Browse Minimalist-Style Approach and Recovery Shoes

Most outdoor climbing shoes are purposefully designed to be hard, pointy, and squeeze your toes. As soon as the climbing ends, your feet are begging for freedom. Your choice of footwear while you’re not climbing is important, and many climbers opt for barefoot shoes.

Barefoot-style footwear provides climbers with a wider, foot-shaped toe box, your toes can spread, relax, and move naturally. A flexible thin sole allows your feet will get used to safely feeling the terrain you’re on.

Browse Xero Shoes for climbing approach shoes to build up strength in your feet and ankles to wear before you climb. We also have recovery shoes that allow your toes to splay and relax after a hike.
