Additional information

Shoe shape
Arch shape, asymmetrical and significant tension in the heel (moderate level). This shape provides a high level of precision and power during your movements and optimises contact on small holds. Please note: this shape, suited to highly technical climbing, may reduce foot comfort slightly (especially on Greek-shaped feet). This is why we have chosen a moderate level to combine comfort and performance.
Intermediary and exterior XS GRIP Vibram® rubber XS Grip is a soft rubber with a very good grip for good grip sensations, especially on flat or rounded holds.
breathable lorica® synthetic leather (flexible and precise) in forefoot areas, leather upper. Fastens with 2 rip-tabs.
If you are a climber working to improve your skills, you can buy them tighter (1/2 -1 size below normal, for example), but it's important they don't hurt, so that your foot can develop mobility, proprioception, and strength. If you are an advanced climber, we suggest you take the time to try different sizes (1 to 2 sizes below normal) to find the best compromise between comfort and compression for more force when pushing off.
Our 1st tip is to never machine-wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical stress could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in direct sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.
Did you know? The better a rubber’s grip, the more it wears out, especially in indoor climbing. This is why we have chosen to work with a specialist recognised in the market since 1937, Vibram, and have carefully selected the rubber offering the best balance between durability and grip. Our tests show that on average, rubber wears away in six months, on the front and/or top of the shoes. This can be even quicker, depending on how you place your feet. "
Is your sole worn out? Do not throw away your shoe. It would be a shame ecologically and economically speaking. Our Decathlon workshops offer a resoling service that is among the best on the market. Your sole changed, you can climb once again with the shoe already moulded to your feet. Warning: as soon as you see synthetic leather through the rubber, you should stop using it and get the sole repaired. If you pierce the synthetic leather, resoling will not be possible.

    Good value, but lose shape and become soft

    I wear an 8.5 street size and bought these in an 8 as an upgrade on the rock+ shoes. originally they gave me more precision and i could stand on little edges and chips but they have since gone quite soft and lost downturn. now they are good for smearing on grit and volumes in gym, but i need some stiffer shoes so i don’t break my toes on little edges. also they lost their shape and downturn very quickly.

    Comparable performance to sportiva Miura

    I bought a pair 7 months ago and love the performance, they run on the narrow side and it a little painful but the performance is amazing, I have my super expensive sportiva Miura XX and can say that some time I feel better with the vertika. The only problem is lack of durability, the construction is far war worse than any sportiva shoes, but the difference in price worth it!!

    Vertika Shoes

    I always used La Sportiva Miura VS, but I didn't want to spend so much money for a pair of shoes to use it in the climbing gym. I discovered a really really good shoe so similar to the Miura VS. The Vertika are really confortable, precise and with a really good price. Can't wait to try it outdoor.
