CaVa Runout - Climbing Shoe Review


CaVa Runout Climbing Shoe$80

  • Steep rock: 1 Star
  • Face climbing: 2 Star
  • Long routes: 4.5 Star
  • Upper: Leather, lined
  • Rubber: 5mm Stealth Black Magic

It's good to see a shoe that's unashamedly trad. With laces that run to the tip of the toe, stout rands, a rounded toe box and a stiff, flat sole, the CaVa Runout could have been teleported from the 1980s. Fashionable? No. Practical? You bet! We subtracted half a star from the Runout's long-route rating because some climbers might want higher performance. However, this is a great first shoe for novice climbers who spend more time outdoors than in the gym, and a good choice for anyone tackling rough, adventurous terrain. At $80, it sports a 1980s price tag, too.

+Solid, affordable multi-pitch shoe.
