Favorite Climbing Shoe: The Blackwing. No other shoe on the market comes even close to the precision and reliability of the Blackwing. When I know that a foot pick would mean failure, I put on the Blackwing and know that failure is not an option. Built on the same last as the Dragon, but with a velcro closure. Makes it easy to pull on and off during a bouldering session.
Favorite Everyday shoe: Five Tennies! Comfortable, casual, and always sticky.
