La Sportiva's Cobra Eco Climbing Shoe offers the same aggressive performance as the long-lasted Cobra Climbing Shoe, except this model comes in an eco-friendlier fashion. In fact, 85% of all materials are recycled to lower the impact on the environment. The biodegradable leather upper undergoes a metal-free, eco-tanning process to offer the same stretch and feel as the original Cobra, and Frixion Eco sole comes from recycling the same rubber used in La Sportiva's standard production for shoes like the original Cobra. The result is the same aggressive performance as the Cobra when you're climbing overhung routes and problems.
