The Zone LV is a two-strap Velcro shoe that combines the award-winning comfort & breathability of the Momentum climbing shoes, with the high-performance last of the Shadows to create a shoe built for sending at the gym or the crag. The Zone’s upper consist of Engineered Knit Technology, which provides stretch where you need it, support where it matters & all around exceptional breathability-meaning you can go hard at the gym without worrying about your feet overheating.
The shoe’s last is downturned & based on an aggressive shape, making the Zone adept at pulling hard on steep rock or plastic. The Zone’s sticky Fuze rubber is molded–inspired by the way Black Diamond forge their carabiners–& not cut from one sheet of rubber. This is an engineered solution to optimize the shoe’s rubber & rands for consistency & comfort. The shoe’s vamp area also has printed rubber for extra friction while toe-hooking, & the medium-flex midsole adds a balance of sensitivity & power. For hard training sessions, this is the Zone you want to be in.
