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.

Great shoes

My husband and I got the approach and we love them. They are light, comfortable and safe. Sizing chart info was pretty accurate, we followed the sizing guides and they fit perfectly.

I like The Approach

Like many other So iLL products, The Approach has a stylish design. Strong grip. Sizewise, it is half size smaller than my sneakers.

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.

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! :)
