Five Ten V10
Use: Intense Climbing
Break-in Period: 1-2 Weeks
Weight: Around 1 lb.
Price Paid: 115$
Great shoe. Very aggressive with a good toe and perfect for every bouldering problem, except heel-hooking sometime lacks. Overall, probably the best slipper on the market in my opinion.
Only downside is that these are painful. I got them a little too small and my toes bruise every time. Make sure you get the correct shoe size and you can't go wrong.
Use: bouldering or intense routes
Break-in Period: one week
Price Paid: $119
They are like cheating, it's amazing the stuff they stay on, best bouldering shoe I have ever owned.
