Description

Engineered to provide laser precision on routes and boulder problems that require absolute focus, this dual-Velcro, high-performance shoe has a slightly downturned last for edging prowess on steeper terrain. With the highest grade European leather upper and our Engineered Knit Technology tongue, the Focus provides breathability and durability. We also printed high friction rubber on the vamp area of the shoe—this innovative process minimizes bulk while maximizing dexterity and grip for toe-hooking. The sole of the Focus is our stiff, durable rubber that’s molded—inspired by the way we forge our carabiners—and not cut from one sheet of rubber. This is our engineered solution to optimize our shoe’s rubber and rands for weight, consistency and comfort. The Focus also features medial and lateral stabilizer rands to increase precision by keeping your foot from rolling when pressure is applied to the outside or inside edges.

  • Moderate, slightly down-turned last for technical climbing on vertical to gently-overhanging terrain
  • 4.3mm rubber is purpose-built for edging and molded for consistency and performance
  • Engineered Knit Technology tongue provides exceptional breathability and comfort
  • Fine, durable leather upper
  • High friction rubber is printed on the shoe to minimize bulk and maximize dexterity and grip for toe hooking
  • Velcro straps for fit adjustability
  • Medial and Lateral stabilizer rands increase precision by keeping your foot from rolling when pressure is applied to the outside or inside edges

Climb Shoe Comparision

 
Focus Climbing Shoes - Men's is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from They fear no edge... These shoes are winning me over. I’ve had them out two days, clipping bolts on just past vertical routes, about 10 pitches total on these shoes. If there is an edge, these shoes will get you on that edge. I’m a fan of stiff shoes and these are quite stiff. The shoe design really gets your big toe on top of that edge. They remind me of my favorite sport climbing shoe, the Scarpa Boostic. I’m a street shoe 11 and went with an 11 in this shoe. Day one was pretty painful but now they are comfortably snug, just what I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit, good edging I wear size 42, and got Focus shoes 42. When tried those on at home it seemed incredibly tight on the tows and I though once there are rubber pads on the leather the toes would never stretch. I thought Focus shoes toe design is very narrow. But once tried the shoes on the rocks it unexpectedly felt larger and perfect fit. I think 42.5 would be larger for me. The sizing is perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great edging shoe I bought this a couple weeks ago and they were really tight at first ( i sized up 1/2 size) but after they broke in they Are a great texhnical sport climbing shoe. Awesome for standing on small edges

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edging Shoe I don't agree with the other reviewer on sizing, I needed to go 1/2 under street size to get a snug fit, which I wouldn't call extremely tight by any means. I also don't think its particularly aggressive, just a slight downturn. It is quite stiff, but it does a great job of putting power through your toes, gives me a lot of confidence on small holds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be great ...but a few notes If buying this shoe sight unseen, be aware it runs very small compared to its listed size, even more so than other BD shoes that are known for this already. I already own a pair of Momentums from BD, which I sized up to a 9.5 in compared to a size 9 5.10 Anasazi VCS. In the Focus I had to go up another half size, all the way to size 10 to feel like I wasn't going to be in pain the whole route. This is partly due to the aggressiveness of the shoe, which I would call more than mid-aggressive. Also partly due to the toebox of the shoe being made of sued and not the knit material. The suede may stretch if you are close to making it work, or you may have to compromise slightly on fit one way or the other. Besides this small qualm, these shoes fit like they will throttle up steep, overhangy routes. The rubber sole was stiffer than I expected, and the downturn and highly pointed toe are on-point. Looking forward to getting these, or perhaps if BD would consider a lace version for optimal fit customization, and cranking up some hard routes to compare to the Momentum.
