    The 5-10's that I ordered from Beyond Bikes in June and had completely forgotten about showed up in the brown truck!

    Backordered... I guess... I think that's what I remember them saying a few weeks after I initially placed the order.

    True... so true!

    I will never order from them again due to bad CS.

    I dunno if it's totally Beyond Bike's fault, though June-Feb is pretty crazy. I recently got a gift card from EMS, so I figured I'd order up some '08 Five Tens - they had to special order them and it will taken anywhere from 4-6 weeks at a minimun. I am guessing even longer, more like 2-3 months.

    How do you like them? I'm considering picking up a pair, plus some decent flats.

    Holy crap! I like a down-turned toe, but that is insane! New offering from 5.10?

    They are definitely worth it.

    Super grippy of course, comfy, durable. I've been beating on a pair for a good year now and they still look great.

    The only downside is that if you plant your foot on the pedal, you better make sure its in the right place - you won't be able to shift your foot around to reposition it without lifting it off the pedal.

    You get used to this though.

    yeah i decided to peruse the 5.10 site and this is what i stumbled upon. it looks rad for some crazy overhanging boulder problems.

    it also looks like pain embodied in a shoe.
