Below is our review of the 2016 model and how it compared to shoes of that year. See our Approach Shoe Review to see our current favorite picks.
The best approach shoe we tested for hiking to and from climbs is the Five Ten Camp Four. Whether on trail or scrambling over rough terrain, this shoe delivers. It's supportive if you are carrying heavy loads, but remains comfortable when you're not. However, most climbers who seek a better balance between hiking performance and climbing ability on more technical rock will be better served by one of our award winners.
