Black Diamond Mission XP Leather Approach Shoes
Engineered to handle long approaches where precision, durability and comfort are clutch, the Black Diamond Mission Leather is the approach shoe you want for long days in the mountains with rough terrain and off-trail ascents.
Suede Leather Upper
Designed with durable suede leather and welded synthetic upper, the Mission Leather Climbing shoes slip on and provide you security and comfort that lasts all day long. The Mission Leather shoes feature a suede leather upper with welded TPU overlays, which provides your feet with a layer of protection from the dirt and debris, season after season, as well as a lining on the inner for ultra-comfort and a secure fit. The upper has small perforations through the fabric, which allows cool air to flow throughout the upper whilst, at the same time allowing humid air to escape. The increase in airflow creates a perfect microclimate for your feet to thrive in and prevents a build-up of uncomfortable heat. The shoes have a rubber toe protection, keeping your feet shielded against rocks and debris. Completing the upper is a traditional lacing system keeping your feet locked in and secure with every stride, as well as, a gusseted tongue that prevents debris from entering and further locks in your foot.
Dual Density Tuned EVA Midsole
The midsole has been constructed using a tuned EVA which ensures stiffness and comfort for all-day wear. The EVA protects your foot from the impact, collisions, and stress that may be endured during long adventures outdoors. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Exceptionally lightweight, the EVA ensures long-lasting cushioning to keep you comfortable on long-distance days. EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. The energy produced from this will also be returned as rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step. The midsole ensures you're ready for unpredictable trails and tough terrain.
BlackLabel-Mountain Rubber Outsole
Designed to provide traction and grip on outdoor adventures, the Black Diamond Mission XP Approach Shoes have been constructed using a BlackLabel-Mountain Rubber Outsole. This high-performance sticky rubber ensures unbeatable grip and friction on technical terrain. The outsole provides grip and traction to any terrain, it sticks to all surfaces whether they are wet or dry so you can get up and go whatever the weather. Despite facing abuse from rough ground, the rubber stands up against this, deflecting the blows and retaining a strong shape and structure. This will mean that the definition and the functionality of the outsole will remain strong over a long period of time.
