At first glance the new 5.10 Hornet's look like climbing shoes from the future. The Hornets are a bold shoe with bolder features. One of the nicest things about the Hornet’s are the lacing system which allows for an extreme fit. Another feature that has me tickled pink (or tickled green) is the low volume last. This combined with the new lacing system make this new 5.10 shoe a hard one to beat. Definitely my new first choice for hard projects and getting the most under your feet when you need it most.
