I use this shoe for low-grade climbing (class 4 - low class 5) where a full hiking boot is either suboptimal or dangerous. They're light, super sticky and were wonderful on everything I threw at them with the exception of a long gravelly slope (pebbles get inside low-tops). The wrap-around solid, sticky rubber toe piece is key. I highly recommend these to anyone who doesn't truly need a climbing shoe (slipper) for the ascent at hand. Climbing shoes have their place, but they really aren't pleasant to wear. In contrast, I could wear an approach shoe like this every day (but I don't so as to save them for terrain where I really need them to work their magic).

Bought these for my husband. He lives them. He is very picky about his shoes because he is on his feet all day as a land surveyor. He swears one of his feet is bigger than the other so he always has one shoe that is uncomfortable but I haven't heard any complaints from him.

I love these shoes! I am now considering buying a 2nd pair. I wear them for teaching photography workshops in Hawaii along the rocky coastlines and for short hikes through jungle to waterfalls. They are comfy and sized properly for my size 11. I also like that they are "vegan" shoes!

5.10 makes the best mountaineering footwear available. For approach boots, the 2 versions of the Guide Tennie (leather and canvas) and their big brother the Camp Four are unparalleled. I've been on numerous adventures in multiple pairs of Guide Tennies and Camp Fours and highly recommend their performance and durability.

I love these. They feel a little bit like a hiking boot in that they are a little stiffer/sturdier than typical shoes but they are really comfortable and feel really well built. Definitely 100% vegan for those who are curious.

This is a great shoe. I've used it for gym climbing, single rope ascending, bouldering and hiking through the jungle in Mexico. The upside and downside of this shoe is there is no cushion in the sole and the heel is narrow. The design of the shoe allows me to feel truly connected to the ground and that it is a very stable platform. It just isn't that great for walking. It also has a tendency to allow my ankles to roll when walking on uneven surfaces.

My go to shoes for scrambling around Southern NV/CA when I don't need extra arch or ankle support (when I'm not wearing a backpack). The 5-10 rubber is insanely sticky, which is what approach shoes are for. Be warned: wearing these indoors will ALWAYS leave black scuff marks on floors and light carpeting, so don't wear them in the houses of your parents/friends/self.

These are the newish canvas version of the traditional guide tennies. To sum it up, nice look, very little arch support, thin soles, bomber C4 rubber, insoles flattened out quickly (especially if you use them as hiking shoes, they'll flatten out in a week). As with all my five ten shoes, I almost immediately put some superfeet insoles in them. I do think with superfeet in five ten shoes they are the ultimately shoe for a guide. I know some people use these as parkour shoes but I would recommend sticking with their parkour line. I also own the nubuck version of these and originally I thought they were the same with just a different upper, they are not. These have a slightly softer midsole, and the shoe is just a bit wider than their leather counterpart. For outdoor use I still prefer the leather ones, but these are stylish and more comfortable, making it my go to shoe for short approaches with a not so heavy pack on. They are also made in the USA, which is awesome. I also own the a few pairs of the savants, insights, camp fours, and chase. The best place for these shoes is probably Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.

I bought these shoes for work. I manage a warehouse so I'm on my feet most of the day. These shoes are little rock magnets you can feel and hear them when you walk on surfaces. They have no arch support so insoles are a must. But they are made in the USA, Buy American!

Let me begin by saying Zappos customer service is awesome and makes for a great shopping experience in the event that you should hit a snag with your purchase. I am 100% satisfied with the personability and helpful assistance I received with my recent purchase of the 5.10 guide tennie. Now for the shoe. After deliberating a great deal and reading many reviews, I settled on the guide tennie to meet the needs in mind. I climb quite a bit in the Austin area and hill country of Texas, and often times I have novice climbers with me. To minimize set-up and maximize climbing time, I wanted a shoe that could handle a strenuous approach and then support me on a lead up a 5.7 or 5.8 to set top ropes for other climbers. The guide tennie seemed to be an answer to prayer. Right out of the box they were comfortable. They snugged down with the lacing system wonderfully for strenuous, steep approaches. Though they have the profile of a climbing shoe, the rigity of the sole gave me ample support for the approaches, and I never really felt threatened with turning an ankle. I wore the shoes out two days the day after I received them, hiked Enchanted Rock, and led three different 5.7/5.8 sport climbs. Sounds like a great shoe right? So why only 2 stars on overall rating. At the end of day 2, I'm loosening the laces after cleaning a climb and I noticed the rubber of the sole has separated at the seam of the toe. It wouldn't have taken but one more hike for the sole to be pulled completely off. Again this was day two out of the box. I am going to say that this is probably just a manufacturing malfunction, a 'lemon.' Other reviews indicate that these shoes are awesome. I agree in most cases except for where it mattered most, quality. Again, I'm not bashing 5.10; I'm sure this was just a slip up on quality control. Like I said, I'm working out a return and will probably try out the scarpa zen to satisfy my needs.
