The most dangerous part of any rock climb is the descent rather than the ascent. However, this descent can only be made safely with a good pair of shoes. Sneakers or tennis shoes that are more slick in their design will be poor choices for this kind of endeavor. Unfortunately, before Five Ten came around, most rubber tennis shoes were of this design. Five Ten developed their own rubber compound, called the Stealth S1, that used extra gripping surface developed from some of the top tennis shoe experts and scientists in the state of California. This makes Five Ten climbing tennis shoes one of the best choice in the market thanks to the high friction surfacing. Today, Five Ten has expanded their original compound into nine different ones, each with different abilities and features, but all excellent choices for rock climbing adventures.
