Wild country present their first entry into the climbing shoe market: imagined with the innovative and intricate, no compromises philosophy we have come to expect from Wild Country, and built upon their heritage of reliable industry leading hardware and apparel, the Meshuga is a new generation of climbing shoe.
Meshuga, or in Yiddish - crazy, is a fitting word used to describe the overhanging Peak District grit stone route that is the namesake of these shoes, an iconic test piece with a risky fall - you would have to be meshuga to attempt it unprepared! The shoes themselves are a delight for any climber who thrives on Meshuga style routes: dyanmic, overhanging crags and steep pitches. The Meshuga shoes deliver a relentlessly powerful, focused experience - whether you're geared up for a weekend at the crag, or heading to your next training session.
The Wild Country Meshuga climbing shoes are constructed with a moderately downturned, mildly asymmetrical last which encourages your toes to a slightly hooked position, allowing precision and power. The toe box is more flexed and slightly wider than the body of the shoe, with thermoplastic inserts to allow you to pull with your toes. This style and fit establishes the Meshuga as a performance shoe for intermediate climbers and beyond, catering to both boulderers and climbers who want to keep their shoes on throughout a long day of climbing.
Designed with a dynamic, triple layered microfibre and ultra strong polyurethane upper, the Meshuga climbing shoes retain their shape and performance for much longer than a rubber upper would, whilst the layering system provides variable rigidity: instantaneously adapting to pressure on the outsole by delivering tension across the shoe. This equates to stretch where you need it and support where it matters, accompanied by a snug, comfortable fit to ensure you can push your limits - every session.
The Meshuga features exclusive Michelin Formula Wild compound rubber, inspired by MotoGP tires, engineered to optimise weight, streamline performance consistency and enhance comfort. The sole is comprised of an impressive single piece of injection moulded rubber, providing exceptional durability and friction for unrivalled precision and grip - allowing you to effortlessly hook, grab and edge in even the most challenging situations.
Wild Country's Meshuga shoe is a performance, velcro shoe for advanced control, focusing on flexibility and sensitivity - excelling at overhanging boulder problems and steep trad and sport routes.
