Black Diamond Zone LV Climbing Shoe

Black Diamond Zone LV Climbing Shoe

Description

The Black Diamond Zone LV Climbing Shoe is a high-performance shoe designed for both indoor and outdoor climbing. It combines the comfort and breathability of the award-winning Momentum climbing shoes with the aggressive last of the Shadows, making it perfect for sending at the gym or the crag.

The upper of the Zone LV is made with Black Diamond’s Engineered Knit Technology, which provides stretch where you need it, support where it matters, and exceptional breathability. This means you can go hard at the gym without worrying about your feet overheating. The shoe’s last is downturned and based on the aggressive shape of the Shadows, making the Zone adept at pulling hard on steep rock or plastic.

One of the standout features of the Zone LV is its sticky Fuze rubber. Unlike traditional rubber sheets, the Fuze rubber is molded, inspired by the way Black Diamond forges their carabiners. This engineered solution optimizes the shoe’s rubber and rands for consistency and comfort, providing superior grip and performance. The vamp area of the shoe also has printed rubber for extra friction while toe-hooking.

The Zone LV features a minimalist midsole, which adds a balance of sensitivity and power, making it ideal for steep terrain. It also has two Velcro straps for fit adjustability, with one designed extra wide for locking in an aggressive fit. The LV designation indicates that this shoe is built on a narrow last, perfect for low volume feet.
