"Spiderman Pavement Hoppers" - Daescent review

 
"Spiderman Pavement Hoppers" - Daescent review
 
April 29, 2010 -  Five Ten    
 

"Five Ten made its mark in the climbing community by producing some of the stickiest rubber on the market. Since then, the company has expanded its line to include everything from hipster high-tops that cater to downhill mountain bikers to free-running kicks that transform urban environs into an athlete's jungle gym."

 

The Daescent falls in that latter category, employing "Mystique" rubber—lightweight but ridiculously tough and abrasion-resistant—and a new manufacturing process that stretches the outsole into a thin toe and rand wrap to protect the front of your foot. An EVA midsole and a microfiber-mesh upper provide both in-step comfort and warm-weather ventilation, and the overall aesthetic echoes a retro-hip vibe, which won't matter at all when you find yourself suddenly ascending a slick surface with Peter Parker efficiency. As this shoe targets climbers on dicey, occasionally technical approaches, they size small (go one size higher), and the sole configuration tends to slope inward; one overpronating tester found this uncomfortable"
