|I bought this shoe instead of getting another pair of the Dragons, just to try something different. |
The shoe fits differently from other agressive 5.10 shoes such as the Dragon or V10, the Team 5.10 fits narrower (perhaps because it is a slipper), the heal is tighter with little/no dead space and the toe is very, very precise.
Though i didn't find these as aggressive as the Dragons I can say i fell in love with them the more i used them. The pointy toe was awesome at hitting those tiny foot holds and being a slipper it has some flex to it making toe hooking even more second nature.
I also own the V10's and I much prefer these to the V10's. The toe is just so much better on these and these feel more precise and sensative than the V10's. Though to be fair my V10's are sized looser to be used as a training shoe, not a sender.
The Rubber is also more durable on these than the Stealth HF found on the other 5.10 bouldering/steep sport shoes, which is a nice plus, though minutely not as sticky. But good footwork is more important.
Street Shoe size 12.5 Team shoe size 12 = Perfect

|The Five ten teamster is a great bouldering shoe. I bought this shoe for it's aggressive toe and slipper fit. The toe and heal are both extremely well fitting with little deadspace in the heal unlike other five tens in the past. The mystique rubber is very sticky and also quite thin so the shoe is extremely flexible and quite sensitive which is ideal for short boulder routes. It took a week of solid climbing to really break into these shoes. The fit is extremely tight. I had to go up a half size from my regular shoe size and a full size from my usual climbing shoe size.|
|Difficult to fit because it is extremely tight when new. The shoe does conform over time to your foot (or vice versa) and is amazing after this happens. The top strap is there to tighten around your midfoot to prevent your feet from turning in the shoe but I rarely feel that it is necessary. I'm on my second pair of these shoes and am extremely happy with them for bouldering and sport climbing.|
