Farther down the rabbit hole.
Canyons only increase in magical mystery as you rappel lower and lower, sort of how everything only gets wetter and wetter. The waterfalls pouring down caves make for larger lakes sparkling below you, and the Five Ten Men's Canyoneer 3 Canvas Shoe is ready for each pool of water as well as the dirty trails that get you to the canyon. Its Stealth S1 rubber assures traction on dirty, muddy, and completely submersed terrain.
Consulting with global Search and Rescue Teams, Five Ten underwent the most rigorous process—a process that took fifteen years in production—to ensure enhanced safety features from common hazards in canyon and river environments. The stiff midsole prevents penetration from falling rocks and debris in the flood, and the heel cage provides protection from rolling ankles when you're jumping from ledges to puddles.

I've owned two pairs of canyoneer's over the years and they have been great. I use them primarily for whitewater kayaking and the grip it second to none. The first pair of canyoneer's I had lasted for a little over 2 years of hard use before the soles started to come off. This can be expected with any shoes you put through the works. I recently got the Canyoneer 3's before a self support trip down the grand canyon. They fit true to size and had the same grip I've grown to know and love from 5-10. The one thing i'd say is the ankle support wasn't quite there with this version because switched to laces instead of the buckles. This was one of my biggest draws to the shoe so it was a little disappointing. However it looks like the 'canyoneer 3 canvas shoe' may have fixed this issue with a strap across the top. The shoes I currently have are the Canyoneer 3''s
