Starting now, Rock/Creek is exclusively launching the new Quantum Climbing Shoe from Five Ten. Built for performance with a hint of cush for comfort, this climbing shoe has a downturned toe and a low volume heel cup for enhanced fit. Think Anasazi Lace-up with an aggressive toe.
Other features include a precision fit lace up closure, a durable Cowdura upper, Onyxx outsoles and Mystique rands for the ultimate combination of friction, precision and durability.
Local sales rep John Dorough emphasizes the technical aspects of the climbing shoe:
“(In) my opinion, one of the best shoes we have built to date… I wore mine for the first time this past weekend, and after each climb I was all smiles. The Quantum has taken top shelf in my Five Ten arsenal, which is (after) 8 years of repping nearly every shoe built. Goodbye Anasazi lace-up… hello Quantum!”
Here’s a list of all things Quantum you may come across online; not to be confused with the awesomeness of the Five Ten Quantum Climbing Shoe: Quantum Theory, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Physics, Quantum Battery, Quantum Energy, James Bond’s Quantum of Solace, and the late 80′s TV show Quantum Leap!
