Katie can't decide what shoes she wants next, so you're gonna do it for her. You've got three choices. Check em out.
Five Ten Team Shoe
She loves it. They're her current favorites. Sadly they're also a full size too big. Five Ten doesn't seem to make any shoes down to her size, 5, so she just wears a 6 in those.
Five Ten Hornet
I've been kind of enamored with this shoe since Nic showed it to me last summer. It's got a lower volume last and asymmetrical lacing so the fit should be very nice on them. Once more they only go down to size 6 but with laces it might be just a bit better. Sadly it does seem that these have the Dragon heel instead of the Team heel. As a bonus it's got mystique rubber, so that's nice at least.
Scarpa Instinct S
With he options somewhat scarce in her size she's turned her attention to a slipper from Scarpa, the Instinct S. My understanding is that this is their response to shoes like the Project and the Speedster. A 3MM outsole with little to no midsole and a nice toe cap. It seems like a solid shoe that would do most things well. I've got not other experience with it other than a very brief once over a year and a half ago.
Jon, you got demos??
I know a few people have them and those I've talked to seem to like 'em so who knows?
So there you go. Tell Katie what she should get. Vote on the poll to the right. You have until Monday the 24th at 1:00PM.
On the home front it's currently snowing and this is all I got to say about that.
Ian is going through what I imagine Nic went through last winter. We're getting desperate and waiting for a 30 degree day to go to the lake. Hoping it's soon.
