Five Ten Team VXI
The Five Ten Team VXi is the only climbing shoe to feature Stealth® Mi6™ rubber, Five Ten's softest compound that was literally designed for glassy holds. With no midsole and only 3.5 mm of outsole, the Team VXi is incredibly sensitive and will outperform all other shoes on overhanging polished and glassy rock consisting of tiny crystals and smears, thanks to the Mi6™ rubber that surpasses all other rubbers' ability to adhere and grip onto holds with minimum effort. At only 10 ounces per pair, the Team VXi’s are the lightest climbing shoes in existence. Not for long routes or those looking for comfort but perfect for "roof" style boulders or mega steep sport routes.
For maximum comfort in this aggressive shoe, the Team VXi use a synthetic vegan-friendly leather that will stretch up to a full size. Expect a painful break-in period, but also expect unparalleled performance.

An extremely soft rubber compound that excels on smooth surfaces such as polished limestone faces - or glass, like in the Mission Impossible movie this compound was designed for. While we can't recommend you start scaling skyscrapers with the Mi6™ rubber, we highly recommend trying it on overhanging and steep routes, where it requires less downward force (i.e., effort from you) to achieve friction. Mission accepted.
