Sprint up the hardest routes and boulders at the gym wearing So Ill's brilliantly blue Runner Climbing Shoe. This shoe sports a moderate downturn with thin midsole so your toes can feel the subtlest jibs on vertical to overhung climbs. Its Dark Matter rubber comes from So Ill's Unparallel Rubber family, which the Navy Seals use for reliable traction during covert missions, and its non-marking convenience ensures long-lasting durability. The synthetic upper features a padded tongue, and since it won't stretch much, So Ill recommends sizing this shoe like a regular street shoe.


Ideal for intermediate to advanced climbers, So iLL's The Runner is a high performance, high functionality climbing shoe. Made of rubber originally designed for Navy Seals for superior grip, this shoe is inspired by a retro running shoe with a 3-point closure system and thick padded tongue. We suggest guys order a half size up from street shoe size for a tight and functional fit and ladies order one size down for a tight, functional fit.


They may look like retro kicks, but the So iLL Runner climbing shoes mean business on the rock. Downturned toes help you crush steep moves while fishhook midsoles help you edge teeny-tiny face holds.
