Given that Black Diamond's Salt Lake City warehouse is five hours away from Indian Creek and a few miles from Little Cottonwood Canyon, it only makes sense for BD's footwear designers to come up with something like the Aspect Climbing Shoe--it even looks like the quartz monzonite that makes up Little Cottonwood. This shoe is simply meant to jam sandstone splitters and stand on slabby granite. BD meticulously chose the upper's leather from the finest European tanneries to ensure a plush feek in between a rock and another rock, and the leather wraps around the laces and breathable, knit tongue to reduce pinching while jamming. The stiff sole is composed of a uniquely molded NeoFriction Edge rubber that is long-lasting and reliably sticky for Yosemite's test-piece slab routes littered all over Little Cottonwood Canyon.
