Spadout.com reviews Five Ten's popular approach shoe: "The Guide Tennie ($99) is one of the most popular approach shoes on the market. It’s durable enough for rough approaches, yet it climbs remarkably well. This shoe is a favorite among Yosemite Valley locals. I’m willing to bet the Guide Tennie has climbed El Capitan more than any other approach shoe."
Five Ten Guide Tennie—the best of the best
"Full, reinforced leather uppers, compression molded EVA midsoles, and a new, internal rocker offer comfortable walking support. Stealth C4 dotted rubber soles are super sticky, and thin enough for high sensitivity on slabs and edges. The high toe rand jams cracks with aplomb and the ankle-to-toe laces offer a fine-tuned fit for climbing. This is a perfect shoe for medium-length approaches, moderate climbing, and big walls routes with some easy free climbing. The Guide Tennie now comes in a narrow-lasted women’s version."
