Technical information

SHOE SHAPE

Slight asymmetry, offset towards the big toe: this shape gives you great grip on small holds at the expense of some comfort (especially for those with a flame foot shape)
Shape suited to technical climbing.

SOLE

Midsole and outsole: XS GRIP Vibram® rubber, excellent grip and resistance to wear.

UPPER

breathable lorica® synthetic leather (flexible and precise) in forefoot areas, leather upper. Fastens with two rip-tabs.

SIZING RECOMMENDATIONS

If you are a climber working to improve your skills, you can buy them tighter (1/2 -1 size below normal, for example), but it's important they don't hurt, so that your foot can develop mobility, proprioception, and strength.
If you are an advanced climber, we suggest you take the time to try different sizes (1 to 2 sizes below normal) to find the best compromise between comfort and compression for more force when pushing off.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.

RESOLING TIPS

The sole bushing wears out quickly when climbing. For regular climbers, the life of the bushings is generally 6 months to 1 year. This depends on many factors (type of rock, climbing style, types of routes, etc.). As soon as you see the synthetic leather through the bushings, you must get them resoled. If you pierce the synthetic leather, resoling will be difficult. Our Decathlon workshops offer resoling services to extend the life of your shoes.
