Our go-to shoe for any climbing terrain. The UP Rise VCS features a full RH rubber sole for the perfect balance of friction and durability that excels both when edging and smearing. The Velcro closure system allows you to dial in the perfectly tensioned fit and easy on/off comfort. The addition of the VD rubber toe patch gives extra friction and performance for toe hooks and extra protection over your toes for crack climbing.

  1. Joshua Muller

    I went 1/2 a size smaller than my US street shoe size and its an ideal fit especially after they stretch.
    I’m really pleased with the stiffness, I was considering a pair of Anasazi Pros for a while but I’m glad I got these instead as the quality of the straps and materials is really impressive.

    My local shop talked me into trying them. They fit true to size and we’re great right out of the box. Weather you climbing trad or sport you are not going to go wrong.

    Had them for 4 months now, really pleased. I bought them right about street shoe size, fit was just a hair tight out of the box, but they stretch just enough that now they’re quite comfortable; I can wear them for hours and be fine. Edging has been solid, they’re maybe on the stiff side of medium – I can still feel holds, not super sensitive but you get a decent a decent amount of support on small edges. They’re moderately aggressive. The toe is generally slim enough to fit into small pockets and cracks. Heel and toe hooking are fine for the style, if you’re really worried about that probably need to go much more aggressive. Build quality has been solid, they’re surprisingly light.

    Overall, really pleased I sought them out. They’ve become my go-to shoe.

    The UP Rise VCS has become my go to all rounder shoe. This shoe can do it all. Great fit right out of the box and a quality build. Lots of edging power, smears really well and strong heel and toe hooks with that amazingly sticky UP RH rubber.

    I wear a size 13 and bought said size in these. Great friction on the wall. Shoes were tight at first (as they should be) but have molded to my foot and now feel perfect. I even experimented with another brand in a slightly bigger size but kept slipping off the wall. These are of fantastic quality and my go-to climbing shoes for the foreseeable future.
