Five Ten Guide Tennies
« on: October 19, 2015, 08:43:37 AM »
I'm really liking the newest model. Seems more durable than the older version, of which I went through many pairs in the last 10 years! My detailed review of these plus another product giveaway:

Have you ever tried the Camp Four's Strand? I got a ton of use out of my old pair and just replaced them with the new version. I reviewed them back in 2013 here: http://nealpinestart.com/2013/11/02/five-ten-camp-four-approach-shoes/

I agree..and most approach shoes suck I think.  The granda ? is supposed to be OK, but the price is crazy  and Sportiva doesn't fit my foot for shit

I'd rather spend less money on beaters
