As the first-ever dedicated speed-climbing shoe, The Cobra 4:99 uses smooth, breathable microfiber uppers to reduce friction on the skin. It features a Vibram™ Grip2™ sole , which provides maximum upward momentum, and heat-sealed TPU coating on top of the toes to ensure snag-free sliding on climbing holds when dragging your feet up. Key differentiations from the original Cobra include a new tongue pull construction that enables easy on/off, a flat downturn, and an 80g weight reduction for a lightweight climbing shoe that is specifically intended for speed climbing. Are you ready to beat the 5 seconds with the Cobra 4:99?
