Description

• Three strap hook-n-loop closure system for convenience and control
• New seamless elastic tongue system reduces bulk and bind while being more breathable
• Tensioned rands for power and performance

New to the technical all-around category is a strap closure shoe we call the Luchador SC. Inspired by the inner wrestler in all of us who battle the medium of rock; it is built off a slightly cambered last with a semi-asymmetrical toe profile that allows for great control on small edges as well as thin cracks. Its new non-shifting tongue system also offers a sock-like fit.

UK Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

Good all-round comfortable shoes. They retail at £110 RRP but I have seen them considerably cheaper - so bargains are available. Not the shoe to totally push your limits, but for a comfortable semi-technical shoe, they do the job and they do it with 'out of the box' comfort. Personally I wasn't sure about the look of the silver red and blue design, but each to his own!

Squamish Climbing Magazine Gear Review no rating given just a review

Overall, the Luchador proved to be a pretty decent all-around shoe. The toe box really harnessed the power of the big toe when pushing on small edges and supported the big toe joint well. The heel cup seemed to stay in place on every move and could be snugged tighter with the top velcro strap. As a first impression, the colour scheme didn’t jump out at me as something I would want to be looking down at all the time, but after two sessions, I noticed myself not caring too much. Finally, the slightly downturned last was a pleasant alternative to the flat or aggressive downturn in other models. Bottom Line: I would recommend the Luchador SC to a friend as an all-around shoe that could be used from bouldering to sport. For those searching for a trad alternative, I would recommend the lace-up version of this shoe.

I thought this was a great shoe. Probably best for someone who is looking for a bit of an all-around piece of footwear that performs at a high level — particularly for climbers looking for a Velcro closure shoe that doesn’t break the bank.

I’ve been more than pleased, and even a little surprised with the Luchador SC’s. As long as the rubber holds strong, I think these are a solid value. In the day and age when shoes are so specialized the Luchador SC’s could be the only shoes in your pack, and would work for most types of climbing.
