SO ILL Runner Climbing Shoe
The So iLL Runner climbing shoe is an all-round climbing shoe inspired by the retro running shoe - in style only; modern day functionality is what give this blast-from-the-past its competitive edge.
The So iLL Runner Climbing Shoe design’s carefully crafted balance is made for versatility across all styles of climbing. A medium-stiff sole with a highly downturned toe allow for precision and power on technical or steep, overhanging boulder or sport climbs, while the fish-hook thin midsole enhances edging performance on more vertical, slabby routes. Downturned enough to tackle performance bouldering, but stiff enough for foot support on longer climbs. Style doesn’t have to mean sacrificing function.
PLEASE NOTE: The guys at So iLL suggest men order a half-size up from street shoe size for a tight and functional fit, and ladies order one size down for a tight, functional fit.

Dark Matter Rubber: "Add Colour to your Climbs"
Originally formulated for the United States Navy Seals to ensure security in foot placement during approaches, Dark Matter rubber is now being implemented in So iLL’s climbing shoes for a level of grip worthy of the most advanced and harshest terrains in the world. The Runner features all blue "Dark Matter" rubber, a member of the "UnParallel Rubber" family, a sticky coloured outsole rubber and the first ever of it’s kind.
The padded tongue, breathable mesh upper, and thin lining offers comfort and reliability. Crafted with synthetic materials to create a long lasting fit (minimal stretch) and a three point velcro closure system, the Runner is a supreme climbing shoe blending fashion and function.
