Our bestselling model gets even better! With a host of upgrades the all new second generation Joker  continues to offer climbers the very best combination of comfort, performance and value available in a single shoe.

For 2017 we have made improvements to every aspect of Joker to further cement its position as the market leading comfort model. The Joker features a new super-comfortable semi-asymmetric last with slimmer fitting heel and low tension rand. An upper of high quality split leather and synthetic microfibre with a quick and simple strap closure is combined with a PU Air Net lining for exceptional comfort and a fresh new look.

A newly developed Zenith Quattro outsole now includes a specially shaped heel cavity filled with shock absorbing EVA for improved under foot cushioning. The medium stiffness midsole paired with the sticky and durable Zenith Quattro rubber provides the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction. Joker is superbly versatile. Size normally for all-day comfort on long routes and extended sessions; size down for higher performance.
