Five Ten Exum Guide Hiking Shoe

by February 4, 2015

Introduction

These shoes have almost two years of use on them and have been a really great pair. I have used them to explore mines/caves, many hikes, canyoneering, and even some yard work every now and then. The best part of these shoes is the incredible grip. These have the same sole as Five Ten’s canyoneering shoes and the grip is by far the best I have ever had in a shoe and they stay good even as the soles wear down. They are very durable and have a huge heel guard which is very nice for wedging yourself in rocks for extra grip. These are made with water resistant leather that has held up very well but definitely doesn’t do a ton to keep out water. Shoes are maybe the most important aspect of enjoying the outdoors so the expensive route is always worth it in my opinion and these shoes have been VERY good.

Cost

$160

 

Positives

Comfortable, Incredible Grip, Heel Guard,

Negatives

One drawback to the soft grippy rubber is that it doesn't last as long as other soles. The shoes themselves will far outlast the soles but the extra grip is worth the lost life in my opinion.

The Bottom Line

These are the best overall hiking shoes I have had and can be used in a number of different environments. Both me and my wife have a pair and the extra grip always makes me feel better having her do dangerous hiking, and they instill far more confidence than other shoes.
