i noticed that the zip up mocs aren't on the 5.10 website in the show section like the rest of the shoes are. Are these lined? synthetic? What of the midsole? My favorite shoes of all time are my old zlippers, which are just about to shit the bed totally... i would really love to replace them, but HATE unlined leather. Unlined leather shoes are only good to me for about 10 pitches between the excruciating break-in process, and the "god damit, they're already stretched out" conclusion.

Thanks a lot vegas. Maybe i'll invest in a pair of anasazi slippers instead.. sigh.

Article: Alpinist Magazine to Suspend Operations
To quote the great noodly being in the sky, the lord and creator off all, the flying spaghetti monster-

"I'd really rather you didn't act like a sanctimonious holier-than-thou ass when describing my noodly goodness. If some people don't believe in me, that's okay. Really, I'm not that vain. Besides, this isn't about them so don't change the subject."


I will really miss the Alpinist. It was by far the best climbing mag available.

For those doubting how it's related to the credit crisis, I offer you these facts: Magazines and other periodicals make the majority of their cash on advertisements. In the past 6 months, ad revenue has fallen significantly because it's just not justifiable to spend money on ads when you're barely able to borrow enough money to make your weekly payroll.

I just hope that this isn't the only casualty of the totally blown economy.

The heel issue is just a sizing thing. 5.10 heel cups work great for me. If none of them fit you, wear something else.
