All-around shoes typically try to balance Comfort AND Performance – this elusive combination can be hard to find,  but each PG gear shop has a new offering to fit the bill.  Come in and try them  on today!

Want to try on a pair from a gym you don’t usually visit?  Let us know and we can transfer them down to your local gym!

geshidosc

Evolv Geshido SC comes to Sunnyvale!  This shoe is one from the Sharma Signature Series and is a high performance all-around shoe.  The “love bump” under the toes eliminates dead space for outstanding edging power, and thin crack jamming.  The lined upper is leather in the toe and sole and synthetic in the heel so expect a bit of stretch through the toes, but not much.
Cost: $145.  PG members take 10% off!

 

RA

 

Tenaya RA comes to Belmont!

Tenaya is a company based in southeast Spain, an area with a long history of shoe making.  While relatively new to the US market, the shoes have been used on various climbing projects all over the world and have received rave reviews.  The RA features Vibram XS Grip and these shoes excel in edging, precision, performance, and comfort.   The lined, synthetic upper means this shoe will not stretch.
Cost: $139.95.  PG members take 10% off!

 

 

stonelands vcs

Five Ten Stonelands VCS comes to SF! The Stonelands is build on an all-new last and features a leather upper with a terry cloth type liner, a stiffer sole (so your toes can fit flatter and more comfortably), and 5.10s Stealth C4 rubber.  You’ll be surprised by how comfortable the fit is right out of the box, and then amazed and their great edging and smearing abilities even with their comfortable fit.

Cost $140.  PG members take 10% off!

 

Tips for trying on shoes:

  • Climbing shoes should fit snug, but you also don’t want to be blinded by pain – you can’t climb well if your feet hurt!
  • There is no “best shoe” there is only the shoe that’s best for you.  Try on many different vendors and models to see what fits your foot the best.
  • The best way to know you are in the right size is to try edging on a hold or 2.  When you edge in the shoes, your foot should feel totally stable – you should not feel like your foot is slipping inside the shoe.
  • If the shoe is going to stretch, err on the snugger side, but not so snug that they are too painful to wear right out of the box.
  • Still have questions?  Come visit our gear shop or email Carolyn@planetgranite.com

Remember we’re happy to transfer a shoe to another location if we don’t carry it at your local one!
