The Feeling of Achievement - Riley Joyce

As I turned my car off in the drive way of my house I saw a package on my front door step. Immediately I knew exactly what it was! I have been waiting for this day for two weeks. It was the new Five Ten Team VXi Shoes! When I ripped open the package I saw the brightest climbing shoes I have ever seen. The lime green Team VXi's were the coolest climbing shoes design I have ever seen! The second thing I noticed about the shoe was its flexibility. 

Towing down to throw to a hold is a great way to try out these new shoes. Heal hooking on a overhang wall with the Team VXi on made the move so much smoother and less work. With flexibility of the shoe it opens the door to many new moves across the wall. The first day I got the Team VXi I began to project in them, my ability to send harder things is because of these shoes. 

With school getting out soon. The weather is getting hotter. It is time to go climb outside! With the new Five Ten Team VXi shoes make me want to train harder for Summer and ABS Season. Thank you Five Ten for including me in this new experience!
