Why We Like The Dankyu Pro x Katiyo Approach Shoe

In collaboration with a renowned route setter and artist, The North Face introduces the Dankyu Pro x Katiyo Approach Shoe. This technical pair provides street style and long-wear comfort that can still smear and hook with the best of 'em. Our feet breathe and flex easy behind the perforated suede, while the adjustable instep strap gives us a precise fit for testing sets.

Thoughtful Design

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

If you are a Setter working long hours, this shoe will be right up your alley! It wears like a street shoe and the sole of the forefoot curves us slightly (making it more geared towards being active/multi-us as opposed to a stiff and flat climbing rubber front) I appreciate the comfort that comes with that, though that is the one aspect that could be improved. I believe the rubber used could be slightly more rigid and sticky at the toe. This would allow setters to do more climbing moves in these shoes (with a more accurate feel) without having to switch shoes. The colors are eye-catching and a conversation piece. The leather on the suede is nice and durable, the added rubber for toe hookiing and heel hooking is a thoughtful and needed touch, and the velcro strap is brilliant in taking the fit from 'casual-feeling' to being more snug for climbing moves. There's even a thoughtful little note from Tonde inside the box and additional pink laces.~ Fit: The sizing fits true to size. (I wear 9 for an aggresive hiking shoe and this fits the same) The shoe is maybe slightly narrow at the ball of the foot, if you have wider feet like mine.

Particular shoe for a particular need

I've used it several times

I have been enjoying my pair of these shoes a lot so far. The major complaint I heard was that the sizing was tight, but like a climbing shoe, that's entirely the point. This shoe was specifically designed for people who are setting routes in a gym or doing similar work. They are supposed to fit tight and be as close to a climbing shoe as a sneaker can get, and they are right on the money here. Im a 10.5 and these fit snuggly without feeling overly constrictive. Comfortable and stylish enough to wear out after work. No complaints on these bad boys so far
