The Five Ten Womens Blackwing has been rebooted. Gone is the black and red 'jellybean' upper, to be replaced by a more familiar Five Ten Cowdura finish (in a stylish pink!), as seen across the mainstream Five Ten range.

The basic premiss and fit of this specialist downturned womens climbing shoe remain in place, however post makeover the Blackwing seems to have taken on a slightly heftier more rugged construction. Five Ten claim this is a Velcro version of that design classic, the Dragon, however we would argue it is more a cross between the Five Ten Team and the now discontinued JET7. As downturned shoes go this beast is certainly a contender; offering a robust, low stretch, lined construction, duel Velcro straps and it's good to see the return of more substantial pull-loops, which have been sadly lacking on a number of other recent additions to the range. As with the Dragon, the Blackwing comes armed with Stealth HF rubber across the sole and rand, renowned for its high levels of friction and decent durability.

Despite the growth in toe-down climbing shoes from across the brands, Five Ten's ability to design and build shoes with incredible levels of curved asymmetry, resulting in amazing steep terrain specific shoes remains unparalleled, and the Blackwing certainly upholds this tradition to the highest standards.

Sizing: as is often the case, the sizing on this shoe does not sit inline with other Five Ten shoes of a similar ilk. We reckon it's pretty small fitting and you will probably need to up size by at least half a size from what you take in the Dragon and certainly a full size from anything from within the Anasazi range.

Similar in fit to the

Similar in fit to the Dragons but slightly more support. Good sensitivity. Still a bit of dead heel space despite tight sizing. Won't suit broader feet as much. Street shoes size is 5 and went for same size - couldn't go any smaller. Trying to find 'kinder - non leather' alternatives to my beloved La Sportiva Solutions and the Blackwings seem to be the best so far.
