Climbing Shoe Style:
Hook & Loop
• The Acro was developed with comfortable performance in mind. You can wear the shoe longer without pain than many of its competitors.
• The Acro's heel was recently redesigned for a more comfortable fit. No more discomfort on the Achilles.
• Copious amounts of toe rubber allow you to toe hook for days and actually feel what you are toeing in on.
• Ask a resoler which brand of shoes they like to resole the most, we are pretty confident Butora will be at the top of the list. Their shoes are very well made, so you can resole them, get years out of each pair, and put that money saved towards your next climbing trip.
• The build quality of all Butora shoes, including the Acro, means you'll have that down-turned performance long into the life of the shoe, keeping you stuck to those steep routes and boulders.
