Lowa Rocket Lace

Climbing - - ESSENTIALS - $ 150, LOWABOOTS.COM

BUILT FOR

Per­for­mance all-around climb­ing, boul­der­ing, sport

FIT

The shoes have a wider toe­box, so are good for high-vol­ume feet. Our tester wore 1.5 sizes down from his SS size.

CON­STRUC­TION

Semi- sym­met­ri­cal, mildly down­turned last; split- grain leather up­per; lace- up clo­sure; sling­shot rand; semi- stiff 1.2mm mi­crofiber mid­sole; 5mm XS Grip sole

CON­CLU­SION

Our tester ap­pre­ci­ated the per­for­mance-com­fort mix, not­ing that the shoe was “pretty damn comfy” for an ag­gres­sive model—the am­ple toe­box pre­vented lat­eral squish­ing. He gave the Rocket high marks for jessery, thanks largely to the ver­sa­tile lac­ing sys­tem; it edged well, too, and was great on long pitches.
