The Setter

  • Our route setting friends presented us with a challenge - to design a shoe from the ground up (lol) that could be worn to the gym, sustain the rigors of routesetting/forerunning sessions, and maintain a comfort level that would allow them to be worn wherever you’re headed next. Challenge accepted. We delivered. (Ok, so they helped.)
    Set forth in our latest shoe model inspired by and designed alongside, our route setter friends. With a Dry-Tex upper, molded Dark Matter Rubber outsole, generous fore-foot coverage (for toeing down on holds/forerunning), reinforced, double-stitched toe-cap for durability, cork foot bed, and collapsible heel, you’ll be wearing these shoes to the gym, through the gym and anywhere you’re headed afterward.
    Not a route setter? Not a problem. These shoes function as an everyday, all day, all around comfortable shoe.

These are AWESOME

I'm not a setter and I still love these shoes. They've become my everyday shoe, even when I'm not planning on going to the gym. The cork insole is fantastic, it has a great feel if you're not wearing socks. I was really happy when I found out these had the dark matter rubber - huge plus!

I get a lot of compliments on these shoes and plan on buying another pair later this year!

What an awesome shoe! The look is super sleek and classy, the back is very comfortable and bends down easily when stepped on for easy slip-on belaying, the cork insole is revolutionary though does need a little breaking into at first, and the fit is good (may fit a little small, so go up a size if you're close).

The Setter

The Setter shoes are actually very comfortable. Only drawback is the sizing fits small. I usually wear a size 12 in mens comfortably, but their size 12 was very tight since it is a Setter model so of course it fits small like a climbing shoe. So after i sized up and stopped wearing socks they fit perfectly. I love the style and how deep the tread is on the bottom.

Great shoes.

I use these as my everyday shoes and they are great. I bought them because they looked sturdy and comfortable. I was not disappointed. I would highly recommend these shoes.

All around great shoe

This shoe is super comfortable and it looks great. I am not a setter but that’s ok because this shoe is good for everything. I use it for everyday shoes, for belaying, just walking around my climbing gym. It has a lot of grip and is really sturdy. They fit pretty true to size. So Ill has really made a great shoe and I would highly recommend getting these.
