Futura Women


My vote: None ( 5.8 avg )


A high performance women's climbing shoe that utilizes patented No-Edge™ Technology to excel at all modern climbing applications requiring technical footwork.

The patented No-Edge™ concept brings your foot closer to the rock for better edging performance, increased sensitivity and more homogeneous wear. An all-synthetic upper does not stretch out and the Fast Lacing System® cinches down with a hook and loop closure. The P3® platform gives you the downturned power needed for hard boulder problems. The overall feel of the shoe is lightweight, thin and sensitive for high-performance bouldering, sport climbing, technical trad climbing and gym climbing. These are little Ferraris for your feet that give you the ability to feel the texture of the rock climbing surface and stand on the tiniest edges.

• Patented No-Edge™ Technology from the Speedster gives you the maximum edging advantage right out of the box

• P3® technology lets you crank on overhangs

• Fast Lacing System® from the Solution gives you a snug, precise fit

• Excellent sensitivity for extremely technical projects

Fast Lacing System® Technology

Fast Lacing System®

A patented, highly adjustable lacing system which is quick to use and ensures the perfect fit.
No Edge Concept™ Technology

No Edge Concept™

The No-edge concept eliminates the traditional "edges" of the sole. This allows the foot to come into closer contact with the rock surface. Thus enhancing foot sensitivity and allowing optimum contact on the hold. With the No-edge construction, climbing becomes more fluid, instinctive and harmonious.
P3® Technology


Permanent Power Platform used in climbing shoes to maintain the downturned shape of the shoe for the life of the shoe.

Slip Lasted

The method of footwear construction in which the upper is sewn into a sock and then slipped onto the last. Slip lasted shoes normally do not have an insole and get their "stiffness" from the midsole which is located just above the outsole. Slip lasted rock climbing shoes tend to be sensitive like the Mythos and Cobra and less stiff than board lasted shoes.
VIBRAM® XS Grip2 Technology


Represents the natural evolution of VIBRAM® XS Grip, the new XS Grip2 delivers highly improved grip, while maintaining consistent performance in all temperatures. XS Grip 2 is the best solution in pure friction situations while remaining durable and even-wearing.

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 4/5

If this is your first shoe purchase, consider something with a bit more of an edge and perhaps a less aggressive shape. The Futura is a very particular shoe and may not be for everyone. That said, we loved how these shoes performed on steep terrain, especially on small, smeary footholds, like those often found on steep limestone. For aggressive edging, they were not our first choice, but for more nebulous footholds, they seemed to stick to anything. We will definitely be bringing these shoes on all of our upcoming sport climbing and bouldering trips.
