/ Best approach shoe for the USA?
I am looking for something I can live in day to day but also are cushioned enough to put in some millage. Also want them to be light for clipping on the harness.
Thinking about the 5.10guide tennies but not sure if they are cushioned enough for longer walks?
Any suggestions/feedback welcome
i would go for a pair of crocs with some nice thick socks.
or don't be so silly and get a pair that you like and stop thinking it's important.
thats my advice.

Yeah, flippers might be more useful.

Guide Tennies are great for guides at the base of the crag and for doing easier climbs. Not so good for walking in. For long approaches you need an approach shoe with a rocker, or double rocker sole.....and that are also good for easy climbing in.
If you are looking at Five Ten, consider something like Insight or the Camp 4 - both perform great when climbing and are comfortable for long walk ins.

Yup, I had the old quarter dome, much more comfortable for mileage.
Also Five Ten are American so spares will be easier to come by.
Very good, that made me laugh!
