User Review: Five Ten Newton
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $118
Comfortable and decent performance
- Decent price
- Solid forefoot
- Not very aggressize
Not a real aggressive shoe, but comfortable enough to make standing around not a painful experience. I like the heavier sole at the front; provides decent support when going straight in, and good for edging. The only climbing shoe I've found that doesn't torture my frostbitten toes.
The 's' lacing lets you get a real nice fit all the way down, and allows compensation for a higher arch or a wider foot. I've always liked Five Ten's rubber, and this is no exception. The smearing isn't great, but it works well enough on most surfaces.
Like the previous poster, I had to go a size large! Tried an 11, my usual street size, and had to bump up to a size 12.
