Sole Rubbers 

Five Ten Stealth rubber

  • Onyxx - Best all-rounder with precision edging and exceptional durability.
  • C4 - Great for edging.
  • HF - High friction, softer compound ideal for advance climbers on steep climbs. 

Mad Rock 

  • Science Friction 3 - A great all-rounder with high friction and exceptional durability.


  • XS Grip - Good friction to hardness ratio.
  • XS Edge - Stiffer than Grip and more suited to edging.

Pro Grind:

This is something special Big John has been doing to shoes since the nineties. It is similar to the Mad Rock dual density sole unit (DDS) in which the rubber is thinner under the ball of the foot to give greater flexibility and an ability to grab holds with your toes more. The shaping we do is different than the Mad Rock patented sole unit but the concept is similar. We recommend this for climbers with strong feet wanting more sensitivity and it works best in shoes that are not painfully tight used for steep climbing. Don't confuse this modification with the down turn high performance shoes have this has nothing to do with rubber thickness. See frequently asked questions for more advice on this.


No Printer, No problems! For Quick processing we suggest sending a copy of your receipt with order, but if unavailable, simply just your order number written on the outside, or on a peice of paper in the bag will help!
