CON­CLU­SION

These Fred Nicole–de­signed shoes of­fer re­fine­ments our tester found ex­cep­tional. “These shoes are per­fect for boul­der­ing and steep sport,” he said af­ter pun­ish­ing them in RMNP. The Aleon shone es­pe­cially for heel- and toe- hook­ing, with min­i­mal dead air in the new, laser-etched heel.
