Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Footwear This is very good, techy, approach footwear, with sticky rubber and an almost boot-like feel in a stylish shoe. The deep lace makes it feel like a climbing shoe on 4th and 5th granite while its chic, simple appearance can double as a daily driver. You may need to add an insole, but otherwise it's super siiick right out of the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first approach shoe - Love them! I bought these a few weeks ago now, and have used them one two fairly intense hikes. I'm part of the 52 peak club here in the Vegas area. We hike/climb fairly aggressive peaks. My first experience with these shoes was a gain of 2500+ ft and roughly six hours on the mountain. The shoes helped me scramble up the front side much better than my hiking shoes. Coming down, any shoe would have worked. As for sizing, I wear a men's size 11 in regular shoes. So I read about reviews ordering a size up and/or down, so I went with the equivalent to my gym show a size 11. At first, right out the box they were tight. I walked around the house a bit and foot seemed to fit the shoe well. My first trip on the rocks they felt great. My 4 rating is rough start I got, could just be me or could be the shoe. Overall, I'd recommend them! Pricey but so far, worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toe box runs narrow Pros: Light, nice urban look and feel. Cons: The Approach Pro is not the same shape as the Guide Tennie, the toe box is narrower. Folks with average to wider feet will want to order a half size up. What fits perfect in the Guide Tennie, feels pretty squeezed width wise in the toe box. Wish they had stayed with the same foot print, pun intended, as the Guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far my favorite approach shoe on the market Background: As a former gym employee and routesetter I am slightly embarrassed to admit the number of approach shoes that I've purchased over the years. La Sportiva Boulder X, Five Ten Guide Tennie / Aescent / Freerider / Warhawk, plus probably 3-4 pairs of Evolv Cruzers... the list goes on. Obviously 'Approach shoe' is a weird category to begin with... almost all of the actual (1 hour+) approaches that I've done have been completed in my La Sportiva Wildcat trail runners since I'm usually much more concerned about slipping on scree / gravel (and of course, not getting blisters) than I am about being able to edge precisely. While the lack of sticky rubber isn't ideal, my Wildcats are plenty tacky and I've always figured that I can throw on my actual climbing shoes if I run into a death slab. After years of trying to figure out what role an approach shoe should fit, I figure that all I really want out of an approach shoe is something that can pack up to nothing and is soft enough to prevent blisters while still being able to edge/smear somewhat decently. For the aforementioned reasons, I never actually use any of my approach shoes outdoors with the sole exception of my Evolv Cruzers, which I use fairly often for multi-pitch when I don't want to stash anything or leave stuff behind. While the Cruzers aren't fantastic climbing shoes I've still found myself climbing entire multi-pitches up to 5.10 in them - I've always loved how light they are but have lamented the fact that they were just too soft to do anything but smear. All of the other shoes are either too stiff to hike in (blisters) or too soft to climb in (can't edge). People seem to love the Guide Tennies, but in my eyes they've always felt too stiff to hike well and too clunky to climb well - a true master of none. The Cruzers seem to strike an acceptable balance between the two - they're too soft to edge in but the softness allows me to size them tighter without getting blisters, which gives me better overall rock performance than a clunkier but stiff shoe would on most easy, slabby climbs. I'm definitely not going to go out and hike 10+ miles in them, but like most climbers I have pretty strong feet and have hiked 4-5 miles in them without getting any blisters or feeling the need for more support. However the Cruzers have another major downside - I've never had a pair go more than a few months without a major rip, usually right on the outside edge of my foot. The canvas is just too thin and fragile - they're like a pair of Toms with sticky rubber. So I've been keeping an eye out for a pair of approach shoes that are still light / collapsible while having a little bit of reinforcement to keep the rips at bay and hopefully tighten up the edging a tad. Enter the Approach Pro. Initial Observations: While the Approach Pros are not as light as the Cruzers (15.4 oz vs. 19.5 oz for a pair of size 9's), they seem significantly more durable and edge much better than the Cruzers. I've only owned my Approach Pros for a few months but I have been wearing them 5 days a week (plus 2x/week to the gym for the past couple of months... since I messed up my back and can't bend over to lace up my normal climbing shoes!). While I can't "edge" per se in my Cruzers (it's more like 'smedging'), my Approach Pros will actually edge on small-ish (1/4 pad) footchips, which is something that none of my other approach shoes have even come close to doing. I might just be lucky with the sizing, but they're ultra-comfortable too... they have a respectable amount of foot support and are stiff enough to edge without my toes needing to touch the front, but soft enough to walk around in all day without getting blisters. Best part is, over the past few months of near-daily wear they still look almost-new and show no major signs of deterioration. Conclusion: Once my back heals up I'm excited to throw a pack on and see how these hike, but my initial impressions have been very positive so far. They're lightweight, relatively durable, pack up small, and can actually edge somewhat decently - everything I want in an approach shoe. While these definitely don't rival the performance of a true climbing shoe, I've been edging confidently on 5.10 / 5.11 feet and can easily see myself leaving my climbing shoes behind entirely on easier multipitches or traverses with these shoes. Definitely the best on the market I've seen so far.

How did you size these compared to the older version of the Five Ten Guide Tennies?

Asked by: Brandon
Hi there Bnice, Thanks for your question! I tried on both pairs of shoes myself with thin socks (the guide tennies were from Spring 2014), and the sizing is pretty comparable between the two models. The Approach fit pretty true to size, if not a tiny bit snug. There is a little more give in the toe, so I personally would stick with the size I normally wear. The Guide Tennies felt similar, but there is less give in the toe, and the soles definitely needs some breaking in. For this reason, I would recommend sizing up a half size in the Guide Tennies. If you are planning to wear a thick sock, I might even consider sizing up a whole size. Hope this helps!
