From 6pm on Wednesday 27th of Feb, Neal from Lyon, the UK distributor for La Sportiva will be here to demo the their technical range of climbing shoes, including the new Futura with No-Edge technology.
The radical design of the Futura increases their sensitivity and brings your toe closer to the rock, providing amazing ‘edging’ performance. The idea is that by removing the traditional hard square edges from a the sole, a much more even pressure is applied to your toes, allowing you to feel exactly what is going on through the shoe. Think about it, how often does your toe pop off a hold when you thought it was solid? With the equal pressure distribution and sensitivity of a No-Edge shoe this could be a thing of the past. You can read loads more about it on La Sportiva’s website here.
Check out the video explaining some of the neat features and ideas behind the Futura.
Sounds interesting hey? Head down on Wednesday 27th to find out if this is the shoe you’ve been waiting for your whole life!
Lyon Equipment have kindly offered to run a free raffle on the night, with everyone who tries a pair of shoes being entered and the winner winning a pair of La Sportivas to take home. They’re also bringing some other prizes for us to dish out on the night, so watch this space for what competitions we’ll be running!
