Vibram Xs Grip 2 with La Sportiva’s revolutionary No Edge Technology

The XS Grip2 is a high-quality, patented climbing sole from Vibram. The innovative design of this shoe provides exceptional grip while allowing the foot to move freely. The sole also adapts to the micro-supports found on rock faces in Lead competitions. The XS Grip 2 offers a softer feel than its predecessor while maintaining its excellent edging and smearing characteristics.

The No-Edge construction of Vibram climbing shoes allows the foot to exert pressure uniformly inside the shoe, transferring pressure externally to the rock surface. This design enhances sensitivity and durability while climbing and allows the shoe to adapt to changing rock surfaces quickly. Its revolutionary No Edge Technology is compatible with bare feet as well.

The Futura redefines the concept of rock climbing shoes. The Futura’s ultra-sensitive design is made possible by the thin 3mm Vibram XS Grip 2 rubber. Few other rock climbing shoes can compare to the Futura’s sensitivity. It is equal to the Genius and Scarpa Drago, and many climbers claim that climbing in these shoes is like climbing barefoot.

Vibram Five Fingers

The Vibram FiveFingers are an alternative to traditional rock climbing shoes. They feature a thin outsole and separate toe compartments, which give them an entirely natural feel. The five finger design also allows for total freedom of movement and a holistic feel of the ground. In addition, these shoes are fun to wear and provide an excellent alternative to climbing barefoot. Unlike traditional climbing shoes, they do not compromise on support or safety.

The Vibram Five Fingers are not rock climbing shoes, but rather flexible sock-like shoes with a thin layer of hard rubber material on each finger. These shoes are meant to mimic the feel of climbing barefoot. However, because they’re un-sticky, they require a bit of work to grip holds. So if you’re not quite ready to give up rock climbing shoes, consider investing in a pair of Five Fingers for climbing barefoot instead.
