/ Smearing shoes help
Previously have had instinct slippers which were great but the xs rubber was super soft.
I also fit sportiva so am wondering about the speedster or futuras?
Any advice on what breaks into a nice soft shoe but that also has top rubber
In response to the original poster, a lot of people recommend Anasazi VCS or Verdes for grit smearing.
If you go with La Sportivas, a lot of the models use XS Grip2 rubber, which is the same rubber as the Instinct Slipper.
