Description

Show Description

This versatile, high-performance shoe can be used for cranking sport routes or working projects at the gym. The midsole uses a pretensile area under the toes to offer precision when edging and sensitivity when working smears and balancy moves. The Velcro® closure straps pull in opposite directions to tightly cradle the foot and lock the shoe in place.

  • Built on a curved and asymetrical last.
  • Leather and synthetic Lorica® upper with breathable tongue, lined with Pacific lining in the forefoot and Dentex in the back.
  • Midsole is 1.1mm Laspoflex.
  • Sole is 4mm Vibram® XS Edge™ rubber with a 1.8mm rand.
  • Fits narrow to medium feet.

Profile

A flat profile suits long routes and cracks. Curved shoes allow precision and good edging. Hooked shoes are down-turned and tensioned, for power to the toe on steep or overhanging routes.

Asymmetry

Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.

Stiffness

Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
