A bombshell success for Scarpa, the Crux climbs, hikes, and spares some cash, too. Walking up to do a route like Eldorado Canyon's classic, Rewritten (5.7), one can rely on the solid foundation of the Vibram® Vertical Approach sticky sole, with engineered EVA for comfort and support. Once on route, the climbing zone under the toes keeps us relaxed and happy. Kevlar® webbing on the natural suede upper retains its shape and to-the-toe lacing lets us customize the fit while on the move. At such a competitive price, it's hard to believe you get a shoe this ready to charge.
