The Five Ten Aleon is a high tech bouldering and sport climbing shoe that offers superb performance through a moderate level of down-turn.
Part of the brand's new generation of rock shoes, the Five Ten Aleon has an asymmetric last that differs from existing models, but its technicality is reminiscent to that of the Team and Hiangle. Having said that, the Primeknit sock-fit entry and refined fit makes the Aleon much more comfortable and easier to slip on and use straight out of the box. Designed with input from legendary climber Fred Nicole, the Aleon is a single strapped, medium stiffness climbing shoe. The stiffer midsole has a diamond cut out in the toe box to retain flex and sensitivity whilst giving more support on tiny holds.
A brand new last has a wider forefoot and a more pointed toe box than others in the range - this directs power to the big toe and offers greater precision. The shoe also features a very strong tension rand and a high arch which further reinforces the power being put through to the big toe. The use of time tested C4 rubber for the outsole ensures huge levels of grip along with durability and a large rubber toe patch makes for more stable toe hooking.
