The Five Ten Quantum has been under redevelopment with the Huber brothers, the result is a shoe which provides all round performance no matter what the terrain or setting for your climbing. The C4 stealth rubber is the most versatile of Five Tens compounds so was the obvious choice for an all rounder, this is combined with a reasonably stiff midsole and a lined Clarino synthetic upper for comfort over longer periods of wear. The new last is a bit wider than usual for a downturned Five Ten shoe and it allows your foot to sit in a more natural position.

Details:

  • Stealth® C4™ rubber outsole (4.2mm)
  • Lined, synthetic Clarino upper ‐ No stretch
  • Speed lace closure system
  • Wider last
  • Ariaprene tongue
  • Stiffness ‐ Stiff

Good For:

  • Steep, overhanging routes
  • Bouldering
  • Long climbing sessions

How I choose the correct size?

All climbing shoe models fit differently. We put together our 'shoeculator' to help you find the right size in a new model, compared to your old climbing shoes or street shoes.

This sizing advice is based on two pairs of brand new shoes. Leather shoes tend to stretch more than synthetic shoes. When switching from synthetic to leather you may want to select a smaller size.

Customer questions

Q

Hey guys, I'm currently using a La Sportiva Otaki at size 40.5 (7) and the suggested size for Five Ten Quantums is 8.5 UK ... is this correct? it seems like a big change.

A

Yes, Five Ten shoes are a lot tighter than La Sportivas. It might seem crazy but it is correct!

The Quantum is stiffer and slightly less downturned than both the Dragon and the Teams.

Fantastic pair of climbing shoes, both because of their design and because they are the 1 in a million pair that actually seem to properly fit the shape of my foot. I sized the quantum half a size down from my street shoe size, and this was both a snug and a comfortable fit.

The shoes perform very well on limestone, gritstone and slate (all I have tested them on), as well as indoors.

As with any pair of climbing shoes I'd recommend trying before buying not only to check size, but also whether the shape agrees with your feet.

Sticky rubber, pretty stiff sole, and a down-turned toe (not whole shoe) make this a great all rounder, which I find suitable for everything from bouldering to multi pitch climbing

size : same as streetshoe
comfort: first impression wasnt as comfortable as i hoped but but after climbing a few routes these shoe is realy comfortable.
fit: a quite snug fit without hurting, perhaps a little space in the heel area but you want slip out of the shoe.
performance: the shoe is quite stiff and at first you dont feel the footholds but its possible to stand on micro footholds . smearing is okay.overhangclimbing is super . heelhooks/toohooks acceptable.overall a very good comfortable climbing shoe!

To add to my review.. These shoes fit tighter than the pinks and tan vcs. I sized these tight for performance, and boy do they hurt straight out of the box. The rubber and the shape of them was very painful. I was going to return them but decided to wear them around the house in thick work socks. It made my toes numb after 20 minutes but it paid off after a few days. They have given a bit and moulded to my foot for a very precise, suction cup fit. The heel is great too, probably the best 5.10 heel so far for me.

These shoes are amazing. I've owned a lot of different shoes searching for the perfect balance for my style and I think I may have found it. These shoes excel at steep technical climbing with the perfect balance of slight down turn, stiffness and sensitivity. I own the blanco's, pinks, tan vcs and these. If I'm looking up at a route on my limit then these are the shoes I'm going for. Who would have thought the Huber brothers know a thing or two about good climbing shoes?!

I shifted from La Sportiva Skawma. I'd heard about durability of 5.10 shoes' rubber and it is true. Durability is an important factor on dirty rock, although some compromise in the sensitivity. Lacing system gives a precise fit in the toe box but I felt that my heel didn't really touch the bottom of the shoe. Shoe is excellent at the small footholds whatever the terrain, vertical or slight overhang. Smearing isnt great, since the stiffness of the shoe is prominent. Heel performance is great too, heel doesn't slide easily. I find the shoe ideal for Multi-pitch routes and slightly sport climbing. I haven't tried bouldering yet, but it should perform fine unless toe hooks are needed.
One important factor in Quantums is the low sensibility, which can be a problem for a person used to soft shoes, but they are definitely awesome shoes, one might need to spend longer time getting used to them.
