La Sportiva Stickit Rock Shoes - Children to Youths
Suited to indoor or outdoor climbing, theses kids' shoes have highly adjustable hook-and-loop closures to extend their size range. The opening is simple to access, so it's easy for kids to put on their own shoes before they send the gnar.
- Soft, unlined leather uppers.
- Excellent frog theme.
- Slip-lasted construction without midsoles for good sensitivity and flexibility.
- Soles are 3mm FriXion® rubber.
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.
A highly tensioned shoe tends to push your foot forward to create a powerful curve in your toes.
