Nice choice!

 The Apache 5 is not imported to the US. Sadly, this shoe is not available in the US and we have limited ability to track where else in the world it's sold (sorry!). When we know more info, we'll post it here.

Apache 5


My vote: None ( 5 avg )


New version of the Apache 5, designed on a more plunging shape for more precision and more traction force on the slopes. Combined with the innovative systems present on the previous version, it ranks higher than the current scratch slippers. A padded elastane tongue brings comfort while allowing breathability of the foot. The different tensions of the A.Talisman gums coupled with those of the X-tension placed on the dorsal part, accentuate the support at the level of the metatarsals during the peak loads. Powerful heel tension. Lateral rubber and heel, with new formula including aluminum particles, thus improving resistance to elongation, lightness and thus making it possible to reduce the thickness. Sole in FCS version (without edge) offering much more technical capacity and longevity, thanks to its larger surface area, Formula Rubber Tractor (4.5mm). A real weapon for demanding climbers.

Sizing Information European sizes 32-48, including half sizes

Changing for one or two sizes above won’t make a big difference. If you don’t want to have squashed toes, choose a model with a moderate pressure at the heel or an appropriate lacing to maintain the foot laterally.
Even with a wider slipper, the heel blocking tension will anyway strain the foot to compression at the tip. The slipper having an unbalanced volume, the big toe will consequently bear the most of the load.
