Long break in for great comfort
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Edit: These took a long time to break-in but now they are fabulous. They climb well in vertical to slab maybe slight overhang. They are relatively stiff. The heel cup is relaxed making a good all day shoe.
These are too narrow for me. I have the older version, the Ascent, and apparently those are so broken in I forgot how narrow they used to be, or 5.10 changed the last a little. Nicely detailed shoe, a good evolution from the Ascent. I ended up with the Acopa Legend for an all day shoe. It's stiff, edges fanastic, and still have enough sensitivity to feel under the toes. The Legend is significantly wider without being the least bit sloppy.
