Ocun Ozone Lady
Steep, technical face and sport, bouldering
Our tester came down a halfsize off her SS size— initially “unbearably tight,” but perfect after two days of wear.
Asymmetrical, downturned last; microfiber uppers; double strap closure; 3D Fit Middle midsole; 4mm Vibram XS Grip sole
“These shoes really shone on tiny edges, nubbins, and pockets,” said our tester— who said they outperformed her usual go- to technical shoe. She appreciated their excellent sensitivity and staying power, which let her use a bidoigt as securely as if she was grabbing it with her hand, as well as the locked- in heel. New to the US, the Ozones also come in Standard and Plus ( high-volume) versions, both of which also tested well.
