I've been using 5.10 for quite sometime now and am super stoked on them. I use the Savants which have the awesome sticky rubber 5.10's known for and they have a partial mesh upper so they drain quickly. I've hiked into many over-nighters with these shoes and they're reliable. The soul is pretty beefy and the padding really comfortable so hiking into Cherry or other long distance runs is manageable. With all shoes, it's not a question of if but when will they'll blow out. Start putting that shoe into water all the time which degrades the material strength and now it's a question of design and materials. 5.10's making the best that I've found so far. It's not that they won't blow out, it's that they last longer than others. I have both the Water Tennie and the Savants. My Water Tennies are for daily creeking missions where portaging is a reality but they aren't very long. The Savants are for multi-day trips where they're significant approaches and/or portages during the trip. I also use the Savants when I'm teaching or guiding because I like the beefier feel.
To air is human, to get big air divine.
