Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Super flexible and sensitive, the Theory is ready to take on your hard gym project or your next comp. The grippy Vibram sole is thinner in areas where you need less rubber, allowing for more flex in the forefoot, and a combination of No Edge and an edge let you bear down on small foot holds without losing surface area for modern gym volumes.

  • Uppers are leather with microfibre, unlined for a glove-like fit and sensitive feel
  • Hook-and-loop closure makes for easy on/off and lets you tune in a performance fit
  • P3 rand retains the downturned shape and directs power to the toe
  • Large rubber toe patch helps when scumming
  • Vibram XS Grip2™ has a variable thickness for flexibility where you want it
  • No Edge D-Tech combines a small edging area with a No Edge area
