Show Description

These acclaimed lace-ups are a good choice for climbers looking to improve their footwork and tackle more challenging routes or multi-pitch outings. The single piece upper eliminates seams that can cause hot spots on long days. A full length outsole offers a stiff platform that supports your foot through a range of movement, and proven Vibram® XS Edge rubber gives you purchase on gritty or polished stone.

  • Uppers use a single-piece synthetic leather with minimal seams
  • Slightly asymmetric, curved shape for precise foot placement.
  • Mid stiff platforms.
  • Sole is 3.5mm Vibram® XS Edge™ rubber.
