the best possible shoe for technical canyoneeringI first tried out the 5.10 canyoneer on a trip to zion and i purchased a pair of retired rentals from ZAC and even with blown out soles and holes in the uppers the shoe performed amazingly well. My first day I started with a pair of keen newport h2 that was huge mistake. i went to ZAC and grabbed the second hand pair which i wore for the rest of the 5 days i was there. im sure the support and comfort of a new pair will be superior but for a the ones i had i was also impressed fits very similar to the guide shoe they make with the same sole neoprene kept my feet warm and comforatble. basically a beefy approach shoe that drains and dries well like i previously said simply the best shoe for tech canyoneering.

GREat gearI am going to use these for the narrows at Zion in July. I am a female who wears size 7 shoes. I order 6.5 men's canyoneer shoes since it's the best canyoneering shoes out there. I am going to wear these with a pair of 5mm neoSport socks. I've tried them on with the socks and it feels good ! Looking forward to the trip and using them. ,,My husband also has a pair, he also went a full size up to wear with the 5mm neoprene socks.

The best grip in wet canyons. Hard to adjust.By far the best gripping shoe in wet canyons. Amazing traction but it comes with a price. Hard to adjust with the buckle closure. Laces or a ratchet would work way better. I love them in the canyon but the long hikes in or out have proven to Very Painful in these. Very hard to control your foot movement with only 2 buckles. Loss of toenails on long hikes are very possible.
