The Five Ten Guide Tennie is a legendary approach shoe which has long been the cragging footwear of choice for climbers the world over. This is the women's specific version which has a slightly lower volume fit than the men's, and a classy charcoal and iris colourway. It has now had a major re-design for Spring 2014, with some excellent changes:

The most obvious change is to the sole, which is now a specially moulded affair with a much deeper and more widely spaced tread than the old versions. This should be a significant improvement for typical British use, which tends to involve wet grass and mud on crag approaches, rather than arid terrain of California for which the previous version was designed. Climbing performance has not been hampered though; a 'smedging zone' around the toe of the shoe maximises grip on small footholds.

The rubber rand has now been extended further around either side of the shoe to increase durability at what is a high wear area. A moulded plastic heel counter completes the changes and helps to stabilise the foot, particularly whilst carrying a pack.

The new Guide Tennie seems to be about half a size bigger than the previous versions. For a standard 'trainer' type fit we would recommend wearing them at half a size down from your usual shoe size. For a rock boot type fit you will probably want to down-size by 1 whole UK size (or possibly 1.5 sizes if you mainly want to climb in them).

These were far too big!

These were far too big! I know you are trying to get me a smaller size - an update would be appreciated! It's not much fun having size 2-3 feet!
