Although only available in the UK for a short amount of time, Edelrid rock shoes, in particular the Typhoon, are starting to gather momentum picking up accolades from a number of satisfied climbers. The Typhoon is an aggressively cambered, performance rock shoe geared towards high-end climbers. The sole makes use of Edelrid's own proprietary E-Grip rubber compound, which holds its own against better-known compounds to deliver superb all-round grip.

The heel strap is designed to support the transmission of power to the toe box and in particular to the big toe, making it easy to maintain a hold with exceptional sensitivity. The high-tension heel cup compliments this by allowing for the easy execution of even complex heel hooks.
The uppers are constructed from soft natural leather with a synthetic Lorica toe box ensuring comfort and a long lifespan, with a neoprene tongue and opposing pull straps that make the Typhoon feel like a second skin.
With an RRP of £75 - £80 the competitive price belies the high-performance quality inherent in the design. To learn more about the Typhoon visit premier retailers like Bananafingers or Rock + Run:
