Quantums make a leap and Hornets make a buzz.

 
Quantums make a leap and Hornets make a buzz.

Mile End Boot Demo was busy. Every year it is. But this year there was a bit of a stir around the 5.10 stand as the new range of shoes stepped out with their stand out colours. They were flying off the counter. These new tweaked Anasazi lasts have a down-turned toe but a host of other features, and everyone was impressed.

 

Next Demo is at Birmingham Redpoint 9th April. Full new range there.

I gave them a blast on the wall again, on steep boards with bad feet and they stuck like glue.

But I’m still struggling on the super steep roof work. I use my toes so much that with a down-toes shoe I can’t get the hook I need. Maybe I need to get stronger and stop pussying around on my toes! But the Blanco still wins over for me. But I’ll be at Malham later this week and on the walls there a toe hook is never gonna happen. The Quantum will be a leap forward in performance
