Crux is a stunning technical all-rounder for those who want high level performance with more versatility than extremely down-turned shoes can achieve.
The original Boreal Ninja was the first ever slip lasted rock shoe, which brought about the first extremely lightweight, sensitive, personally adaptive and high performance climbing footwear that could be taken on and off quickly. With the modern norm of performance climbing footwear to use down-turned toe profiles the Ninja has come of age.
The Evolv Ashima has been researched and developed with the help of one of the world's strongest female and junior climbers; Ashima Shiraishi. This model features next level performance, uncompromising precision and has raised the bar for climbing shoes for smaller feet. The Ashima features an aggressive downturned shape and a completely new anatomically molded heel, coupled with an ultra sensitive sole to truly feel and stay connected to the rock.
For beginners or advanced climbers looking for a more comfortable shoe this has just the right features, and pulls them off really well. We were unsure when Adidas had taken over Five Ten, but they've really surprised us with the Kirigami. We reckon it's the best beginner climbing shoe if the fit's right.
