Review: FiveTen Galileos Can Edge On A Dime

I’ve had these shoes for about a year now. In the past my experience with 5.10 was that they made good shoes which didn’t hold up well over time. Thankfully it appears they have worked out these quality control issues, as this pair has held up extremely well and the new incarnation of 5.10 rubber sticks like a charm. I have them sized relatively small for performance oriented climbing and found them to be an excellent choice for bouldering and sport climbing. If I want to feel more of the rock underfoot, I’ll usually reach for something softer, but if I know I’ll be standing on small holds, these are my shoes of choice. Overall I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a high performance edging shoe.

Anybody else have any experience with these shoes? Comments are on.
