Five Ten Women's D'aescent

Comfortable, sneaker-like feel with a roomy toebox.

Brand: Five Ten

Model: Women's D'aescent


[wide fit]

During an epic spring mud season in Alaska, one tester praised the waterproof Alamosa for its “sneaker-like feel and roomy toebox,” which accommodated swelling as he racked up big miles. Best for lighter (less than 30-pound) packs and groomed trails.

The Daescent pushes the envelope of technology by utilizing Stealth Mystique rubber and a new manufacturing process that extends the outsole into a thin toe and rand wrap to protect the forefoot. The shoe features a dual-density EVA midsole and a micro-fiber/mesh upper that is exceptionally durable with plenty of breathability. You won’t find a shoe that climbs better. Consider this an ultra light Guide Tennie– perfect for slabby approaches, technical climbing and dicey descents.
