Let's hear it for one of my favorite products in the game. Five Ten has been making the MoccAsym for almost twenty years, and these kicks have smeared, jammed, and edged their way up some incredible stretches of stone and have been partner to personal projects for many of us. Let's see your favorite MoccAsym photo's, either of yourself or other. And let's hear some stories about those blood red feet and blown heel hooks. I love my Mocc's!

Ha! Your red stained feet, and blown heel hook line was what I was thinking.

Love mocs, just wish they were the same price they used to be.

Never cared for them much. No good for hand drilling, smash your toes in cracks, smear well but dime like sh#t. If you smash your feet in a pair you can get a laser edge, until the edge gets worn a bit and then they're just painful.

I know a lot of people like em', but I think they tend to favor young feet.

Anything with C4 stealth rubber makes me happy. Here are a pair in the rain in Kings Canyon NP

These were new and after this climb I went to get a thumb x-ray from an old injury. After I described my thumb the nurse asked if there was anything else so I showed her my feet and said I didn't know why they were turning red. She looked so freaked out it was hilarious! As she stumbled through some fillers, "umm...well...uh...wow" and tried to stay professional I told her the truth and she replied with, "that was not funny!"

BEST climbing shoe ever! I love em!

Here is a shot at the base of nutcracker the other day... I am wearing the mocc on my good foot but my other foot was swollen so it needed the bigger mytho.

By far my most favorite shoe for anything but hand cracks and bigger!

They suck. Don't edge, don't stick in thin cracks very well. I use mine in hand cracks and wider, where I don't care if they get trashed.

Heard they were great for cracks, didn't realize they meant finger cracks - little rough on the feet if the crack opens up. Love them otherwise. Fantastic for multipitch alpine traderoutes.

It's all I wear these days, but I climb limestone more than anything. They are pretty great for that. They are also wide, which I love, and relatively cheap. I think I paid $70 for my last pair.

Stealth C4: proof that that sh#t is amazing; you can glue it onto the sloppiest chunk of red leather and still climb 5.14!!!

I loved my moccasyms, but I got a pair of the new evolv addicts this spring and have absolutely loved them, perhaps even more than my Moccs.

They're pretty much all I've climbed in for a long time.
I recently "branched out" and got som Anasazi VCSs-
I feel like I'm wearing ski boots.

I'm currently hoarding new pairs and have all my old ones, fearing the end of days when Fiveten discontinues them.

People's feet are shaped too differently for any one shoe to be that great for everyone. But it looks like these shoes are a classic for people who have the foot shape to appreciate them.

For me, anything with a longer big toe or designed with a taller toe box for curled toes, or designed to push the big toe way toward the center of the foot is a non-starter.

It looked like Russell. I need to finally make that trip.

I have a feeling that wasn't actually her shoe shot on Russell's most majestic route
