Silex Velcro



My vote: None ( 3.5 avg )


With updates for 2016, the new Silex is now better than ever. Silex is a superbly comfortable and supportive shoe, perfect for long days on the rock or marathon training sessions.

A high-quality split leather upper with the PU Air Net™ padded lining provides superior comfort, and is securely fastened with 3 straps for a highly adjustable fit. A stiff midsole offers plenty of support to prevent your foot tiring on smaller holds, and our sticky and durable FS Quattro™ rubber ensures long lasting high friction performance.

The medium tension heel securely holds the foot without any pressure points, and an EVA anti-shock layer under the heel provides extra cushioning. Silex is ideal for long routes, all-day crag sessions and visits to the local wall.
