      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!

I need shoes

Recommended Posts

I have been wearing an old pair of 5.10 shoes (purple with black laces) that I picked up at a yard sale a couple of years ago. I love them. However, there is a chunk out of the toe of the left shoe, and the rubber is falling apart. I need new shoes. I am mostly a multipitch trad climber, and I love long routes in addition to crack climbs at Index.


I need to be able to wear my shoes all day without getting blisters. I also have flat feet, and curved or aggressive shoes are painful and cause excessive tendon strain. Old shoes are fine, as long as they're not about to fall apart. I don't want to pay $100 for a new pair of shoes. Anybody have a pair? I'm size 10 by 5.10 standards.

Resoling is a good way to go ... but in my experience, Ramuta's Resoles in Montana does a much better job. Unfortunately, you have to pay for shipping and wait a few weeks.
