Built for steep rock, the unlined Rap is an aggressive, anatomically lasted shoe with a pointed toe that loves to latch onto the smallest nubbins. The shoe’s tongue is attached with stretchy Neoprene and, in concert with nylon lacing straps that elevate the arch, provides a tight yet comfortable fit. Like the Orca, the Rap needs another row of lacing.
Pros: Form-fitting tongue. Excellent toe- grabbing.
Cons: Heel pull-tabs sewn on inside. Needs more toe lacing.
