La Sportiva Gripit Kid's Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Gripit kid's climbing shoe that allows childrens' feet to grow and adapt to climbing in the most healthy way possible.
The Gripit uses a flat last and soft sole that are non-aggressive to allow for a natural, comfortable, and non-painful foot position. No-Edge® Technology, however, unique to La Sportiva, makes the shoe highly sensitive so that kids can actually feel the rock, promoting sensory development to progress as a better, more adaptable climber. It also distributes the foot's pressure more uniformly across the shoe, which combined with the Zero-Press™ last removes harmful pressure points that could adversely affect a child's growing foot, creating problems later in their climbing career. Other features include a Fast Lacing System® which is easy to use - even for kids - with a velcro tab just needing to be pulled to both tighten the laces of the shoe as well as the elastic band of the heel cup.
Unlined suede leather will stretch up to a full size as your kid's feet grow, so this shoe will last as long as possible!

No-Edge® Technology replaces the traditional edge of a climbing shoe with rounded rubber. Because it contours the shape of the toes, it minimises any dead space between the toes and the rubber, resulting in much higher sensitivity and a more homogenous push against the rock.
A last that eliminates pressure points in the growth plate area of the foot preventing damage to the metatarsals essential for growth and minimising irregularities later in life.
