    Zone Climbing Shoe

    The Zone Climbing Shoe is one of Black Diamond's aggressive, softer options for face climbing steep or dead vertical routes. Its moderate downturn works with a soft flex to provide precision on technical lines, as well as the ability to grip steeper terrain better. Black Diamond's Fuse rubber is molded onto the shoe—as opposed to cutting rubber from a sheet—to reduce peeling off overtime. Not just engineered for superior grip on overhangs, the Zone also promotes exceptional breathability with Black Diamond's Engineered Knit Technology that also stretches in key areas to ensure a snug fit. The upper is secured with two beefy hook-and-loop straps, one of which is wider for better security.

    Very stiff and agressive

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The description is definitely right in saying that they are BD's aggressive shoe. I found them very stiff, and had to size up from what I wear in the Momentums. If I were more agressive on boulders and short sport walls, I'd definitely put more time in on these shoes, but the truth is they are just too much for me. Definitely a goodshoe for advanced climbers looking to up their game.

    Pros:
    Aggressive downturn
    Sharp Edge
    Easy to take off quickly

    Cons;
    Very stiff when fresh, hard to get good wall feel

    Stiff and Sensitive

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    When these dropped on the BD site I was stoked out of my mind! I used the Momentum's and the Aspects before so I was ready for whatever they threw at me next. Boy was it a curve-ball. These things are stiff! I was walking on the pads on the sides of my feet. I could edge really well and feel whatever I was trying to project with ease, but I had to take them off after each problem. Another thing I should mention is the dead space. I'm not against velcro but if you're going to do it, please make it adjustable for a wide range. I put these on and cinched them down as best as I could but there was still dead space around my heel, and the top of my foot. It needs a tad more work but then these will be excellent!
