Climbing Magazine Picks the Arrowhead for Editor's Choice
 
March 31, 2011 -  Five Ten    
 

The latest issue of Climbing Magazine (May) featured the 2011 Gear Guide. They research and test numerous climbing products, and only 9 get chosen as "the most innovative and exciting new products of the year." This year for rock climbing shoes the 2011 Five Ten Arrowhead got the honor. "We climbed extensively in more than a dozen new shoes for this issue's review, and the Arrowhead hit the bull's eye."

 

"As one tester put it, this shoe 'crushes every angle of rock.' Testers called the Stealth Onyxx rubber on the sole 'durable and very sticky. The synthetic upper, lined with a brushed microfiber, will limit stretch and dry quickly, while a split, padded tongue adds a final touch of comfort."

Five Ten is honored to have been chosen as Editor's Choice for Climbing Shoes. Thank you Climbing Magazine.

Joining the Arrowhead in Climbing Magazine's 2011 Gear Guide review:
- Hueco - "The Hueco will comfortably fit almost any foot. A thin, EVA heel wedge absorbs shock on descents, and the low ankle cut offers uninhibited range of motion."
- Warhawk - "This beefed-up climbing (or stripped-down approach) shoe is legitimately super-sticky and comfortable for fourth-or fifth-class climbs, as well as scrambles that have a long approach or extended walk off."

Be sure to pick up the 2011 Gear Guide issue for the full reviews and check out more at Climbing.com
