The climbing community has never seen a pair of plastic pullers like So Ill's Kick Climbing Shoe. In brilliant shades of blue, the Kick sports a moderately stiff, slightly asymmetrical, and subtle arched style suitable for intermediates looking for extra grip on more difficult boulder problems. Its Dark Matter rubber comes from So Ill's UnParallel Rubber family, which has been used by the US Navy Seals during covert operations. Plus, the shoe's non-marking properties ensure long-lasting durability. Although the leather upper stretches over time, So Ill recommends you get the same size as your street shoe.
