A revolutionary shoe that offers stability for standing on small edges and yet has enough flex for smearing.
The secret of this shoe lies in its refined layers of technology. Starting with an intricately-stitched 3 panel Eco Leather upper with air holes for long term wear and comfort. A full-length Janus 1.1mm plastic insert and IPC-Tension active randing system gives integral support to the foot while under pressure on small holds and maintains flex for smearing while Combination lace system spreads pressure evenly across the forefoot.
Built on a master-crafted FY last, the Maestro WMN has a straight and slightly downturned shape with a medium-to-low angled toe box that allows the Maestro to be fitted with a semi knuckled-up or flatter toe position depending on what you're after. All this sits on a 4mm Vibram XS Edge full length sole combined with 2mm XS Grip 2 heel underlay.
A combination of high tech materials and decades of experience has produced a shoe that excels in the vertical world.

Good edging shoesI bought these in a Euro 38, which is my street size. Out of the box the colour and quality are fantastic. They performed well bouldering and lead climbing indoor, although I had to switch to softer shoes to stand on volumes on slab. These shoes are very stiff with a solid toe which makes them good for edging. They are not trad climbing comfort shoes due to the asymmetrical toe, but they perform well on small foot holds. Pros – comfortable, stiff, good rubber, lovely colour, easy adjustment due to laces. Cons – The eco leather does not breathe well, leading to very sweaty feet, the stiff sole makes smearing difficult, and the asymmetry makes foot jams uncomfortable. Good for – edging, slab with small foot holds, heel hooks, and the stiff sole gives good support to toes. Bad for – jamming, smearing, toe hooks.
