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

P3®

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 5/5

It's an unlined, slip lasted shoe with a soft microfiber upper, and a nice leather heel pocket, surrounded by rubber, that is great for heel hooking. The Maverink has La Sportiva's proprietary No-Edge technology that gets the toe closer to the rock, letting you use your climbing shoes almost like a second skin, and the XS Grip 2 rubber has excellent friction for sticking to small holds. Much of the forefoot was left free of seams and overlays because the Maverink comes with two markers so they can be fully personalized to match the style of the climber.

Epic TV Gear Review no rating given just a review

Although these are a great training shoe for indoor bouldering, board climbing or routes, I got a lot more from them in an outdoor bouldering scenario than originally expected. You can’t heel hook in them if it’s a critical heel hook, but there are plenty of problems that don’t have heel hooks. They’re so comfortable that you can wear them at the crag for several hours at a time (useful if you’re in lazy boulderer mode), and they work well on friction-y types of rock. Overall, I’d totally recommend them for training indoors. They’ve saved me from wrecking my more expensive shoes but I can’t imagine I’ll be using them on the Limestone any time soon!
