/ DEAL OF THE MONTH: Epicentre Review: Five Ten Anasazi Pink

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
At home on a variety of angles, 3 kbThe Anasazi Pinks were one of the most popular shoes of the past 10 years. Comfortable, precise and with glue-like sticking power they became a firm favourite amongst everybody, from leading lights at the cutting edge, right down to mere mortals looking for all-day comfort without sacrificing performance. Plus they were pink. When they were dropped from Five-Ten's range there was many a howl of despair from the Plantation to Huntsman's. After a few years in the wilderness, thought lost to the mists and legend of rock shoes past, they have returned. With boasts of improved fit and last, we've had a look to see if they live up to the hype and to see if a new classic has arrived.

Regarding the rubber, the good word from the folk at Five Ten UK is that:

"As long as you are not a toe dragger then they are comparable to other brands. The rubber feels soft, but its actually quite strong, having a very high tear strength. This means it is more predictable than other rubbers, and will creep, rather than skid off unexpectedly. Also it is a memory rubber, so it forms back into shape. Try sticking your fingernail
into it..."

I've since tried digging my nail in and it does seem to reform pretty well so we'll have to see how they go!

That's a great review and very indepth, but what's with calling it 'deal of the month'.
The epicentre are selling them at rrp, unless I've missed something.

In reply to UKC Gear: Writing so much about a pair of boots is...impressive. It's hardly "Deal of the Month" as I got a pair this weekend 15 cheaper...perhaps you mean "Review of the Month"?

Probably more to do with paid-for posts always being 'Deal of the Month' whatever's posted. Mildly misleading admittedly.
