Five Ten Hiangle Synthetic Climbing Shoe
The Five Ten Hiangle Synthetic's high levels of comfort come down to three factors. The low asymmetrical last keeps the foot in a more neutral position, so you can use the high downturn for longer, with minimal discomfort. The Hiangle also has a stiff midsole, making it a stronger edging shoe and giving it greater support, especially on harder sport climbs. The sole is also thicker than Five Ten's other performance shoes. That means it's firmer, with better stability and durability. This new synthetic version of the Hiangle replaces the leather upper of the original with a Synthetic Clarino material that will not stretch, so the new Hiangle won't lose its aggressive downturn after heavy use. This is a climbing shoe that's ideal for those looking for an introduction to downturned shoes, but it's also favoured by experienced climbers and pro athletes for its high levels of comfort.

Stealth® C4™ Rubber
A high-friction rubber used on the majority of Five Ten’s shoes due of its all-round performance and versatility. Five Ten first debuted this rubber on the original approach shoe, the Five Tennie, in 1985, and since then Stealth rubber has always been developed by Five Ten themselves in direct conjunction with their shoes, unlike other shoe manufacturers who outsource their rubber. The result is a rubber that works with your shoe harmoniously.

One of the best climbing shoes out there!
The Synthetic Hiangle fit is amazing. if you don't want your shoe to stretch out and loose shape then synthetic is the way to go. I have the Leather Hiangles in 41 snug fit with slight movement in heals, could of gone half a size smaller also thought it wouldn't of stretched as much as it did. Awesome shoe regardless. Now I have the synethics in 40 and couldn't be more happier.
This Hiangle fits like the blue Hiangle. It feels like a gun and you get the smallest footholds without problems. Whreas the blue Hiangle widens a bit after a few months heavy use, the synthetic versions keeps its shape.
