Five Ten MoccAsym Climbing Shoe
The Five Ten MoccAsym (probably) isn't quite as comfortable as the moccasin it's named after, but it will be much better for rock climbing in. The Five Ten MoccAsym is an extremely soft and sensitive slipper climbing shoe, designed to be put on and taken off with ease whilst at the climbing gym and excel at smooth crack climbing and smearing. If you have strong feet that can handle a shoe with no midsole, put down those comfy moccasins and pick up a pair of MoccAsyms.
These shoes have a lot of uses. With minimal features on top of the shoe, the MoccAsym is particularly effective at slotting into cracks. Without laces or velcro, there is nothing to snag on the rock, and no need to worry about destroying laces or velcro straps whilst crack climbing. And, because the MoccAsym doesn't have a midsole, it is not only as soft as possible but as sensitive as possible too, making it ideal for both boulder gym use and any climb involving tiny holds on rock or plastic.
If you have strong feet, climb on smooth cracks, or are just looking for a gym shoe that's highly sensitive, comfortable, and easy to take on and off, consider the MoccAsym. But bear in mind that the unlined leather upper will stretch up to a full size, so size appropriately.
If you are used to the old Moccasym when it was manufactured in the US then we suggest going a whole size up for the same fit

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.

I've had several pairs of these shoes over the years, but unfortunately the drop in quality is clear now that they've been taken over by Adidas. Instead of a year or two on a pair, it's now a few months. The C4 rubber is still great, and they perform well, but only for a while. Time to find a new go-to shoe.
Since Adidas bought 5.10 the quality of these shoes have dropped drastically. The quality of the leather and the way the rubber is attached on the sides make these shoes impossible to break in.
Also the soil rubber breaks off faster. Even though these were my favorite shoes now I just hate them.
This is a very sad story what Adidas production has just did with these previously awesome shoes
Great pair, sensitive/soft and sticky, my best gym training shoe as it has been there for about 30 years in the market. Otherwise, as I see online, the quality of the material, leather, is dramatically decreased after Adidas bought 5.10. My pair got teared after a month of moderate use for indoor climbing and a hole after 8 weeks... I still give 3 stars as the shoe is great but the quality of the upper material. Hope they resolve this issue soon as possible and continue the production of the legendary climbing shoes.
The MoccAsyms are an incredibly comfortable shoe to take on multi pitch climbing. Ease to take off and put. The rubber is extraordinarily sticky on granite slabs. Highly recommend these shoes!
What's not to love? OK, so they dye your feet red throughout their whole lifespan and stretch so much you'll be crippling yourself for the first few weeks to ensure the longevity of their usefulness. Despite that, once stretched they're a brilliant shoe for a lot of things:
Smearing boot? Check.
Crack climbing shoe? Check.
Training shoe? Check.
Have to wear all day and walk down in the dark shoe? Check.
If you can't tell, I'm fair fond of the MoccAsym.
...and if you needed another reason, they're pretty good value these days compared with the plethora of shoes on offer on the current market.
