I wore my Five Ten Canyoneering Sar shoes for the first time during an attempt to navigate the rugged Haigler Creek 17 miles to the Hellsgate Wilderness outside of Payon, AZ. Boulder Hopping, downclimbs, swims, etc., all with a 20lb pack on my back. As soon as I started in, the last thing on my mind was my feet. Stealth rubber made every step stick in and out of the water on all angles. The toe box and build up rear support totally eliminated any concerns of pinching, smashing, etc. The light weightand quick draining allowed me to feel like I could "fly through" and increase the normal speed of .5mph to much more. My big mistake was that that this awesome shoe created a false sense of security. I started moving much more quickly over a terrain that I would normally be forced to navigate slowly due to a poorer quality, less protective shoe. During a boulder hop, i stepped through some plant overgrowth and dropped an unexpected foot and a half and went over. My foot stuck on the lower rock and my weight shifted and I fell. I sustained a serious knee injury and I wll be down for a year now. The summary of this review is this shoe is seriously professional product that needs to be

I used this shoe for the first time doing the multiday non technical Haigler Creek in Hellsgate Wilderness outside of Payson, AZ. The shoe's ultra light weight, stickiness, drainage and awesome protective features created a false sense of security for me as soon as I entered the canyon. I lost the tradional sence of "feeling the terrain" while bouldering up and over waterfalls and down climbs. I started "flying" over these obstacles, sticking every rock. I missed a boulder and ended up with a serious knee injury. This is truly a professional shoe that requires some getting used to if all you have ever used before was a non protective water shoe.
I thought I was unstoppable when I had these on.
