Your climbing gear might stay indoors on rainy days, but the Five Ten Men's Guide Tennie Mid GTX Approach Shoe doesn't. Gore Tex gives this mid top hiking shoe reliable waterproof breathable protection, so you can scout out new projects in wet weather. An ErgoNomic last uses an athletic, form fitting heel for comfort and technical performance on sketchy approaches. Five Ten built the Guide Tennie out of a sleek nubuck leather, with textile reinforcements to ensure long lasting quality. The midsole provides a firm cush to keep the support high when the approaches turn nearly vertical. Stealth C4 rubber has the friction you need to get past the slabby sections that seem to encompass every approach in Little Cottonwood Canyon.
