User Review: Five Ten Men's Insight (2008)
Price Paid: $100
When these were intact for the first few months, I considered them the best shoes I have ever had. The soft climbing rubber on the tips of the sole made me feel like Spiderman scrambling up rock. They were comfy, with ankle support and are light weight.
My biggest gripe is the fact that dirt would get into my toes incessantly. The marks were on my socks between my big and next toes. I use low gaiters to keep out the scree from the top, but the soil was getting in from the beginning of the laces. Also these shoes are not even vaguely water resistant.
I abused these these with garden work and long hikes and eventually the sides of the soles disintegrated, and they were turfed.
I would suggest trying the 5.10 Camp 4's. They look a bit less leaky.
I look forward to a solid breathable 5.10 shoe that maintains the Insight's sole, with an impenetrable waterproof upper. It would be perfect.
