Ap­proach Shoes

Gripped - - THE RACK -

If you’re go­ing on a road trip, you’ll be liv­ing in some sort of footwear. Even if you wear flip flops around camp, you’ll want a good pair of durable shoes to get you to the climb. Here are some of this year’s top ap­proach shoes. $159 The Crux is an ad­vanced tech­ni­cal ap­proach shoe that has such a sen­si­tive sole that it works great on steep fourth- and fifth-class ter­rain. These are made to go up be­tween loose foot place­ments on steep ap­proaches. They breathe well and stick to pretty much any­thing. If you’re plan­ning on cov­er­ing steep ground this year, the Crux are for you. $120 Bo­real has some of the most stylish ap­proach shoes on the mar­ket and the new Sendai Vent com­bine that great look with per­fect-for-light-ap­proach com­fort. These are light­weight com­pared to other shoes on this list and com­bine a f lex­i­ble up­per with sturdy sole. Great choice for sum­mer crag­ging ap­proaches.
