      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!

Has anyone field tested these yet? Comments on fit and comfort for their advertised function- all day trad?

Thanx-

Mark,

 

I tried these on yesteday at Mountain gear. These were my street shoe size, 10.5.

Fit: good suction cup sound when putting it on. Didn't feel like there was any excess volume, however my toes didn't fit right, hard to put into words but when climbing on their wall i kept experiencing a pinching pain. A size up would have produced too much extra space. I found the TC pro to have a better shape toe (for me), but fitting the same elsewhere, however still some discomfort in the toe.

 

huecos I ended up getting the five ten huecos. They fit very snug but without pain and are similar to my beloved scarpa technos. Hope that helps a little bit.

 

And for what its worth: My climbing preference is alpine rock and multipitch trad.

Thanks kevino,

 

Did the Astroman's allow your toes to lay completely flat? Or do they "point" your big toe slightly. I like the TC's except that I have flat, wide feet and my arches tend to cramp in them. Was hoping these Astroman's might "point" my big toe slightly much the way my beloved Anasazi VCS do but provide a more comfy all day fit than the latter.

 

Thanks for the reply--

They pointed slightly, but they also forced my 2nd toe to curl and pinch the 2nd toe and big toe, which is where my discomfot came from. But a that probably has lot of do with my toes. My feet are otherwise pretty skinny and otherwise unremarkable regarding shape.

 

I'm sure you already know this but five ten has a high top anasazi.

Yeah, I just found out about them a couple days ago. Haven't heard much about them either.

 

Seems worthwhile to try both on. Thanks for the input!
