A waste of your money

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Bought these for kayaking in creek environments, where you are moving inside canyons. (needless to say, since you spend a lot of time in the boat, they actually get less use than they would in canyoneering)The rubber is incredibly sticky and provides better traction than anything else i've ever tried, but that's about the only good thing i can say about them. As for the fit, it's horrible. The straps fail to cinch down the foot properly, and instead, the toe box is very cramped (you would need to get a half size larger than you normally would, but this would worsen the support issue) But the biggest problem is durability, or the lack thereof. After about 6 months of moderate use (by canyoneering standards) they started to fall apart at every seam, to the point of rendering the boot unusable, less than a year after purchase. This is unacceptable for a $150+ shoe!
So, despite being very impressed with the sole's performance, i have to write off this product as a total waste of precious money. No recommend...

Good boot

I have gone through a few pairs of the bumble bee Canyoneers and decided to opt for the dayglow orange this time. Nothing compares to the stealth rubber soles on these boots. They preform best when wet and they are actually not to bad for all day canyon trips. By the end of the day you are stoked to get your flip flops on but these boots are great.

The only con to these boots is that they have a ceramic toe box to meet ANSI ratings and sometimes when side-hilling down slickrock ramps on an angle it can get painful as the toe box digs into your toes.

My next pair I will go back to the bumble bee yellow standard cayoneers

Amazing shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great traction, even when wet! Great fit as long as you size up properly for the sock you'll where with it. Very light, and study toe composite. Went thru some tough stuff and withstood it. Highly recommend it!

Steel Toe and super grip

This shoe is great for canyoneering or caving/mining because of the Steel Toe so you don't smash your toes with a loose rock or accidentally kick an old rusty nail. They are super grippy on rocks when you need to do some sketchy stemming or climbing. If you are going to wear them with neoprene socks be sure to size up to make room for those 2mm - 5mm neo socks.

Five Ten SAR

I bought the SARs & the Canyoneer 2 for my husband to pick from & he chose the Five Ten Canyoneer 2 because of the very hard reinforced toe box. He felt that it wouldn't be as efficient as the Canyoneer 2 for climbing when you need to get your foot in a small crevice. These boots are very well made though.

Five Ten SAR shoes

These shoes have great ankle support and tread. Used them in the Narrows didn't fall once. Hiked from the bottom up to the subway in 90 degree heat stopping often in deep pools to cool off. Made the heat bearable and I didn't have to take the boots on and off. I took others recommendations and bought a larger size for neoprene socks.

Good boots -

Great support and sticky, I use gators as the top is very open and I get a ton of rocks in them.

Five Ten SAR Shoe - Don't canyoneer without them

I have owned the Five Ten SAR shoe for about a year now and I have taken them down approximately 15 canyons. These shoes are absolutely essential for technical canyoneering because of the stealth rubber soles which have unbelievable grip in both dry and wet conditions. Whether rigging a rap station or downclimbing, these shoes provide stability in precarious situations.

I have used both the SAR and the Canyoneer 2 and many folks are unclear with respect to the differences. The SAR has a steel toe which is both good and bad. On the con side, the steel toe adds weight and does not allow you to jam your toe in smaller spaces while stemming or climbing. On the plus side, the steel toe has saved me bruises numerous times on falls or when walking in rivers with limited visibility below. The rubber and grip is effectively the same between the two models.

I typically wear a size 10.5 or 11 shoe and I went with the 11 in the SARs. I have wide feet and the 11s provided me with a bit more room on that front when I wear my 3mm neoprene socks with a merino sock underneath. Five mm neo socks would be a tight fit, but that is more about the width of my foot as opposed to toe room.

A necessity for canyoneering

The SAR's are surprisingly sticky, making downclimbing a breeze. These shoes will tempt you to downclimb an obstacle you really should be rapping over. Buckle/strap system seems flimsy but shoe is well constructed other than that. Plan on wearing a thick wool or neoprene sock with these shoes or deal with wicked blisters.

Overall not super comfy but tough, warm and supportive.

Five Ten SAR Shoe - Men's

I bought both versions of these boots and as far as comfort and performance hands down the best boots I have had. However, I broke the buckles off of both sets of boots. Construction was a little weak for field work.

fantastic boots...

i live in vermont by the lamoille river. it presents many challenges and the terrain is constantly changing. the stretch i paddle on between jeffersonville and johnson has varied conditions, downed trees, old farm equipment, lots of rocks, both smooth and jagged. after stepping on a rock and almost piercing my kayak boots, and being grateful i got away without stitches - figured it's time for a boot upgrade. i was torn between the SAR and the 2 versions, but after stubbing my toes on too many rocks, i went for the SAR version.

i recieved them, ordered pairs but i'm always between sizes. they tend to run small like salomon trail runners.

got travel orders so i have to wait till next weekend to try them out.

Step up from the Canyoneer 2

This is the same shoe as the Canyoneer 2 but with a little extra grip and is orange! It was made for Search And Rescue, but will work great for Canyoneering and other activities too! Excellent grip, heel cage and added ankle support in the neoprene upper help keep those ankles from rolling, double layer mesh to let water in and out without letting sand in. I wear a 5mm neoprene sock with this shoe so be sure to get a half size bigger so you don't squish those dogs!
