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 Parthian is a new generation of climbing shoe.
The eponymous iconic gritstone rock face, Parthian Shot, which protrudes out into the Peak District's Burbage Valley is becoming inspiration for the Parthian climbing shoes, an intricate blend of mighty and tenuous moves. Simultaneously embodying aspects of the ancient Parthians themselves, the 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 Parthian climbing shoes are constructed with a flat, moderately asymmetrical last which encourages your toes to remain in a neutral position, whilst allowing you to drive power from your toes to the ball of your foot. This style and fit establishes the Parthian as a comfortable, yet responsive shoe for intermediate climbers and beyond, whilst simultaneously catering to less experienced climbers who want a shoe they can grow and progress in.
Designed with a dynamic, triple layered microfibre and ultra strong polyurethane upper, the Parthian 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 Parthian 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.
Wild Country's Parthian shoe is a lace up shoe for advanced control which rewards technique - no matter your climbing style, from technical trad routes, to sport climbing and indoor fun.
