The Five Ten Hi angle is regarded as one of the more comfortable top-end shoes due to having less asymmetry compared to other models. This shoe is an entrance into wearing a more aggressive shoe, but it will still give you the performance needed to reach the highest of grades. The synthetic upper has marginal stretch, this makes it easier to size from the start because the internal volume will not change radically. A combination of an elastic closure with a velcro strap provides a nice balance between a slipper and velcro shoe, easy to get on and off as well as being a secure fit.
The Hiangle is now made with a split outsole making it more flexible for better performance in competition style indoor climbing and on volumes, it balances sensitivity and support with a heavily downturned last, for high-performance sport climbing and bouldering, excelling on overhanging terrain.
