Arpia V


no ratings


The Arpia V is a versatile shoe suited for both indoor and outdoor climbing. Made with a soft supple upper and full sticky rubber coverage over the toes, the spot can be sized tightly for performance but remains comfortable. The slightly downturned and slightly asymmetrical shape offers an immediate and natural fit. The Arpia V also features double Velcro straps for quick and easy closure.

  • Soft Touch Microfiber, a super supple microfiber and soft touch upper provides instant comfort and increases sensitivity
  • Our stickiest rubber covers large portion of the toe box to high friction and extra comfort
  • Vibram® XS Grip2 outsole provides great combination of support and friction
  • Dual opposing Velcro straps (wider strap on top) provide a large secure closure while a stretchy, breathable tongue increases comfort and fit
  • TA-Tension provides the benefits of a dynamic tension system without adding an extra layer under the key toe tip positions
