DECENT FEATURES of the Five Ten Men's Canyoneer SAR Shoe
Just like the Canyoneer2 except that it has a reinforced toe box and is a neon orange color. This shoe is rugged and will hold up to many canyons. The holding straps are typically too long. The shoe is not the most comfortable on very long approaches. But this shoe shines in wet environments due to its grip. The ankles have ~4mm of neoprene- in cold water you still want neoprene socks though. The shoe protects your ankles well. These shoes typically fail when the sole of the shoe delaminates from the body of the shoe. I've tried to glue old ones together without success. However, this shoe survives better in canyons than any other shoe I've used. Fit is pretty true to size.
Needed a boot for a 3 week wet-foot canoe trip. I normally wear a narrow size 10.5 boot so I figured I'd better go a size and a half bigger. Totally paid off! They fit perfect!! Well... I do wear a thick sock/thin sock combo hiking anyway. Drainage was really cool. Traction over wet rocks, loose dirt and mud... awesome. The composite-toe never felt in the way. The buckle system worked well holding the boot on tight. Oh ya, almost forgot... they are an insane orange color that seems resistant to any color dimming muck I tried to put on them. You'll never loose them!
