  • Built on an all-new, hand-shaped, downturned last with the expertise of Jae Jung and consultation with Fred Nicole, STAY features a durable and comfortable Italian style 6-piece, unlined, vegan microsuede upper with a performance single-strap closure and d-ring integration for an ultra precise fit. The split-outsole is outfitted with high performance Vibram XS Grip rubber for durability while including generous toe rubber coverage for all your hooking needs. This thinner rubber shoe creates sensitivity and larger contact patch (of rubber) when smearing on slab. STAY is a very soft, regular volume shoe which is ideal for vertical and overhung routes, large volume type climbing, and indoor competition climbing while offering enough support for small edging and slab. This shoe is unisex and developed for both indoor and outdoor climbing.

Great gym shoe

1/2 size up fits like a glove for my quite wide feet. Really happy with my purchase!

Best Performance from So iLL yet.

Huge upgrade. I have been using New Zero Pro for several years, as well as testing a plethora of other models. While the NZP was always my go to, I’m fully converted to the Stay after only 1 session. Much needed improvements in heel and toe hook ability with this model, the shoe is a soft sensitive model great for new style comp climbing, but also the toe is more ridgid than its predecessor allowing for a more stable toe on smaller edges making it suitable for overhung and slab. No more inner lining means the shoe is a lot lighter and less likely to rip at the pull tabs. The heel is narrow and fits well if sized properly.

We’ve spent the last two years (and maybe a little longer) concepting, designing, and sampling with Fred Nicole and Jae Jung – true climbing shoe heroes and experts in the field.


Factory visits during line production and frequent, in-depth communication with our manufacturers were imperative to ensure all the details were there.


It was important to get the technical aspects spot on whether you’re climbing indoors, competing, or out in the elements. Our new shoes models have endured rigorous testing from indoor and outdoor climbers.
