No other slipper even approximates the performance of the VIM.

Building upon a great last-from-the-past, the name of the game here is comfort that meets performance without sacrifice.  We decided to couple it with a stiff midsole and beefed up elastic closure system creating a powerful tool that eats everything in its way from overhanging rock to fiberglass slabs.

The RS rubber outsole delivers the maximal amount of friction possible, ensuring that every edge or smear holds when the send is on the line.

    First off I will start by saying that these shoes are amazing. Everything you can expect, but better if you wore the yellow bananas. Break in period was quick and these shoes do have a bit of stretch due to the simple design. THAT being said, save the paper in the box and get your butter stick out, because while comfortable once ON your feet, they take the patience of saints and V4+ mono strength to get that heel on without bagging. Remember the old Teams? The Blue ones? It’s that heel. But after about 2 sessions the slipper design did loosen up to make putting on and taking off pretty casual. My street size is 10.5 and i took the full size down to 9.5 ( As recommended) and would say that with the stretch of the shoe that this was the right choice. Great shoe guys!

    Mine are still very new and breaking in, but they are definitely on par with my other current favorites(Five Ten Aleon and Madrock Drone LV). I’ve used these on multiple angles of polished limestone as well as for forerunning and a bit of coaching so far and they’re definitely worth some consideration especially to round out a quiver of shoes. These are a PAIN to get on and off when brand new but they’re already becoming more manageable with use. For a slipper the heel cup is very good, but the toe cap rubber leaves a bit to be desired in terms of coverage. The highlight of the shoe is definitely the toe, as the tension in the shoe is very confidence inspiring.

    For reference, I wear a size 8.5USM in most street shoes, 8.5 in black 5.10 teams, and 7.5 in these and they feel like the correct fit for bouldering usage.
