Drawing on our decades of climbing, running, training and general experience in the mountains, we continue to develop and expand this collection of core products directly made by or designed and sourced by Rock + Run.
Mens approach shoes are a hybrid footwear which combine hiking/walking boots and rock climbing shoes. An approach shoe that's fitted correctly can be worn for either hiking or scrambling, and in some cases for low grade climbing.
Approach shoes generally have a sole made from the same kind of sticky rubber you find on climbing shoes, and this helps you to stick to the rock when scrambling or climbing. They are usually the perfect footwear for most approaches to crags, where the terrain can be rocky, slippery or uneven. Climbers generally prefer to wear them over hiking boots, as approach shoes are lighter, more versatile and more breathable.
