COMPETITION: WINNERS - Win 1 of 3 pairs of Red Chili climbing shoes!

When Red Chili founders Stefan Glowacz and Uwe Hofstädter topped out on El Capitan back in 1995, they had an idea. An idea for a climbing shoe that fitted so perfectly and was so comfortable that even after 20 hard pitches or a days bouldering, nothing would hurt and climbing would still be as fun as when you had started out. And so the idea of Red Chili was born.
