Product Description

Taken from the manufacture's website...

"On the way to Crystal Crag, the technical Cragmaster shoe fluently handles the approach, the rock scrambling and the edging. For ground feel and optimal friction on rock, we utilize an ultra-premium, die-cut climbing rubber on the outsole, protective toe and heel. The outsoles are thinner to provide grip and tactile sensation, but will wear faster. They are designed to be resoled and not recommended for casual, everyday wear. The waterproof nubuck leather upper and a breathable mesh lining provide comfort, and the to-the-toe lacing system provides control and a precise fit; a low-profile midsole cushions and supports. Other features include a nylon injection-molded arch shank for arch support and natural forefoot flex, a 15% recycled EVA footbed and insole and a Vibram® Idrogrip New Boulder climbing rubber outsole that grips. Please note that climbing rubber will mark surfaces, so wear with care."

Awesome approach shoe
This shoe has been an excellent approach shoe for me. I am comfortable soloing up to about 5.2 in them and have done moderate free moves on aid routes up to about 5.7-5.8. I use these primarily as an aid climbing shoe and am very happy that the stiffer sole and rubber toe rand makes my foot comfy in my aiders. I've put these through serious abuse and they still look great. These are the best approach shoe I've owned.
