      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!

Bigwall All-Day Shoe Comparison

Recommended Posts

Specifically, the differences between the 5.10 Anasazi High Tops vs. the LS TC Pro vs. the Evolv Astroman high tops.

 

Anyone out there who has tried all three, or even two of the three, to provide an informed opinion about the strengths and weaknesses between them for an all day shoe? Are the performance differences more subtle than the price differences? I get the impression that the TC Pros are becoming the gold standard all day shoe, but at a significant price jump from the 5.10's and Evolvs.

 

Any first-hand, or even second-hand info would be appreciated!

dude... seamseal those puppies... well, do it BEFORE the wall.

 

as for shoes, no idea on what's being proposed. I've used thunders for a few and they seem to work. your feet will hurt regardless. put some weight in which ones are easiest to take on and off.

I've only used the TC Pros, which perform better than other shoe I've owned and are quite comfy on my feet. However, they seem to lack durability, especially given the price point on them.

I like Aces -- stiff enough for comfort in aiders, perform well into 5.11 range (they climb better than I do, certainly). Find 'em cheaper than dirt on ebay, and resole 'em. I've got C4 and Onnyx if ya need rubber, or I'll throw a half-sole on 'em cheap. I have several pairs in the bin, sizes ranging from about 9.5 to 11.5 if ya wanna demo or confirm sizing. Or if I have a pair that will work for you, I'll make you a deal that will feel like you stole 'em. Talk to me, John...
