Very good shoes for via ferrata climbing. Light, firm sole, high lacing.
- Stiff (but not too much)
- Rubber lining
- For some people may be little narrow tip of the shoe
I have had them just for two weeks, but I love them.
I like design. I like they are low weight. They have very good grip on stones and they are perfect for ferrata climbing. They are stiff, but not as much as for example Asolo Distance shoes, even though very good for walking on loose rocky terrain.
For longer walks they may be are bit narrow in the tip for some people. I suggest to try to walk in them at least 15 min before buy.
