The new Venom does for the slipper what the Testarossa does for lace-ups. This slipper is a triumph of design and construction. The Venom’s shape comes from the blockbuster Testarossa last, giving it an asymmetrical, down-turned, pocket-seeking toe. The 0.8mm Laspoflex midsole in the forefoot provides a stable platform while retaining maximum sensitivity; sticky XSV on the outsole provides the highest performance rubber available; and a pioneering flexible, breathable, sticky Vibram® Web Rubber upper focuses power to the toe box AND provides a sticky surface for toe hooking. All these innovations relentlessly drive power to the front of the shoe, allowing performance never seen before in a slipper.

Voted 5/5

The first slipper i have used and I was ver y very impressed with the performance of this shoe. I was impressed with the secure fit and precise edging, even though it is down turned for very steep routes.



Needless to say this model excels at bouldering problems.



The fit is great for me, I have somewhat wide feet, and the model runs somewhat in the large side.



The rubber cover over the toe box provide an awesome tool for hooking in pockets in roofs and overhangs.



Excellent shoe.
