears down more quickly than I would have liked. My feet are red from the dye leeching after I take them off but it's cosmetic at best. Overall, I would highly recommend them.
I have a very low volume foot so I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the sizing right. I had to size down around 2 sizes, standard for rock climbing. My toes were curled over and I was worried, but after several painful climbs, they broke in beautifully. They arn't hard to slip on and off, which I love. Excellent quality. They stretch A LOT so don't be shy about the fit, go as small as you can.
The edging is great for the first few weeks. Once the shoe stretches and forms to your foot it is the best all day crack and multi-pitch shoe. I love when I get to a plush belay and can just slip my heel out but keep my feet in the shoe. Definitely worth buying a pair and seeing if you like them. Even if they don't work best for your feet there is always a place for them in your climbing pack.
I love these shoes, and I probably don't even have the best shaped foot for them. They're incredibly sensitive, and if you downsize 2 street shoes (like I did), you'll have an incredible bouldering shoe that does everything well except heel hook. They're also very reassuring on trad routes because you can feel every little hold (downsize a bit less, mine kill at belay ledges).My feet are narrow at the back, and wide & flat at the front. The toes on the Moccasyms are very pointed, and so the rand's coming off by my pinky toes (plus it hurts). La Sportiva Cobra may have been a better option in my case, but hey, they're still great and I'm hanging on to them.
