Red Chilli Corona VCR
Performance is the key to this shoe and featuring a sharp low-profile toe, a killer slingshot heel and bonus toe rubber for super-tech hooking, it's obvious that it performs! For 2010 the midsole is tweaked to give even more sensitivity and feedback while our double VCR straps add in easy 'on and offs' between boulder sends, redpoints, or on belay. A smart new graphic simply enhances this great package.
A proven product, the Corona VCR wears with a fit, function and performance that really works.

Jon has climbed extensively throughout the UK, Europe and in Kyrgyzstan. His recent new route in Cwm Idwal, The Devil's Appendage (VII,7) has become an instant classic, but may not form again for several decades!
He climbs trad, sport, boulders, ice, mixed and plastic in equal measure and he even has an electronic timer next to his campus board.
