The 5.10 Guide tennie is a hard approach shoe to beat!
This shoe has had an impact on the climbing community like no other. If you have ever walked around a climbing camp anywhere in the world, I’m sure you have seen these shoes on someones feet.
Sporting an awesome leather construction and 5.10 stealth rubber sole, they will keep you going for miles and miles. They excel on all day climbing missions and long approaches, as well as just cruising around town.
I have had my guide tennies now for over 2 years and they are still going. I wear them almost every day! I do everything from working as a professional climbing guide, crag hoping, hiking, mountain biking or hanging around in them. With their heavy duty construction these shoes are sweet for 4th class scrambles and even lower 5 class climbing. The stealth rubber sole and somewhat stiff platform also make them fairly decent at edging. Somewhere they do shine is with any crack climbing needs. They hold very well in foot jams and are super comfy. The only disadvantage to these shoes are their weight.
Weighing 13.2 oz each, they are not the most compact or light approach shoe on the market. But with all their other amazing features and performance abilities, I believe you will love them even despite their extra weight.
If you are looking for a great all around approach shoe that has shown a history of performance and relatability, then check out the 5.10 guide tennnie. You won’t be disappointed!
