Yes, First off they run small, but I have wide feet. They are also VERY stiff/rigid. I still haven't broken them in, but I've only wore them 7 to 8 times. However the soles are SUPER sticky, but once again very stiff. Judging by the site I think they are for jumping around rocks all day. Can't give you any long term info, but first impressions. I would say they are a very rugged shoe. The fabric is nice and thick and they are very good quality.
The reason I ended up buying them. Is that I saw a show with the inventor talking about the "new" soles. He took two shoes and pressed the tips of the toes together and they just stayed there. So I would have to agree with the "grippy" part as well.
Don't mean to sound like I have stock in this company, but when you find a well run site. I like to pass it on. So here I go again....Zappo's. com. Great web store. They have several Five 10 models.
Right on. I went to Zappo's and read the reviews, 34 I think? All good, but the majority said they are a great "base climbing" shoe. Maybe that's why they are so stiff for my taste? The majority gave them 4 to 5 stars though. I also decided to break them out and wear them. Very tight in the toe and not a very cushioned shoe.
5.10 makes rock climbing shoes - hence the stiffness. These are, as someone pointed out, "base climbing" shoes. I personally wouldn't recommend them, because to me flexibility and comfort are far more important than "grippy" - afterall, I use my 5.10s when my life depends on grippy on a rock face, not on a tee pad.
I'm still waiting for a comfortable, durable and affordable shoe that will survive a full season (in SoCal that's 12 months), which also means about 200 rounds. Keen has me intrigued, but I'm waiting for their first disc golf designed shoe, the current model is a redesign of an existing shoe. Soon, I hope!
I live in NorCal. and the shoes that I'm still using after 2+ years (maybe a bit over 200 rounds) are Garmonts. Very solid shoe and comfortable as well. However, there is a breakin period with them. I've had Keens in the past and still buy there clogs and mules, but I would stay away from their shoes. NO lateral support at all. Another solid shoe is Montrail. The poison oak got to them before they wore out, but that's another story!
