  • Upper: Synthetic leather, lined
  • Rubber: 4mm Vibram XSV

The Blaze Pro could have been one of our favorite shoes. With a moderately stiff sole, good lacing system and snug toe box it’s a solid performer on technical face climbs. The last, however, still needs work. It’s too flat, and I never felt like my weight was entirely focused over my big toe and instep edge. The Blaze Pro is an excellent edging shoe but needs a few tweaks to be outstanding.

+ Great edging shoe.

– Last lacks power.
