The Force is strong on boulders, sport routes, and in the gym. It can be summoned too on long routes, for those who are crossing over to the trad side and still want to wear their comfy slippers.
- Uppers are synthetic Lorica® for durability blended with leather for comfortable performance.
- Padded mesh tongues.
- Suede footbed and synthetic Taibrelle lining maintain a good fit.
- Tensioned rand and midsole gives underfoot support and focuses power over the toes and forefoot as you weight the shoe.
- Vibram® XS Grip™ rubber soles.
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.
Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.
Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
