By simple twist of luck, ignorance can equal bliss.....I happened to order a pair of Technos for $67.25 when they were on super sale! I climb alot of cracks and liked them WAY better than TC pro's for thinner ones and a good bit else. Bought two more pairs right away. Just broke out my second pair (great uppers for my foot) , get first resoled. Best crack shoe I've had, why take em off the market?
I have been climbing in Sportiva Tradmasters for a while now, and still have a pair of the original 5.10 Huecos (the purple ones). A friend of mine just gave me a pair of 5.10 5x's. I have not used slipper type shoes before. (I know....I need to get out of the Stone Age). My question is this: Do all slippers fit correctly with your toes bunched up, or is that normal for only the downturned type of shoe? My guess is that the 5x is really a sport and boulder shoe rather than a long route shoe. Am I way off here?
RyanD, As far as I know, all models cost 2 Franklins. If you are interested in a particular model, PM me and I will forward the message. I don't have direct contact with Ernesto, and must go through a third party. No NA distribution has been set up yet. I think he would prefer to operate on a low key informal (low overhead) basis.
