The Andrea Boldrini Pantera is a hybrid slipper/velcro shoe built on the same construction as the Apache 5 and Apache Talisman, giving it a moderate downturn. The Pantera has high pre tension, slight assymetry and has great pulling power on small edges and overhanging routes. The Full Contact sole design maintains the rand rubber whilst smearing, whilst keeping your toe as close to the rock as possible for greater sensitivity. The elastic slipper tongue has added velcro to maintain the heel for heel hoking performance.
The Upper is made from microfibre which maintains it's shape pretty well, so don't expect them to stretch too much. Whilst these are a performance shoe, they are surprisingly comfortable making them a pretty great all round shoe.
