I canyoneer and go through all types of Canyons. I went through one dry canyon and one wet canyons. The 510 Camp Four performed well. It was true to size, and I wore a medium wool sock. No heel slippage, or hot spots. Shoe stayed comfortable through two days of canyoneering. I wouldn't recommend for wet canyons, since they are not water proof. Shoes are lightweight and sturdy and the stealth rubber gripped well on dry sandstone. As with all hiking shoes I have purchased, I find that you need to add an insole for extra arch support.

I have owned an original pair of these for several years and many canyons. The one complaint I have about mine has been fixed in the new version. The stitching at the toe box on the sides is exactly where canyons wear out shoes. I have solved the problem with climbing seam grip glue. I have to reapply every 10 canyons but it's easy. The honeycomb insole is great for keeping the sand contained, they shed water very nicely and dry out faster than other shoes. The sole grip is amazing and the comfort just fine. I wear and 8 but bought a 9 so my neo socks would fit. When not wearing the neo socks I add a second insole to take up space. Work just fine and not blisters with these shoes.

I ordered these shoes for my husband, and he loves them. He needed a light hiking/mountain biking shoe with a stiff sole. He has found these shoes to be comfortable on long hikes and excellent for biking.

I picked these up for "all mountain" riding, where I'm riding rocky obstacles that have me too frightened to ride clipped in. In other words, I'm treating these as "flat shoes", and I've not cut out the cleat-area rubber. They're stiff enough that I'm crushing my climbing times, while being comfy enough that I've actually worn them in Real Life when they happened to be the only shoe I had handy. The Stealth rubber, needless to say, locks into the pegs on my flat pedals giving me incredible confidence on fast, bumpy, and flying terrain. Again, I can't comment on how the flexibility would fare if I were using these shoes with cleats; but as flats, they perform amazingly. This is probably entirely subjective opinion, but they're the "least ugly" of 5.10's current flat shoe options. They're practically mud- and water-proof, and their low breathability means your feet won't get cold after riding through slop in the late autumn or early spring chill. I haven't used them in the sweltering summer, so can't comment how that low breathability fares in the heat. My complaints: The lacing ends too early versus 5.10's climbing-oriented shoes. Essentially you have no way of adjusting the fit of the toe box to your foot, so those with very narrow feet will find them a bit loose up front, and with the shoe only engaging the rear 2/3 of your foot. I suppose this is better than having them be tight up front, but it likely reduces pedaling efficiency just a bit. The other, real complaint I have is that the velcro straps are there only to cover your laces. Unlike on other cycling shoes, they do NOT loop through a buckle to give you a 2:1 advantage for cranking the shoe tight to your foot. You merely slap them down to cover the laces, and the laces provide all of the fit. Tying them means you've go to fight lace-on-velcro snag, but this is only a tiny annoyance.

These are great shoes for street trials. Most shoes I usually take size 9½ in these shoes I needed a 10. My feet are a little wider than average.

I bought this shoe not for it's primary purpose -- it's an approach shoe for rock climbers -- but for mountain biking because it's the lightest weight 5-10 women's shoe with the sticky stealth sole. That sole sticks to a platform pedal with spikes like glue, so it's perfect for biking. (Better, actually, than the 5-10 freestyle biking versions, which are so stiff in the sole that my feet hurt.) At the same time, it's comfortable enough for walking around. And the lavender/gray combination keeps even a clunky build (necessary for the shoe's function) from looking like you're wearing a man's shoe.

Pros- Grippy sole with a wide platform; great for when you have to dab in a rock garden and don't want to roll your ankle. My other shoes are SIDI Drakos and those things are like stilettos by comparison. SPD clip hooks up easily with pedal, yet, for the most part, does NOT bottom out on smooth surfaces (like a concrete driveway or kitchen floor). Sole is a terrific pedaling platform, stiff, but just flexible enough to walk in (after said dab in rock garden). Upper is thick and protective for the odd whack against a rock or tree; your feet are entombed in bank vault protection. I pulled the laces and threaded in Yankz elastic laces; skipped the top two holes and it makes getting in and out a breeze. The large velcro strap keeps the foot locked in with plenty of security. Cons - While all black is nice and unobtrusive, one of my riding buddies says "they look like orthopedic shoes to remedy a leg length discrepancy...” That has since morphed into me having club feet. There’s a Herman Munster vibe to them, but a lot of downhill shoes suffer the same; huge and skatey. Also, the shoe is a little heavy, but if I'm in gram-shaving-XC mode, I wear the SIDIs which are seriously light by comparison. Overall, if you're looking for an All Mountain shoe that's comfy, walkable, grippy and has clip compatibility, this is a great pick; just don't expect to win any fashion awards at the espresso bar or watering hole post ride!

Love the shoe, but the W = Medium width was too narrow. I thought W in men's shoes meant WIDE.

Excellent made shoe, Really heavy though, like a pound per shoe. The sole really grips my bike pedal, I have to pull my foot off the pedal to move it to a different spot. I wear a 10 1/2 these are 10 1/2 and fit good for the length but a little tight every where else. You can't lace these up tight it will put your feet to sleep, the leather is stiff. It will take a good bit of walking to break these shoes it, really stiff shoe.

Started out a little tight across top of foot but have broken in great. I bought them to bike in the soggy cold of tn mountains. They work great almost to sticky if that is possible. I love them so much I have ended up wearing them as my work shoe on wet days and bike in them every time.

It was time for me to "level up" with my climbing shoes. I had been using all-day-comfort shoes with practically no turndown. I wanted a more technical shoe to help me with bouldering. I tried several shoes before settling on the Anasazis. I felt that of all the more technical shoes these were the most comfortable, had a great level of stickiness and fit my feet well. I'm a woman with narrow feet and long toes but my feet are too large for most women's shoes. For men's shoes these are not too wide and the toe box fits me well. The heel has a little extra room in it but it doesn't seem to move when I heel-hook. The break-in period on these wasn't too bad. I tried three different sizes and went with a size 10 (I normally wear a street size of 11-12 in women's and 10.5 in mens). I did end up with some bruises on my big toes but nothing terrible. These have made a huge difference for me with bouldering as well as sport climbing. I definitely recommend them!

I've been wearing these about 3 weeks and I love them! They are light weight feeling and very comfortable. I've mountain biked in them a few times and commuted daily and I am fast becoming a flat pedal convert. I am tempted to buy more to hoard them for later!

My second pair of Five Ten shoes for mountain biking. First pair lasted 7 years. Great for what they're intended to do - stick to pins on platform pedals. I have two knee replacements and have been reluctant to lock on to pedals since my surgery. While riding I barely notice that I'm not really cleated to the pedals. But great if I need quick removal of feet from pedals (yeah, I do take occasional spills etc).

Like most other reviews said, these run small. I normally wear an 8 and I tried an 8.5 and it was too small. I ordered a 9 somewhere else since they weren't available here and they fit better. I have narrow, low volume feet, so a 9 may be a bit roomy for me, but I'm able to tighten them up (a bit too much at first!). They're a somewhat stiff, but I'm slowly breaking them in and feel they'll give me a lot of support.

So far this has been a good training shoe - however, I have to admit that it's taken some getting used to because it is much stiffer and less sensitive than the Five Ten Dragon or Blackwing; on a positive note, it's still quite aggressive and hopefully more durable than those shoes. As far as sizing, I actually have to disagree with the earlier review - I think your street size is the way to go with this shoe. They may be tight at first, but the shoe is made of unlined leather, so it will eventually stretch almost a full size. As a women's-specific model, however, it does run narrower than many other climbing shoes I've tried - something I really like, as the heel feels super snug and secure - for heel-hook intensive boulders and routes I now prefer it to my Dragons.

SPD clip fits perfect. Walking around you can hardly tell there is a clip attached. Easy to navigate rocky terrain. It does apply some pressure on my smallest toe while riding.

I ordered my usual street shoe size. These were a full size to maybe a size and a half smaller than anything that would fit on my foot. Size up. Way up.

I bought these shoes for a climbing/base jumping trip to Switzerland and Italy. They are by far the best shoe on the market for wet/slippery rock. I had a pair of north face Shoes with vibram soles and they slipped all over the place. They do run about a half size smaller than what I normally wear. Very comfortable shoes even after hiking for hours. The 2013 model is not very waterproof. But they redesigned them in 2014 with that in mind. Great shoes!
