Description

Description

Engineered for precision, the Black Diamond Technician is ultralight, super sticky, and durable, making it the clutch scrambling approach shoe. Featuring our signature EnduroKnit breathable upper, the Technician has superior temperature control, while remaining ultra-durable for abuse on the rocks. The lightweight half-bootie tongue allows for easy on and off at the crag, and a TPU midfoot strap and lace lock adds security while the graduated lace system goes all the way to the toe for a lockdown fit. The Technician’s tuned EVA midsole consists of a strategic stiffness-to-comfort ratio, allowing for high-performance precision where you need it, and comfort in just the right spots. The last is ideal for technical climbing, as the name implies, and the shoe’s BlackLabel-Mountain rubber provides super sticky, ultimate grip on terrain that demands precise edging and smearing you can trust your life to. Finally, the Technician’s multiple webbing loops offer various tagging and stowing options for when the approach ends and the hard climbing begins.

The Technician has a narrow, flat last and a close-to-foot performance fit when compared with traditional athletic shoes. If you are using the Technician for climbing and technical approaches, buy your measured Brannock size. If you desire a casual fit or have a wide foot, you may want to size up ½ size.

Technician Approach Shoes - Women's is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shoe! Great approach shoe! I definitely recommend buying a half size bigger than you usually wear. I bought my usual size and they fit a little snug, also downhill doesn’t feel great because my toes get jammed. I think if they were a half size bigger, they would overall be fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around Shoe These shoes are very comfortable, they have a sock like fit. It’s hard for me to find shoes that fit so well. They have a deep heel cup, which keeps your foot securely in the shoe. They are a great all around shoe, but note they do run very small. I usually wear a 5.5 and had to size up 1 full size, to a 6.5. I will buy more pairs, it’s hard to find shoes that fit so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Moving in the Mountains In terms of moving in the mountains these shoes can kind of do it all. I have always struggled with ankle stability when hiking, scrambling, or doing long approaches, but these shoes have not given me any issues. They offer so much stability and control and the rubber is top notch. For someone who is notoriously uncoordinated without climbing shoes on, these have been very helpful!
