Triop Rap, $120

  • Steep rock: 2 Star
  • Face climbing: 3 Star
  • Long routes: 1 Star
  • Upper: Leather, unlined
  • Rubber: 4mm Cling 2000

This shoe combines laces and an elastic tongue for a snug and surprisingly comfortable fit. It’s a decent all-around performer, stiff enough to edge, soft enough to smear, and a few years ago would have scored higher marks for performance. Today, however, its design and last seem dated. The flat-soled last and trim toe work great in thin cracks, but otherwise this shoe does little to enhance the power of your foot.

+ Excellent thin-crack shoe.

– Expensive. Dated
