Why We Like The UnParallel Flagship Shoe

From plastic to rock, UnParallel's Flagship Shoe helps us conquer the overhang. The aggressive profile and stiff midsole give us power and bite on micro feet, while the split sole enhances feel and offers reliable smears once we pull out onto the face. With a high-friction rubber toe cap and a softer heel rubber, this shoe keeps our hooks solid for steady tension while horizontal.

Literally cheating, Aid Shoe

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Size Bought:

This shoe is unreal for indoor climbing or soft sandstone type rock. The RS rubber should legitimately be banned from competition. It's like super gluing your foot to volumes. Not a beginner shoe, very aggressive sizing, I went half size down and my toes go numb after a few minutes but the rubber is soft and I expect it to mold to my foot in another session or two. It's already more comfortable than when I got it. If you have downsized other shoes by multiple sizes like LaSpo, this is not the shoe to go 3 sizes down on. My TN Pro from Unparallel is street size and fits almost perfectly but a little more comfortable, half size down on Flagship feels just right for aggressive fit.

Interesting Combination Of Features

I got curious about these shoes after seeing more and more people Bouldering in them at my local gym; and hearing the Staff there rave about them. Be forewarned: The entrance to these shoes is SMALL, and could trick you into thinking you need to size up. Better to force your way in and then decide if you have on the correct size. I think you will notice 3 separate features of these shows: First, the forefoot offers nice concavity, sending force over to your big toe. And the forefoot is pretty rigid, offering you better edging than you might have expected. Kind of like the Skwama; but the Flagship seems a bit more rigid up front, IMO. Second, the midfoot is pretty flexible = a surprise behind such a stable forefoot. Some people might not like how flexible this shoe is in the middle; other people might find this feature especially attractive. Your option! And finally, the heel is quite robust. I do not have these super-tight, so the heel slid a micro-cm, then LOCKED onto my heel. If you get them in a "performance" fit, you need not worry about your heel hooks. My other shoes are all super stiff, so these a a departure for me. But I have to tell you, they are a delight to climb and Boulder in, and perform above what I/you might expect before actually slipping into them. With other shoes now North of $200, the price point of these is also a pleasant respite.
