Nago Sportiva Climbing Shoes…They Rock.

Via on Feb 14, 2009

La Sportiva Climbing Shoe

If I told you that most climbing shoes are made by malnourished children in oppressively hot, poorly-lit Chinese dungeons, I wouldn’t be so far from the truth as one might hope. So get these new Nagos—they’re Italian-made, certified Fair Labor, 8.29 ounces, stylish.

Ideal for beginners, they’re a solid overall all-around climbing shoe. A great pick for gyms looking to stock a house shoe.

    To my understanding, FiveTen climbing shoes are all vegan (i.e. compassionate) and Evolv offers many vegan climbing shoes. Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

  2. We're looking to review and name 5 favorite climbing and bouldering shoes. What are your faves we should look at? Email us at editorial @ elephantjournal .com

  3. Ballerina radical performance full of feeling. Designed for large tilt and power, the versatility of this ballerina you can still load a little “scratch” to rock. Moreover, unlike most common leather ballerinas, the Hulk does not stretch and retains its accuracy with use.
