Engineered to provide laser precision on routes and boulder problems that require absolute focus, this dual-Velcro, high-performance shoe has a slightly downturned last for edging prowess on steeper terrain. With the highest grade European leather upper and Black Diamond's Engineered Knit Technology tongue, the Focus provides breathability and durability. With printed high friction rubber on the vamp area of the shoe—this innovative process minimizes bulk while maximizing dexterity and grip for toe-hooking. The sole of the Focus is BD's stiff, durable rubber that’s molded—inspired by the way they forge their carabiners—and not cut from one sheet of rubber. This is engineered solution optimizes the shoe’s rubber and rands for weight, consistency and comfort. The Focus also features medial and lateral stabilizer rands to increase precision by keeping your foot from rolling when pressure is applied to the outside or inside edges.
