La Sportiva's brand new climbing shoe is designed for younger climbers with a comfortable, snug fit while being extremely easy to pull on thanks to the new velcro lacing system.
The innovative closure system guarantees a custom fit and offers tension regulation for the young, growing foot. This system allows you to use the same shoe even as the foot grows into the next size range, making this model truly "long life". The Stickit features a FriXion RS sole and rubber toe rand.
"We designed the Stickit to adjust to the growing foot of those monkey powered crimping machines we call kids. The lacing system allows the heel of the shoe to adjust so kids can get the best fit possible so you don't have to buy as many shoes. The lace that wraps around the heel can be easily shortened or lengthened with a simple knot and can be easily replaced if needed. Size generously for the most wear and don't forget to brush up on your spotting technique, because once your little one gets a taste of sticky rubber, there'll be no stopping them!"
Look out for a Stickit review and competition coming in May on UKC.
