“These are a true quiver-of-one rock shoe that delivers excellent performance in an easy-to-wear package,” one tester raved. “For anything but the hardest of routes, these shoes will shine.” Four testers wore the Stonelands on everything from granite cracks to limestone pockets, and from slabs to just more than vertical in California and Colorado, and they all gave high scores for the comfort-performance ratio. “This shoe would be my go-to for long routes of any grade, and as an ‘I only have room for one pair’ option,” said a tester who wore them for 10 days in Joshua Tree. Comfort is derived from a flat, moderately stiff sole, broad toe box with added vertical space for bent toe knuckles (if that’s what you prefer), and a supple synthetic upper—even the plump laces are easy on sore fingers. On the performance side, a tensioned heel rand delivers power to the toe, which has a chiseled asymmetric shape for solid edging and slipping into tight cracks. And the heel cup fit perfectly on all four testers’ feet—no baggy hollows. With practically no wear after three months of use, our conclusion is: “One of the best all-around shoes—ever.”
Don the Stonelands for anything and everything from long cracks to moderate bouldering up to V6 or V7. “The combination of comfortable fit with performance toe position and stiffness make the Stonelands a near-perfect all-around shoe.”
