Unparallel Up Lace LV

Size: UK 3

The Unparallel Up Lace LV is the lower volume version of the all-day wearing climbing shoe with lots of rubber, ideal for face climbing, crack climbs and multi-pitching.

Unlike anything you've tried before, the Unparallel Up Lace LV is a uniquely put together climbing shoe, with perhaps the best comparison saying it is something of mix between the La Sportiva Miura and Five Ten Anasazi Pink. Suited to those with lower volume feet, the speed-lacing system allows you to dial in the perfect fit whilst also giving you the option to quickly ditch the shoes when your feet need a rest on that tenth pitch. Ribbed laces improve hold and minimise the risk the shoes coming undone.The UP Lace comes with generous amounts of protective randing rubber, making it perfect forcrack climbing - adding overall friction and foot protection.

On the base of the shoe is a full length Unparallel RH (Real Honour) rubber sole, which competes blow for blow with the best rubbers in the business. This is the harder of Unparallel's two climbing compounds, and is better suited to edging than the RH formula. This means, whilst offering precisiongrip on small protrusions, it is a little less sticky overall. On the upside it does last longer than its RS counterpart. The midsole is reasonably stiff, making the UP Lace a good option on long vertical climbs, where maximum support is required.

Who are Unparallel Shoes?

Whilst you mightn't have heard of Unparallel shoes, they are far from new to the climbing shoe game. Based out of their Redlands factory in Fullerton, California, Unparallel rose from the ashes of Five Ten's US manufacturing headquarters, all of which relocated to China as part of the brand's assimilation into the Adidas family. Run by longterm Five Ten development and manufacturing associate Sang Lee, along with members of the original design team (who brought you many of Five Ten's most iconic models), Unparallel continues to go from strength to strength in both the rock climbing and mountain biking shoe categories.

The Rubber

Unparallel use rubbers based on the original Stealth compounds, all of which are sourced from the same factory which has long produced Five Ten's iconic rubber.

Finally, a climbing shoe with a wide toebox

This is the only shoe I've found comfortable for my wide toebox and bunion. Soft material, yet sticky and stable rubber. Especially good for climbing wide cracks. The first shoe that doesn't pain me at all on long multipitch days! Thanks Rock43,Run for super fast shipping.

Good for narrow feet

Good stiff, narrow shoe. Really comfy apart from cutting in on my Achilles on the right foot. Rubber did indeed feel very sticky so I'm interested to try their other designs
