Five Ten had a very small representation at this years Paddle Expo. Some of the firm favourites like the Water Tennie will be part of the line up next year along with the recently released Canyoneer 3 and the brand new Eddy.
Designed for paddling, fishing, canyoneering and adventure racing, the Water Tennie is the best Amphibious shoe available. The synthetic mesh and neoprene upper has excellent arch support, drainage holes, and a rubber toecap for protection from rocks, sticks and other sharp objects.
In canyoneering, where static friction is life and sliding friction death, Canyoneers have become the gold standard. The Canyoneer 3, with its Stealth S1 soles, reflects more than 15 years of R&D in some of the world’s harshest environments. The new 2015 Canyoneer retains the burly protection and excellent stability of its predecessor, but adds an increased lug height for improved penetration on soft ground and easier mud release. We’ve added welded rubber rands that interlock with the mesh upper to eliminate any chance of delamination; an asymmetric fast-lace system for single-handed adjustability in cold, wet conditions; a protective tuck-away lace pouch and svelte heel cage for torsional stiffness and support. And the flexible ankle cuff gives you support and protection without compromising range of motion.
We are proud to introduce the new Eddy, our solution to water sports. The sleek profile is designed to fit into small play boats and our grippy Stealth Phantom rubber won’t scuff your kayak, SUP or deck.
Five Ten also had a new approach shoe called the Access.
I love the traction Stealth rubber offers and am looking forward to testing a pair of the new Eddy later this year.
