Bret Johnston Tries out the New Quantums

I made a routine shoe order a couple weeks ago, getting the usual suspects: A pair of Dragons and some hiking shoes, but to my surprise, along with the boots I had ordered I pulled out a pair of awesome looking purple climbing shoes. I thought to myself, “what is the deal with these things? They look amazing.” I immediately made a call to Five Ten to get the low down on this climbing shoe. This is what they told me.

 

The shoe is called the “Quantum.” It is a slightly down-turned version of the Anasazi lace-up. First of all, I love the Anasazi lace-ups. Giving it a slight down-turn makes it one of the most versatile shoes I have ever worn. I have already fallen in love with this shoe and I can tell that it will always be in my quiver of go-to shoes when I have something serious to climb. This shoe does everything from precise edging to overhanging mega, not to mention the color. Purple is always a fashion forward choice. I have been here at the Red River Gorge for two weeks now and I have basically been wearing this shoe exclusively. It’s hard to beat.
