Unparallel Up Rise VCS Climbing Shoe

The UnParallel Up Rise VCS is a true all-rounder that performs on any terrain. It's based on the same last as the Five Ten Anasazi VCS, but the original creators have made some improvements to the fit of their new version and used a new rubber compound called UnParallel 'Real Honor'. Real Honor is the stiffest rubber UnParallel make, and when combined with the Up Rise VCS' medium-stiff midsole, it provides support and stability on small edges and micro footholds whilst still maintaining the ability to smear. Moderate downturn and asymmetry ensure precision and sensitivity without being too uncomfortable. A proper all-rounder that will get you up anything.

Up Rise VCS Climbing Shoe

UnParallel 'Real Honor' Rubber

'Real Honor' is the hardest rubber UnParallel have to offer. It's exceptionally good at edging and provides added support to the foot on small holds and longer climbs.

Summary

• VD (Virtual Demping) rubber toe patch, UnParallel's softest and stickiest rubber compound
• Lined synthetic upper won't stretch, so buy true to size

Great shoes

I've used 5:10 velcros for year's. These fit me exactly the same in terms of sizing. However, the slingshot heal and the split tongue are much improved. The rubber is every bit as good as 5:10 rubber as you would expect given the people involved.

The build quality seems to be good. But this based an the difficulties the doctors had cutting a shoe off after an accident. Will definitely be getting another pair.
