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.

Medium
Stiffness

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

Uppers Leather + synthetic
Closure Hook-and-loop
Tension

A highly tensioned shoe tends to push your foot forward to create a powerful curve in your toes.
