Gravity | The approach shoe for men and women climbers
For climbers they are indispensable, for other mountain enthusiasts the concept is not necessarily so clear. “Approach shoes” are specially designed to enable climbers to reach the start of a climb or a via ferrata.
It’s all about having lightweight footwear which can guarantee excellent grip on the highly technical terrain a climber is likely to encounter on the walk in to a climb, such as slick slabs, uneven boulders or scree.
Approach shoes meet the specific needs of climbers need on the walk in: a soft, super grippy sole to tackle technical terrain safely, combined with a rugged upper to withstand scuffs.
Gravity combines all this and more to guarantee comfort, safety, durability and outstanding precision. Among its many technical strengths, it features a dual-density Vibram® sole unit, and our Ekso technology: an ‘exoskeleton’ injected onto the exterior surface to improve torsional rigidity, thus enhancing the precision of foot placement.
The Gravity women’s version also incorporates our Lady Last technology: a specially engineered last designed to more accurately hug the anatomy of the female foot, providing more room around the toes and a slightly snugger fit around the heel and ankle.
