Technical lace-ups with moderate support. Excellent for harder face and small-feature climbing, whether trad or sport.
- Cowdura synthetic leather upper has minimal stretch, so the fit won’t change over the life of the shoe.
- Heel fit is somewhat more aggressive than other Anasazi models. It will deliver more power, but may not feel as comfortable out of the box.
- Requires a bit of a hammer toe fit for best performance.
- Soles are 4.2mm Stealth® C4 rubber, with a moderately stiff midsole that performs well on any angle.
A neutral shoe suits long routes and cracks. Moderate shoes allow precision and good edging. Aggressive shoes are downturned 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.
