Adidas Bought 5-10 And Discontinued the Canyoneer 3

Postby Karl Klavon » Sun Aug 05, 2018 12:08 pm

Adidas bought 5-10 and dropped the Canyoneer 3 along with shutting off the supply of Stealth Sticky Rubber Soles to other wader and water shoe makers. Astral has come up with a replacement that is claimed to be at least as good as Stealth's S-1 sticky rubber. My Canyoneer SRs have had the front sections of the Stealth out-sole re-glued last year (with E 600 Glue - 6000 PSI/Sq/In holding power, flexible and H2o proof glue) and the arch and heal sections re-glued this season, so I am presently looking for a replacement wet wading/fishing boot.

Two replacement candidates have been identified: Astril's Hiyak Boot and the SoftScience Terrafin Fly Fishing wading boot. Here is some information on both: https://www.exploringelements.com/review-astral-hiyak/ and https://www.softscience.com/terrafin.html

Good news though is that Adidas has put the Stealth rubber soles on some of their own brand boots now. I bought the Terrex Scope High GTX this spring and it does have that great Canyoneer sole, and they’re more comfortable the my old Canyoneers.
Traction and comfort!
Bad news, they were expensive.
