A Freerunner's Review of the Atlas Pamplona - Matthew Barnes

 
A Freerunner's Review of the Atlas Pamplona - Matthew Barnes
 
August 24, 2011 -  Matthew Barnes    
 

I took some time out of my training to lace up the NEW Pamplona and take it for a spin...

 

When I heard that that Five Ten had created a shoe for the running of the bulls...I just had to try them out!

This week, while training for the upcoming Art of Motion, I switched out my favorite freerunning trainers for the Five Ten Pamplona. My first impression was, "WOW, these things are light!" Sure the daescents I train in are REALLY light, but keep in mind this is pretty much an everyday shoe, not the lightweight climbers and performance freerunning trainers you have come to love. They also fit really well. I hate most of my street shoes; normally, my feet slide all around inside and it makes me feel uncomfortable to even think about running, but in these I ACTUALLY feel like I could run, maybe even from some bulls! Next thing on the list is grip...just what you would expect from Five Ten: perfection. I gave them the usual wallflip and rail precision tests with no proplems.

All in all, I like them. I mean don't get me wrong, I still can't give up my freerunning trainers as my everyday shoes, but if you stood me up in the streets of Pamplona in these guys, I'd trust them well enough to stay ahead of the pack. And hey, they come in your favorite color...so long as your favorite color is REALLY red!
