Steve McClure's Glad They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To!

 
Steve McClure's Glad They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To!
 
September 24, 2010 - 
 

Which is a good thing really! My first pair of shoes were the EB's, and back then they were awesome. That was like 30 years ago. Recently I saw a friend had some and was psyched to see how they were. Putting them on felt familiar and surprisingly well fitting. I felt like I could go out and climb hard! They were in great condition with a good edge, a collectors item! Setting off I was confident, but then two moves later all the progress in climbing shoes became very obvious!

 

17 years of wearing 5.10 has made me pretty used to the highest quality. I'm so used to them I think my feet have moulded to their shape (I don't even bother with the laces now). EB's were the business back then in climbing shoes, but luckily we don't make em like we used to.
