Black Diamond Session Shoe - Women's



Session Shoe

The Session Shoe is the most casual approach shoe from Black Diamond, designed for climbers commuting from climbing gyms to crags, and maybe stopping at a cafe along the way. Black Diamond's engineered knit upper feels both breathable and durable to keep comfy on warm trails, and the elastic heel maintains a snug fit that you can collapse to wear as a slip-on in between redpoint attempts. The lining is a sock-like bootie built to accommodate socks, or not. Underfoot, Black Diamond's BlackLabel rubber gives street-styled stickiness, and EVA cushions on trails and sidewalks alike.

Absolutely love these shoes. I ordered them back in March for a little hiking trip in the Ozark mountains. I don't think I have taken them off since. Love the grip when bouldering in the beginning areas. Must have shoes, I can wear them all day long!

Love these!

These are so light and the slip on design is SO nice; great to quickly throw on to take out my dog or take out the trash. I really love that I can wear them without socks. They grip really well and fit true to size; very happy with this purchase! UPDATE ABOUT A MONTH LATER: Have become my second favorite shoes to my Birkenstocks. Great for errands, camping, short hikes/approaches to climb/slipping on at the crag, walking the dog, working out. Really love these and really happy with my purchase.

Cute, but not comfy

I returned this product before using it
True to size

I was so stoked about these approach shoes and tried hard to love them because they aren't bulky and dorky looking like most approach shoes, but these just aren't comfortable. There is a large seam around the ankle area that digs right into the bone on the inner side of my foot so after wearing them around the house, I sent them back. They do fit true to size though.
