The Apache 5 is not imported to the US. Sadly, this shoe is not available in the US and we have limited ability to track where else in the world it's sold (sorry!). When we know more info, we'll post it here.
Climbers in Europe can buy the <a href="http://www.chausson-escalade.com/fr/apache-5_r_9.html" title="to the Andrea Boldrini Apache 5 shoe page" alt="to the Andrea Boldrini Apache 5 shoe page" target="_blank"> Apache 5</a> directly from Andrea Boldrini site.
New cutting edge technology for 2010. Based on the design of Apache Talisman and associated with the innovative systems present on the previous version, it belongs to the highest quality range compared to the current scratch closure shoes.
A padded elastane tongue gives comfort while allowing the foot to breathe. The different tensions of the Apache Talisman rubber paired with those of the X-Tension placed on the forefoot, reinforce support at the level of the metatarsus when toe-hooking.
The look is similar to the previous model with a hint of Apache Talisman, designed on pure and technical lines; a killer for demanding climbers.
Powerful heel tension, slightly stronger than the rest of the range due to new manufacturing technique.
Lateral and heel rubber made of a new formula including aluminium particles, thus improving support when stretching, lightness and consequently reduced thickness.
Sole only in F.C.S. version (“Full Contact Sole”) as it provides more technical capacities and increases its life due to a wider coverage surface; rubber: Formula Rubber Tractor (4.5 mm).

Changing for one or two sizes above won’t make a big difference. If you don’t want to have squashed toes, choose a model with a moderate pressure at the heel or an appropriate lacing to maintain the foot laterally.
