Urmas, amazing. A friend told me about this awhile back but for the life of me could not remember the name. Are all models 2 bills or just the legends?? I've got a bit of an Enzo fetish, which suck for any crack but finger cracks IMO but are amazing at many other things, mocs on steroids. Just broke out my last pair a week ago but would love to be able to score some again one day. Cheers.

take those Enzos to Indian Creek. They're perfect there. Absolutely my favorite shoe for thin hands and finger cracks there.

The guide tennies are hands down the best shoe for #3 and bigger cracks

Gonzo that's what i hear & hope to try em out there one day, to be honest if i could wake up in the creek tomorrow i'd climb in a pair of high heels.

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?

Since we're tail kin' shoes here.........

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.

they just don't make them like they used to
these look comfy, and i hear the rubber was extra sticky, that's why they placed so little pro (...or was it because they had to hammer everything in)
