Show Description

Designed for futuristic, extremely technical routes. The Futuras are a super-sensitive performance shoe. They translate the texture of the rock and a feel for the surface under your feet to your instinctive centre of your climbing brain. A no-edge design of the sole keeps your foot close in to the rock for solid edging on micro-holds. Unlined synthetic uppers won't stretch and pooch out over time. Overall, they feel thin, sensitive and ready to tackle vexing sporty problems.

  • Uppers are synthetic with leather inserts, unlined for a glove-like fit and sensitive feel.
  • Fast lacing system and hook-and-loop closures allow you to dial in a snug, precise fit.
  • No-edge design for maximum edging power right out of the box.
  • Downward curved profile drives power to the toes.
  • Soles are 3mm Vibram® XS Grip2.

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.

Curved
Asymmetry

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

High
Stiffness

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