Here's the thing about the Masai: You could just as easily spy this shoe at your local Front Range climbing gym as you could on the feet of a sponsored climber tearing through their projects. And, amazingly, those projects could range from technnical sport routes to slabby boulder problems to multipitch trad routes. The Masai stands apart because of its exceptional performance in a wide variety of climbing disciplines.

The Masai's moderately downturned toe and asymmetrical shape serve up phenomenal edging performance, especially on micro-edges and tiny pockets. This is a shoe custom built for technical, overhanging sport routes. With a slightly stiffer midsole and that precise toe box, however, the Masai is one of the premier performance trad shoes on the market today. Whether you're hunting endless Indian Creek splitters or smeary and finicky routes in Eldorado Canyon, the Masai serves up balanced and reliable performance.

Performance aside, the Masai offers a vegan-friendly and cotton-lined upper with almost zero break-in time and minimal stretch. The full lace closure system adapts to a wide variety of foot widths while also allowing precision lacing, depending on the route your climbing.
