Bye Bye Marshmallow.
If you've ever gone swimming in a pair of running shoes, you're well acquainted with the soggy marshmallow feeling that ensues afterward. However, had you been wearing the Five Ten Men's Eddy Pro Water Shoe, you probably wouldn't be enduring such a sensation. Built specifically for kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding, the Eddy features hydrophobic mesh for quick-drying performance and breathability. Meanwhile, the drainage ports help increase comfort and quickly drain water. The Phantom rubber outsole also provides traction when you need it most, and it is equipped with a climbing zone for more technical approaches.

One Trip Wonders
Sole delaminating and tears on the sides of the ball of the foot after 16 days on the grand canyon. Very comfortable and grippy, but they don't appear to last.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was looking for a shoe to take canyoneering. The original 5.10 Canyoneers were just a little too big and bulky for my preference so I opted to try these since they are more streamlined and lighter.
I put these shoes through the ringer, the first canyon I tried these shoes was in Heaps Canyon in Zion National park. We spent a little over 20 hours on that particular trip. They felt solid when I was scrambling over exposed terrain and needed sure footing. They stuck to the rock when I was in water or climbing in and out of potholes with slippery surfaces. Even though these shoes are lighter and thinner and don't offer as much support as the Canyoneers they offered enough comfort and support to get me out of the canyon without any issues or discomfort. If you're looking for a shoe to take canyoneering try giving these a go.
