Designed with legendary climber Jeff Johnson, this shoe was our solution to carrying two seperate shoes on a run approach and climb. Jeff wanted to be able to run to the rock, climb up and down, then run back to camp. A lot went into this shoe and it shows. Approach style lacing to toe, sticky rubber toe rand, sticky rubber outsole in the forefoot for edging and durable compound in the heel for running. It has a softer density heel midsole for cushioning even though its a low profile tool. Light and agile, it fits like a climbing shoe when you want, a running shoe when you don’t.
