      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

PROPS TO FIVE TEN

Recommended Posts

My oldest just got a pair of the 5.10 mini mocs yesterday...these things are awesome...My guess is that they are fragile but should climb really well. The leather is thin, almost glove like and they are soled with rand rubber (very thin). The best part is they are scaled down anazasi toes as opposed to the normal "kid" shoe (think bulbous but comfy toe box). They should climb face pretty damn well...

 

He'll probably outgrow them as fast as he tears them up...

 

Its awesome to see the climbing industry following the ski industry and outdoor industry in producing quality high performance equipment for kis. Not just crap...

 

can't beat the price either...

i would not recommend these to someone who doesn't have their footwork down though...They are not built tough so will not hold up to sloppy and thrashing footwork...they are truly a high performance slipper...

OK. Good to know.

 

$40 is indeed a good price. :tup:

Yeah. My kids do chores too. :rolleyes:

It's still more work for me to get them to do them than it is to just do it myself. :mad:

 

It's hard not to spoil the little rascals. :moondance::moondance:

Agreed. But that doesn't make me their freakin maid.

I also talk to them about time commitments and planning their activities so they will have time to play.

My youngest is 10 now and she totally gets it.

It is important to have downtime.

Hey kid rock shoes are concerned, who makes the smallest pair of rock shoes? Simone has already taken an interest in my wall so I figure it a matter time.
