Why We
Made This...

Designed to go from trail to rock with precision and comfort

The DFS Rock collection uses a ground breaking Dual Fit System (“DFS”) to give you both maximum comfort during your approach and high performance fit while climbing and scrambling. The Rock DFS has two separate lace zones that utilize lightweight webbing that wraps around and under your foot which enables you to customize your shoe for the fit you want. The Rock DFS midsole incorporates a lightweight EVA foam for cushioning and a polyurethane heel for durability and support. The midsole is then wrapped with sticky climbing rubber to protect your shoe and to provide extra grip. Together with a Vibram Approcciosa sole with Megagrip, the resulting Rock DFS offers a high-performance approach shoe for all day comfort.

How We
Use This...

Everything I want out of a shoe

I’ve only had them for a month now but I’m very happy with these shoes! They are just the right amount of stiff while still being able to feel the ground below you. Very comfy, perfect for hiking.

These shoes are promoted as a type of sticky rubber climbing shoe. To be clear, the rubber is not sticky. It doesn't perform like the Guide Tennie. That said, the shoe is a nice trail show...

Great Shoe

My first impression of the shoe was very good. They are really well made. After around 40 miles of hiking and scrambling in the Sierra Nevada mountains I am even more impressed. They have held up really well and are very comfortable. The Vibram rubber is good, but not as sticky as other more rock climbing shoe rubber, but the durability makes up for that. I also like the lacing system. It is nice to tighten them up quickly when needed.

I feel like they run a little on the big size. I think next time I will down size, half a size. The size I got are good for normal hiking, but when it gets to forth class into easy fifth, I would like a tighter fit.

The Gore-Tex is also very water proof. I have done many creek crossing and my feet have stayed dry.

Overall, I will be recommending this shoe to others. It is great.
