- Ramsey Outdoor refers to the unisex version

Built smart for bouldering and sport use, the Red Chili Spirit VCR offers heel shock absorption and easy entrance and exit. Impact Zone heel protection uses a high-density wedge of EVA foam for shock absorption and protection on long walk-offs or misadventures with gravity. Comfortable and adaptable to most feet, the three strap hook-and-loop closures make quick work of dialing in just the right fit across the instep. Breathable split-grain leather uppers are flexible and supportive; dual heel loops help ease entry. A sharper, semi-asymmetric last and low-profile toe shape offer enhanced performance and sensitivity for precise footwork. Re-shaped heel and slingshot rand wrap and secure shoes to feet while keeping toes aligned at front of toe box. Fully randed lower uppers add extra gripping power and durability; graduated midsole delivers superb flex and feel. Super sticky 5mm Red Chili RX 1 rubber soles stick tenaciously and respond well to all types of rock surfaces. Sold in UK sizing.
