Great shoe, works as advertised, and I do recommend. I do have to say that that I was concerned reading about the poor quality that some others have written, but I think it's important to note that Five Ten must be on a second revision of this shoe because the quality issue has been solved. I use them for downhill mountain biking and have no complaints at all. This second revision holds up very well. The original version had a bald, or flat spot in the sole, which I believe had the quality issue.

Good overall shoe. Arch support is very minimal. I had to add a SuperFeet to help with this. Good looking, light, and the best rubber there is.

I like these shoes! Of course, footwear fit is personal. And my use for the Aescents are related to the climbing approach for which I take it they're designed. My interest and use for these is for bike riding using "platform pedals," pedals with pins to help keep feet planted but not special clips (pedals and shoes) that lock footwear the feet to pedals. My criteria were: - lightweight - lots of mesh for summer breathability - light color (who wants black footwear outdoors in summer heat?) I have a trouble spot on one foot that makes finding comfortable footwear challenging. For whatever reason the Aescents felt great from the first try and have only gotten better in the month I've worn them. What makes them great, additionally, is: - very grippy sole (their main thing, I surmise, for good climbing approach shoes) - a sole that's significantly stiffer in performance than runners yet doesn't feel that way when walking about and this is the reason to use them for biking, where stiff soles contribute significantly to more efficient pedaling, providing more leverage to push pedals and also to help maintain foot health. I'm truly amazed by the instant and sustained rise in my biking performance: faster, further, and using higher gears routinely on slopes that formerly had me in the granny gear.

I found the Five Ten Sleuth to be a very comfortable shoe, just right for a get-together at a family cookout, one of my relatives noticed them right away, and was quick to comment how much she liked them.

I am an avid downhill rider. I have always liked five 10 shoes, how they hold up and how well the shoes are made. These are the best so far. They fit exactly tell way they say. If you are a size 12 then that is what you order. Of all Freeride and Downhill shoes go these are my favorite by far. The grip to flat pedal could not get better. When you preload for a jump and lift your legs your bike stays attached to you feet. These shoes are dialed. I hope this helps!

The edging power on these is phenomenal, the rubber is stickier than any other climbing shoe I've owned. These don't really stretch at all, so be careful about sizing. I'm a 10.5 street shoe but an 11 in these with a pretty aggressive/"technical" fit. I just take them off between routes.

This shoe sticks to my spank pedals very well. I have had no issues with losing grip or sliding around the surface of the pedal even in rainy downhill conditions. Off the bike, walking can be hard on your feet because there is little to no arch support. Buy Dr. Scholls, there is plenty of room for them!

These shoes are perfect for mountain biking! I've been waiting for Five Ten to release a women's version or this shoe, and they perform great. They stick to pedals and just feel awesome while riding. Made me feel really stable and secure on rough, technical terrain. My only is advice is to order them HERE from Zappos! I made the mistake of ordering them directly from Five Ten and their customer service is absolutely AWFUL. Their website claims free two day shipping and that all orders will ship same day if ordered before 10:00am Pacific time. Well, they didn't ship same day, in fact they failed to ship them at all! They created a shipping label and sent me a tracking number the day AFTER I ordered them, they didn't respond to customer service emails, and after waiting several days I got ahold of them on the phone and they said "oh, your order never made it onto the truck, we will get it out soon". So, what should have taken 2 days took well over a week. Just another reason that I appreciate Zappos' EXCELLENT customer service and reliable shipping! Great shoes, highly recommend But be sure to order here!

These shoes perform extremely well for mountain biking, clinging to platform pedals like a needy baby. When it comes time to hike-a-bike over some sketchy exposed cliff edge, the climbing rubber soles will not leave you skittering around like traditional clipless shoes. These shoes are also extremely durable and just will not seem to wear out. However, they are not perfect. These shoes are far bigger and clunkier than would seem to be necessary - call it "skate-style" I guess, though style is not the first word that leaps to mind when viewing these fugly things. The laces are tedious and unreliable, and there is no pull tab, so getting the shoes on without crushing and folding the interior of the heel is a bit of a nightmare - you really need a shoe-horn, and who has those anymore?

Excellent footwear. Comfort is exceptional. Squeaks on hard flooring when the sole is clean, so you can't sneak up on the dog.

They fit my AA feet so well and the HF rubber is wonderfully sticky. Shoe is slipper soft. I have used sportiva and mainly scarpa shoes for years, but I keep coming back to these. Sandstone, granite, limestone.

These shoes fit my feet perfectly...and by perfectly I mean they were the exact size and shape of my foot (so I guess not perfect as I had zero room in them). I loved the look and the feel and if Five Ten made them in 14s I would be wearing them right now, but no, the big footed are not allowed to have nice things.

Okay: I could actually sleep in these shoes. From the first day I wore them, they felt perfect. I wore them on about a four mile hike, and never took them off until it was time for bed - and realized I never once thought about my feet! I have arthritis in left foot, and wearing the Five Ten Camp Four lets me forget about it completely. These shoes have wonderful stability (so yes, they're probably a tad stiffer than most, but in all the right places). Hiking on slippery rocks is almost a treat, as the treads become "sticky" in the dampness, assuring solid footing. Immediately ordered a second pair, and then got some for my husband, who swears by them now.

These shoes have been disappointing because after hiking over 100 miles on several outings they have stretched so much it's becoming difficult to keep them tight. I inserted "Superfeet" insoles, adding a cost to the already high cost of the shoes and had to add another foam insole under that to take up the increased volume in the shoe. Overall: the shoes look good, the sole has good grip, but I would never buy another pair, probably at any price.

This is my first pair of climbing shoes and I could not be happier. These fit similar to the Evolv Elektra but are not synthetic so they will stretch and mold to your feet. I bought half a size down from my street shoes, anticipating that they would stretch. They were uncomfortably small at first, but have broken in really well and now fit great.

First of all.... Five ten shoes make what is called a "true fit". that means you measure your foot from heal to toe and order that number.... I used to where etnies, vans, and other various types of those shoes... and because of the fluff in them I'd always get a full size or half size bigger.... I didn't have a local shop that sold them so I ordered online and got 10's (bigger then my foot) instead of 9 1/2 because I thought, "oh sure, true fit's, whatever" and surprise.... I had to send 'em back and get 9 1/2's, the actual size of my foot. Order the actual size of your foot. not what you wear in other shoe sizes, ok? also, I have read a few reviews the say the shoes are wide.... well, they are wider if you have a narrow foot!!!!!! again... when you figure out the size of your foot, pay attention to the width.... these are truly a Medium width. and my right foot is 9 1/2, D wide (or medium width). Fun fact for those who don't think about it... your dominant side of your body is always almost just a slightest degree larger so you always want to fit to the dominant side, in this case my right even though I measured both feet to make sure, and guess what? these fit perfectly!!! better then any shoe I have ever owned. if you have high arches these don't have high arches you may need arch support fit into them. I have relatively flat right foot (broke an ankle and apparently the doctor casted too tight, reshaped my foot a little.... derp....) and my left foot has got some arch but not a high arch. these shoes work really fine for both feet and I can walk on them for a day at the park and feel comfortable all day... You should know, that these Five Ten's and the "impacts" model, which are even stiffer, are relatively stiff compared to other shoes when you first get them... (i mean, they are made that way on purpose because they are a purpose built shoe for riding Freeride and Downhill bicycles and they are made to connect to the pedal and then add support to the foot as your whole foot doesn't sit on the pedal, so keep that in mind) after a week or two of riding or like 3 or 4 week of light walking around they soften up some and feel really natural to slip into and and run around in riding or walking. These are fairly rugged shoes.... they really can take a beating. I have several pairs that i decided to use for summer construction because they were comfortable and tough and i didn't feel like buying more boots before classes started for 3 months of work. I've had a pair that i decided to buy specifically for walking' around in and have had them for three years with just a little riding on them. again, these shoes are made to be survivable so the price is good since you can get long use out of them. I only buy new pairs cause the old ones get turned into work shoes and playing' in the dirt shoes and keep the new ones for looking' nice when in the city. You will not want these shoes for any gym floor use.... Five Ten created mostly climbing shoes at first as a company and there "stealth Rubber" is what is used in climbing shoes originally, because of this soft rubber you have some of the most amazing grip on rocks and such... that same rubber is used in their bicycling shoes. part of it's grip come from that rubber and how it's made. it's very soft so it will rub of on gem floors with the littlest of effort expended. Great for sticking to pedals for this reason. ok.... there you have it. Five ten is a comfortable, high quality, purpose built shoe. It's a "true fit" brand. I love 'em. haven't owned anything different for years. But they are appropriate for my feet more then anything and I like the heavier, tough, rugged feeling they have.

Got these shoes to use as approach shoes for climbing. Love them! Perfectly stiff and they look great. Rubber soles stick to everything, I use these to warm up on easy climbs. Also great for mountain biking. Very happy with this sturdy shoe!

Great shoes for extreme hiking! I hike with groups that do significant scrambling with some exposure; these shoes are comfortable, breathable, and the soles really grab the rocks and reduce slipping.

These are outstanding shoes. There is nice room in the toe box and plenty of support. The flat sole works great on all terrain. Buy them - you cannot go wrong.

These fit great after sizing down a good bit from street size; I went with a 9.5 and I wear a 10.5 approach and 11 running or street shoe. They are quite snug but not painful and will probably stretch out a good bit if what I've read is true, but they edge well now and just feel solid on small holds and sticky on friction all with out a painful fit. There are diminishing returns from too tight a shoe to the point where micro holds are impossible and all you can think about is getting them off. I did that with a pair of cobras a number of years back and won't make that mistake again. You really have to try a few different kinds and sizes before you get a feel for what is possible and what you have to live with and these were the answer for me. Nice to try em on at home and really give it some thought too, sales people in a store aren't going to have to wear them all day or shake out on some tiny face holds w/o rolling off em. Thanks Zappos for making it easier to fit these right.

These shoes are torture to put on let alone stand up in. I ordered a size bigger and they were so painfully tight and the arch was unnatural. I am returning these tomorrow.
