The New Zero

  • When Jason Kehl FA’d his ultra-modern v13 test piece, “The New Zero,” in Southern Illinois, it marked a new level for Jason and a new benchmark for technical climbing.

    Inspired by this commitment to pushing boundaries, The New Zero was born. A new performance benchmark for So iLL shoes and for your climbing.

    The New Zero boasts the performance of a sensitive slipper with the stability of a strapped shoe. One of the most soft/high performing shoes in our line. The New Zero performs on steep overhanging bouldering as well as the smallest of smears. Designed for advanced and elite climbers, The New Zero allows for full sensitivity to nuanced footholds and technical bouldering demands.

Already bought a backup pair

By far the best shoes I've ever climbed in! So soft and comfortable while keeping an aggressive fit that's perfect for overhangs and flexible enough for slab. Next to no break in period makes this a no brainer. I already bought myself a second pair

Arnold San
Soill the new zero 10/10

10/10 love it. Felt tight during the first climb, but that’s typical for any new pair of climbing shoes. Super comfortable after a couple uses and mild to your feet quite nicely.

Cozy in and out of the gym

I’ve tried most all of the Soill models now and I think I like the original New Zero the best! The heel cups exquisitely, they’re comfortable and there’s a decent amount of sensitivity for a full volume shoe.

This was my first time taking them outside. So what better way to get your bearings with a new shoe than with a 20ft slab at Joshua Tree? (Turtle Face Left, V0)

They are also pretty great on everything in the gym so far. Slab and otherwise.

Extreme Soft and comfortable

This is my 3rd shoes for last one year from the beginning. This softness would be very unique among shoes have similar aggressiveness. My next shoes will be new pro line.

I love this shoes. Size chart was right on point. After a couple of sessions I felt very comfortable in them. Definitely recommend...

Perfectly Soft

The synthetic vegan upper fits like a slipper, and the fabric is normally used on the inside of durable work boots in the footwear industry. For a shoe at this level, it is incredibly comfortable. The thread we use for the upper is specially made in the southeast as one of the softest threads in the world, and cannot be felt in the toe box. This shoe is sensitive and every detail matters when performing at a high level.

No Hot Spots

The toe rubber meets the rand by butting up together, with no overlapping. This is incredibly hard to do in production and provides no hot spots.
