Choose the right approach shoe to cover your terrain

As most outdoor climbers spend more time reaching the wall than scaling it, you need to approach with shoes that are tough enough to carry you through rough land. Trainers that include soft midsoles and knit textile uppers for complete comfort during long days on the mountain. Rubber outsoles that remain firm on wet or dry terrain, grip you can trust to protect you when edging and smearing.
