Red Chilli Corona VCR

Red Chilli Corona VCR, 41 kb
Sharpened up, more stylish and with a touch more bite, the Corona's tried and tested fit and function are only improved by a slick re-make for this distinctive and hardcore 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.
