Product Description

A revolutionary rock shoe developed specifically for bouldering. Winner of IF Design Product Award 2007 for its original design and the effective degree of innovation.
Whatever technical problem the rock presents, the “Solution” rock shoe gives you the support you need with the most innovative technology to overcome the boulder move.

The randing system P3® (Permanent Power Platform) is the active part of the shoe which gives it its versatility and works in synergy with the base of the foot to spread and maintain tension through time.

Remarkable, but pricey!
I tested a pair of these not too long ago and they are quite amazing. They fit on easily and are really quick to put on. While not super comfortable like a trad shoe, I was quite surprised with how the shoe supported by arch. Definately a high performance shoe ment for bouldering, and maybe some hard sport. I would not wear these to do anything else but bouldering, and consequently, would never buy a pair since I spend most of my time roped up. Pricey for sure, but if bouldering is all you do, these shoes will not disappoint you. They felt solid on hard moves, heel hooks, tiny edges, etc. Just great all around shoe.
