New 5.10 Climbing Shoes

I'm still baffled as to why climbing shoe companies stopped adding the cushion on the heel of bouldering shoes. Of all the shoes needing some more cushion for the pushing (think: Pusher), it is a climbing shoe! We climb up the rock, and then we fall off the rock, what better way to protect our little feet than to add a little protection. I've been looking at new shoes and the 5.10 Vmile climbing shoe came to mind. What I like about the shoe is its simplicity of design. If you look at the design, it isn't that uncommon from the Anasazi. It has a straight-toe design that's not too agressive. In other words, comfort seems to be the point with the Vmile. Get yours here...
