Taking on the bouldering problem Love Cats for a first date is a promising start - keep the approach light with the versatile Splice. The shoe's suede leather/canvas upper provides moderate protection while scrambling. Dri-Lex ventilated air mesh collar and tongue lining wicks moisture. Traditional lacing for comfort during descents and off-the-rock wear. Self-centering tongue keeps out debris, stays put and wraps the foot. Rubber toe bumper and heel provide durable protection. Recycled EVA anatomical footbed with Aegis Microbe Shield and a recycled, dual-density, die-cut EVA midsole lend support underfoot. Patagonia extra-sticky rubber sole provides excellent grip and durability on varied surfaces.
