Topic - All day trad shoe recommendations

snoop6060 - on 07 May 2013
So its time for a replacement pair of bimblers as I like to call them. I have had a few pairs of the 5.10 moccasyms which are great comfort wise, but become a bit sloppy in the heat.

So anyone got any recommendations? Ideally they would be:

- Super Comfortable, this is the main aim.
- Stiff as possible. Mainly for foot support, but also have a good edge when I get on something harder.
- Be able to cope in the heat when my feet expand. So should be able to breath a bit, and stretch. I suffer really bad with hot feet.
- OK for a resole (The moccasyms are not).
- Ok for walking a short walks in like the descent from Gogarth Main.
- Bonus points if they are good for climbing cracks as i'm off to squamish later in the year.

Current Contenders are:

5.10 Hueco - They seem stiff, and made of leather so should stretch/breath ok.

la Sportiva Trantula - Come recommended by a mate, not tried them.

La Sportiva Mythos - Like the classic look of these, and they seem stiff enough. Don't really know much else about them. I cannot find a shop near me (Stockport) that sells them either. Anyone know of anywhere?

Any comments on the above 3 or any other recommendations?

Cheers,

Si
