Charles Cole was climbing solo when he encountered a particularly harrowing
mishap on his descent. By the time he had made his way to safety, Cole had already
formed the plan to start Five Ten. His experiences made him realize the importance
of having a high-performance hunk of footwear for climbing that is truly dedicated
to traction. Now, nearly 30 years later, Five Ten is thriving out of Redlands,
California as an absolute authority within the industry. The name Five Ten is
derived from the decimal system used to technically rate the difficulty of climbing
Since Five Ten has a rich history engrained on rock faces and crags, it makes
perfect sense that they would be poised on top of a pile of accolades for their
impressive climbing shoes. Leading the charge are the Five Ten Anasazi Arrowhead
shoes. A casual down-turn in the toe and heel deliver all the grip and none
of the pinch. The upper segment is crafted from supple Cowdura material for
a breathable experience like no other. High-friction Mystique rubber and an
Onyxx outsole set the standard for edging capabilities, and the entire thing
molds to your foot for more comfort than you ever thought possible from a climbing
shoe. But that is just how Five Ten does climbing shoes, and the Anasazi Arrowhead
is all the proof you’ll need.
Commitment to traction doesn’t just stop at climbing shoes with Five Ten.

amazing that sponsored climbers will secretly resole their shoes with Five Ten’s
Stealth rubber, because they know that nothing else can compare.
