Don’t judge the shoe by its … uh … assymetric downturn

Sep. 16th 2010

If you are climbing hard routes these days, downturned shoes are most likely what you’re in.

If you’re perhaps a little on the old-school side and/or you’re just used to using more comfortable shoes, it can be hard to see the light first time you pull on a pair of more assymetrical, downturned shoes, like SCARPA’s Vapor V. Especially if you judge them from this one experience … One might even conclude you only benefit from such shoes if you are climbing super steep, super hard terrain.
