This is the third iteration of the hugely popular Booster, and they have taken what a great shoe was and made it even better.
The Booster is built to be the tool of choice for sport climbing on steep terrain, where you need a shoe that is ultra-sensitive and precise.
It uses a one-third length Vibram® XS Grip 2 sole creates a flexible shoe that allows more natural movement through overhanging, thin routes.The midsole has got significantly larger, so it virtually matches the sole, making it stiffer for better stability on micro-edges. The middle of the midsole has been hollowed out to allow the sole to spread on smears.
It is built on a new asymmetrical, downturned last. The forefoot is the heel is slightly narrower and more sculpted, the forefoot is slightly wider than the older versions. The DTS rand enhances powerful movements through dynamic problems by concentrating the strength of the foot through an asymmetrical support ribbon; driving energy to the forefoot while the PAF system helps reduce over-compression of the toes and provides a snug-fitting heel.
