Earlier this year there was a lot of interest shown in a pair of mysterious blue Five Ten shoes that looked very similar to the recently discontinued, but highly popular, V10s. Most notably they were seen in the video of Paul Robinson on the 2nd ascent of Psychedelic, Kevin Jorgeson’s blog and just recently in the video of Dave Graham sending Big Worm.
A sneak peak
My attempts to pry information about these new shoes out of various Five Ten sources were not successful, although I was able to see the prototypes in person last month. What I saw was very promising and I was excited to see the finished product, whenever that may be.
Apparently inspired by the Jet7, Dragon and 5x shoes, the Team 5.10 has a new heel and Stealth Mystique 3.5 mm rands and outsole. Don’t get too excited though, it will be the Spring of 2010 before you can get your hands on a pair.
