Disregard the other review.

All climbing shoes fit differently. If you haven't learned that yet, you're buying the wrong shoe.

Very sensitive. Very downturned. Very Green.

All positives.

    The Hornets are way too small for my normal 11.5 climbing shoe size. I could not even get my foot inside. It appears any maker of down turned toed climbing shoes has a different fit size. I would need to go 1.5 to 2x larger to fit properly. I bought the 5 10 Quantums from another website in 1.5x larger and they fit great. The Quantums are almost identical to the Hornets; down turned toe design. What is worse is this website hosed me another shipping charge to return instead of realizing that these shoes run very small from the manufacturer and it was not my mistake. Not accommodating at all. Real great that this website doesn't even know the products they sell. Lost me as a customer.

    I don't know what planet these come from, but the 11.5 I ordered would fit perfectly if I cut off all of my toes

    I found these shoes to nail it. I can stick to any little thing with them. Gives a lot of confidence in the climb. Would recommend for challenging climbs but not so much indoor practice as the rubber wore pretty quick (but I used them ALOT). Awesome shoe.

    Any shoes that has to taken off between pitches is poorly made for outdoor use. These shoes are designed to inflict maximal pain with minimal rubber protection from the elements. If you step on a pebble, you will feel it. If this is what you want go for it but if you want to climb without the hassle of taking shoes off between pitches, get something else.

    About sizing My street is a 10.5/11, I have long toes and my left foot is a 1/2 size larger than my Right. The 10.5 was really tight, the 11 seemed tight but doable. The heel is crazy narrow and will need to be stretched out by stuffing it with something. I used a tennis ball. Once I got the shoe to fit my heel I started climbing in it at the local gym. They are tight but are breaking in nicely. they are slowly turning into tough rubber coated socks. Great for Bouldering. I don't suggest even trying to use them as a Trad shoe, they have 0 support and are very thin, not a smearing shoe, nor a crisp edging shoe. but for overhangs and roofs they rule. The break-in is painful but worth it if you need highly sensitive climbing shoe, they are awesome.

About Five Ten

Five Ten is a family-owned company dedicated to producing superior climbing shoes, approach shoes and outdoor footwear. Founded by veteran rock climber Charles Cole in 1985, Five Ten has been reinventing the climbing shoe since day one. Starting by creating an all-new, high-friction rubber compound for shoe soles that he would later dub "Stealth," Cole set out to enhance gripping power and make rock climbing safer in the process. Today, Five Ten climbing shoes like the Anasazi slipper and Prima shoe are worn by some of the world’s best rock climbers. In fact, even endorsed climbers who are paid to wear shoes by other companies resole with Five Ten's Stealth climbing soles. When it comes to performance on the rock face, few other companies hold a candle to Five Ten shoes.
