The Shadow is Black Diamond's most aggressive climbing shoe for steep sport routes and hard bouldering, and the Shadow LV Climbing Shoe has a lower volume to accommodate narrower feet more comfortably. Its rubber sole is printed and molded to the upper—instead of cut to fit into shape—for longer lasting durability that prevents peeling overtime. The rubber extends nearly over the entire stretch-resistant upper for effective toe hooking. Everything that isn't rubber is Black Diamond's Engineered Knit Technology for enhanced breathability. The soft midsole helps you feel the sharpest jibs on microscopic footholds.
