The Approach

  • With the soul of a vintage climbing shoe and the bones of a technical approach shoe, enter "The Approach." Focusing on durability and flexible construction, we’ve taken our impossibly sticky "Dark Matter" rubber and built an all new cupsole.  On top of that, we constructed a throwback, mid-top approach shoe that transitions perfectly from the crag to the streets and back.

My new favorite shoes

The first time I put these shoes on I was a little unsure of the fit but the more I wore them the more comfortable they became. I recently wore them on a long hike at Enchanted Rock. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they were after hiking for 3 hours. I normally wear a women’s size 9 and ordered a size 7.5, perfect fit.

THE APPROACH

Got these shoes at the risk they might not fit. Lou from chat customer service did a great job helping to get the right size for me. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you Lou! :)

Haven't worn these very extensively yet but.
Size seems to be perfect and it's super cool seeing how the sole and the side are one piece which gives me a lot of hope that they'll past long. Walking around in them is super comfortable and didn't need to break them in.
Also super soft

So Sticky

The grip on the so ill approach shoes is insane, they stuck to almost everything. These shoes are also insanely comfortable and it was really comfortable for so many things, like every day wear.
