Butora built the Tight Fit Altura Climbing Shoe for long days on big walls where you'll come across every style of climbing except maybe overhanging pitches. Its low asymmetry and flat profile assure comfort when you're jamming, smearing, and edging all day. The upper boasts a hydrovelour split leather that stretches to conform to your foot shape, while the odor-resistant organic hemp lining reduces stretching so you don't have a baggy pair of boots by the time your reach the summit. Just like any crack climbing shoe, the Altura has a padded tongue and mesh lining to protect your forefoot from jagged rocks inside the crack. The moisture-wicking split leather footbed feels particularly wonderful in warmer weather, and the midsole offers moderate stiffness so you can edge, smear, and slab up tricky sections with supportive stability. The Butora rubber sole has a sharp edge for the occasional face move, and it's soft enough for you to get enough contact on slabs.
