Moccasyms' high-performance design is ideal for bouldering, thin cracks, training and competition

  • Semi-flexed slip-lasted design is unlined to offer sensitive rock "feel" and precise control


  • "Slingshot" heels and assymetrical shape of toe boxes focuses body weight over big toes for the most power

  • Stealth(R) C4 ultra-sticky rubber outsoles grip nearly every surface


  • Full-wrap C-4 rands and heels give extra traction for cracks, edges and smears


  • Breathable split-leather uppers with elastic insole bands provide a skin-tight fit and sensitive feel

On the positive side:



I have been wearing them since 1995 and love them because of their excellent fit and grip...

Owning 8 different models of various makes (Boreal, La Sportiva, Asolo and 5.10) I have found out that the Moccasym will transform any little irregularity of the rock surface into a step...



On the same bouldering problem, my Lasers slipped while the Mocs made the crux look like a walk...



They stretch (see below) to the shape of your foot.



All in all excellent smearing, great feeling, soft and comfortable yet extremely precise, lovely in thin cracks and pockets and beautiful in overhangs





On the negative side:



They made my feet ache on long pitches with thin (brick) edges where all the weight goes on the big toe...



They wear fast...



You might have trouble if heelhook is the key...



Do they Stretch??? I wear size 7 1/2 -8 (UK) ... my first Moccasyms were 7 1/2... After 4 single pitch routes I had to wear them with socks... The next day I went and bought 6 1/2 ... Yes, they do stretch a fair bit, so bear that in mind when you buy for the first time...

Great shoe
This is a great versatile shoe. It is comfortable, conforms well to my foot, and is great for gym or all day use. They are so good that they got stolen from my crag pack.

Good, but ouch
I want to like these shoes. They climb well and I've done some soloing in the Flatirons in them. That said, I don't use them as they KILL my feet, even after very short periods of time. Hmmmm....
