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.

Comfortable and stylish street shoe

Purchased the Approach as a street / leisure shoe. Comfortable right out of the box. The fit is true to size. The space in the toe box is just right. The drop heel design is unexpected. I love the minimalist design - its fresh and unique. I have not worn them much so far, but looking forward to logging many more steps.


THE APPROACH - VINTAGE MEETS MODERN

Inspired by vintage climbing shoes and featuring a "Dark Matter" cupsole, The Approach has what you need, to and from the crag.
