/ NEW GEAR REVIEW: La Sportiva B5

UKC Assistant Editor Kevin Avery tramps the local moors to test out the B5 approach shoe from La Sportiva.

"The B5 is a comfortable and precise fitting approach shoe that I would use for everything from dog-walking along the canal to flogging up to the East Buttress of Scafell."

In reply to UKC Gear: Kevin says "This usually results in holes in the uppers, peeling sole units oh, and a skunk-like stench"

Sounds like he has owned a few pairs of Salomons then. From their 1st ever Exit lo's to some more recent Exit lows and Exit mids that I have had all 3 of those things have happened.

Montrail discontinued their D7 (was it 7?) but that is what I have been using for a while now and they are good. I also have some of La Sportivas earlier offerings (was it a Serac Pro?) with similar good performance
