 The Magnet is not imported to the US. Sadly, this shoe is not available in the US and we have limited ability to track where else in the world it's sold (sorry!). When we know more info, we'll post it here.

The MAGNET is THE specialist for small slats and increases your attractive force when sport climbing or on multi-pitch routes. It is a performance-oriented climbing shoe that also offers outstanding comfort. The RC-TENSION midsole offers stability across the entire shoe. Once again, we specifically adapted the midsole design to the MAGNET to create the perfect balance of sensitivity and support when standing on small footholds. The last with moderate pre-tensioning combined with the sock-like upper design ensures that the MAGNET still remains comfortable even when worn for longer periods. The tongue is made from breathable knitted fabric comprising recycled yarn.

In conclusion a brilliant stiff shoe that is in its element outside especially on longer routes where the support it gives will reduce fatigue. Probably not the best choice indoors or for smeary slabs and if you’ve never climbed in a stiff shoe there may be a short period of adaptation – but stick with it as the benefits a worth it. I wore the Magnet in an 8.5 UK size (same as my Voltage Lace) and I usually wear a 9 UK in trainers. I’m also a very wide foot (2E) and these still proved comfortable.
