This low-cut rock shoe's updated heel design makes walking in a climbing shoe more comfortable, and it also softens your landings. Molded PU heel provides a cushion for long descents or approaches and helps soften hard landings while bouldering.. Stealth® Dotty treaded heel provides durable traction for walking around the crags without sacrificing performance on the rock. Stealth C-4 sole makes this shoe a superb tool for traditional techniques, performing like a pro on steep smears, cracks and edges. Leather upper has a polyester lining that dries quickly, inhibits mildew and helps to reduce stretching. Asym® slingshot heel and toe keeps the foot positioned over the toes and stabilizes heel for great fit and performance. Asymmetrical construction conforms to your feet and minimizes dead space; side exit heel seam takes pressure off your Achilles tendon. Dual pull-on loops make it easier to get in and out of the shoes without crushing the heel, helping to ensure a long life. Graded midsole allows everyone to get the same great performance and sensitivity regardless of their shoe size.
