I got these approach shoes as a present. They work well for climbing in a rock gym during work shifts. I have taken them outside on a trail yet but they appear to be very durable. My only concern is the fit. I know that five ten footwear runs a bit small so I got the size 8 (I'm a size 6 1/2 in street shoes) and they are a bit too big for my feet. I need to double up on socks on when I wear them.
