The Palm ones look OK...



As long as they make them big enough. I'd have got a pair of Palm shoes this year, but they only make the basic shoe in a size 13, not the Granite.

Any chance you can feed the size requests back in for us Simon?!

Email them and request they order some in your size. Or may be ask your local Palm stockist to pre-order a set for you?

Will do; It seemed to me that Palm never made them big enough to begin with rather than the shops being unable to get them!

All these shoes should be available in Merrell's standard sizes and these may include larger models than Palm's regular footwear.

Canyoneers for £66.50 at Surflines!
Does anyone know if they're offering this deal in store, or is it an ebay only deal?

Thanks

Now at far less of a bargain £74 - cheaper to support your local paddle shop?

They are one of my local shops, now at £71.00, do you think they'd knock the ebay fees off if I collect in store?

They're one of my other local shops, seems like a better bet since Surflines put their prices up!

Dah I bet you put them on top of a hot radiator.

I love my 5:10's they give great support and so feel stable on slippery surfaces. My size 8 fit fine in a medium Burn.

I broke 2 pairs in 7 months!!! With no walking around. I think the Palm boot is much better is better. - It is slim fitting - but stretches to fit when wet. Personally a better booyt.

They must have seen your post, as they're back down to £66.99 now.

Do you think they will knock off the ebay fees off if I buy in store?

To be honest I went for the Palm Gradient in the end, with a bit of lace management they're very good. I felt the 5 10's were a bit rigid for me personally.

Personally, If theres any scouting to be done from the riverbank. I want to have faith in my footwear. So far 5:10s are the only footwear that inspire that faith for me. I've got Merrell Gauleys for the Kingpin days and they just slip all over the place. Just my thoughts g
Whats the worst that can happen?

been using five tens for around 7 months now, usually paddling 2 days a week and they have been awesome. So far not really showing any signs of wear and tear at all. they are really good boots as far as proving good grip and support whilst scrabbling around the river bank and also for providing protection in in the water. they are also really comfortable for long walk in's / walk outs. i would really recommend them

Although Dug has probably chosen footwear in the last couple of years (!), FWIW my Canyoneers fell apart after three seasons, and I bought some more.

I find the Palm ones a little scary, lace-wise, and so although I think the Canyoneers are unnecessarily bulky for what I actually do in them, I couldn't be bothered to try anything else.

My left boot Canyoneer died today.

Anyone have a left boot in size 11 or similar which they'll flog?!?!?! :-)

Yep I bought and have almost worn out a set in that time! They've probably got about another 6 months in them so will have lasted two years in total (give or take a little). They don't seem to last for ages but I'll be getting another set as they just grip anything and anything they don't grip they trample into the dirt!

I'm just under 6'2" with size 11 feet.
My Canyoneers fit in: Medium Burn, Large Karnali, Nomad 8.5. and are just about bearable in a Microbat.
They don't fit (or are far too uncomfortable) in: Diesel 75 (and not a chance in a 65), H3 235, Small Burn.

Haven't tried them in anything else "creeky". Hopefully that's some help as regards the original question.

Anyone know where I can actually get any Canyoneers at the moment? Every shop I've tried is sold out of size 9s.

Might be worth looking at general outdoor/climbing/canyoning shops. The last two sets of canyoneers I bought were from Needle Sports in Cumbria. Unfortunately they seem to be out of size 9's too, but might be worth a bell?

Digimeiser, where are you based? My local shop Whitewater the Canoe centre had some in last time I looked, not sure what sizes though.

Found some from Surf Lines in Llanberis. Expensive (£80+£7pp), but at least I'll get them for the Alps. WWTCC, Paddleworks and AS watersports were all out.
