A casual looking shoe that’s designed for off-road treks, slabby approaches, technical climbing, and dicey descents. They’re super light, so you barely feel their weight when you clip them to your harness.
- Uppers are made of breathable and quick-drying microfiber.
- Dual-density EVA midsoles.
- Smooth rubber on forefeet for smearing and technical footwork.
- Stealth Mystique® rubber soles have dotted tread heels to provide superior traction.
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.
