The benchmark high-performance shoe
The Velcro is hands down the best performing rock shoe on the market today. If you're looking for comfort, this is not the shoe for you. If you're looking for maximum sensitivity and power transfer, you found it. My biggest complaint is these things last about as long as a condom at a safe sex convention...uhh...you get the idea. If Five Ten could make a shoe that performed this well and didn't fall apart after 3 months, there'd be no reason to buy anything else.
