DECENT FEATURES of the Five Ten Moccasym Climbing Shoe
"Perfect for cracks, strengthening feet, heel begins to slip after a few months"
My moccs are on their second sole and I have to say I am psyched on them. Street 10.5 other 5.10s 9.5 (anasazi) sportivas 40.5-41. The Moccs are the best shoe for trad up to 5.10, more so if climbing pure crack. I use them in the Lower Gorge Basalt at Smith where they are second to none. Super low toe profile, best smearing out of any shoe, and decent edging. If you have strong feet they are a 1 shoe quiver, add a miura or anasazi with these and you can do any climb in the world that doesn't require ice tools (plus you'll have something while the other resoles).LOVE EM!
"THE perfect indian creek hand crack slipper"
After spending much time at the creek and in the backyard on our crack machine, I have come to the conclusion that nothing else comes close to the ease of climbing splitters all day long. Super sticky rubber, durable, and comfortable. Warning: your feet will be red for the first several months of climbing in them, and your dog will want to chew on these colorful slippers more than anything you buy him for that purpose, but they will still probably outlast any other pair of shoes put up to that challenge. They don't heel hook whatsoever, so probably not a bouldering shoe unless you're looking for buttermilk/jtree style climbing. also not the most comfortable for long multipitch climbs.
No, you won't be able to stand on dime edges with these forever nor are they great at overhanging boulder problems. For anything else this is my go-to shoe. It eats cracks and slabs for breakfast, and most importantly you'll simply be climbing more because you won't want to take them off! And isn't that what we all want?I wear a 10 in street shoes and went with a 9.5 since they do stretch a lot. I could go with a 9 but that's besides the point with these shoes.
This is one of the most underrated shoes out there. It's a great shoe for bouldering and I've been climbing in it for a year and a half. It is a less sturdy shoe, so if you like a stiffer shoe, don't buy this one. If you like feeling "closer" to the rock, these are good shoes. The stealth rubber is super sticky, and though some complain about the heel, you shouldn't have a problem if you size it right; however, YOU MUST SIZE IT RIGHT. I wear a 9.5-10 in street shoes, and I bought an 8.5 in these shoes. They stretched to fit perfectly after a short period of discomfort. Slip-ons seem to be a niche market. But if you like slip-ons, these are good.
Some love 'em, some just can't figure out what is so great about them...My buddy feels the former. He mostly does friction and crack climbs. I am struggling with the latter, I think because I am used to more aggressive shoes. I Bought these because my Miura were out of commission and I wanted to add to my crack climbing arsenal. I keep giving these a chance, since I really WANT to like them, but I think my feet are just slightly incompatible. These shoes have a round toe area. When I look at my feet, my big toe is the one protruding out the most with the other toes pretty much following in a straight line. When I wear these shoes my big toe gets bent sideways and cramped into the other toes
a shoe that only gets better as you use it i have climbed through the rubber and then resoled these babies three times and each time its like falling in love. great for learning, bouldering, thin cracks, face climbing and anything else I missed. you can Send anything from 5.5 to 5.14 (If your Sharama) best all rounder ever
"great shoe. get this as you first shoe!"
nothing can beat this shoes rubber and because of it it smears beautifully. Also climb slab with tinie tiny edges perfectly. this shoes really out perform my friends rockwrenches even on overhangs but especially on slab. they fit like a glove and my feet feel at home when they get in these puppies.quick and easy on and off. just get these shoes already.
These are probably the best all-around climbing shoes that a person can buy.They're pretty cumfy (as much as any climbing shoe can be) and smehow they manage to stay smelling good even after months of climbing without socks. They work great for crack climbing and for just smearing up a rock. The only downside is that whenever you take them off the crazy red fabric in the shoe rubs off on your foot, which makes your foot look like a tomato. The first tim I took them off I thught I was having some weird allergic reaction. Anyway, these are great shoes for any entry-level climber, or an avid pro who's been doing it for years.
I bought these about a year ago and have been climbing a lot in them since. They are by far my favorite shoes! My street size is 10.5 and got these in a size 9.5. At first they were pretty tight. I jammed my big toe because I climbed in the so much, which put me on crutches for a few days. (This is the part where you learn from my mistake). After a while they stretched out and are now oh so comfortable! They are sensitive, so you can really feel the rock which results in improved footwork. They don't toe hook well, but heel hooks are doable. Probably not a beginner shoe. I would buy these shoes again! And yes they do turn your feet red, but come on who cares! These shoes are wicked awesome!!
I ordered them as a second pair in order to keep my Miuras off indoor plastic (which eats shoes whole). I couldn't be happier. Your foot will lay flat and they are slip ons so don't expect miracles on pockets or heel hooks but these mothers are sticky and edge very well. I wear a 11 to a 12 in street shoes and take a 10 in these so, take a size down from your smallest street shoe and you should be happy. My only complaint is the tabs on the back. Wtf was 5.10 thinking with the one on the inside? The trick to squeezing your foot in there is to put the toe on the ground and bend the shoe forward as you jam your foot in. My foot fills the whole shoe and I am psyched whenever I climb with them!
