The Latest Shoes from Five Ten

Five Ten has released their new Asym, a versatile shoe for sport climbing and bouldering. “For beginners seeking performance and advanced climbers looking for comfort, these shoes offer versatility for sport routes. They’re built with an asymmetrical hook-and-loop closure that helps dial in a secure fit and an unlined leather upper that conforms to the foot for extra comfort. A moderate downturn and a medium-stiff midsole let you take on technical moves with ease. They have a Stealth® C4 rubber outsole for uncompromising grip and edging power and a rubberized print on the forefoot for extra durability and support.

Revamped Scarpa Shoes

This season, Scarpa has revamped the Vapor V “A precise, versatile and best-selling shoe that marries a comfortable fit with steep climbing performance, the redesigned Vapor V features fresh colors, a microfiber upper and our Bi-Tension™ active rand for a premium combo of durability and sensitivity.” The new Vapor V also features a redesigned heel rand most like the Instinct VS and VSR to give climbers even more precision on heel hooks
