Designed by legendary climbers Fred Nicole and Dave Graham, the Five Ten Dragon is an updated, lighter-weight version of the original Dragon. It’s a high-performance shoe that works especially well for technical bouldering on steep, difficult surfaces.
The updated Dragon features a split sole, an asymmetrical lacing system and extended toe rands for better hooking. It was made with Stealth® HF (high friction), a soft rubber that provides good friction even without much pressure from the toes and has a redesigned heel cup that reduces dead space for a tighter fit. The Dragon comes with a moderate downturn and high volume and is suitable for climbers with narrow feet.
