Black Diamond Technician Approach – Performance Over Comfort

Black Diamond Men’s Technician Approach Shoes are lightweight sneakers that are very tenacious and durable making them suitable for rock climbing. Using a proprietary breathable EnduroKnit upper, the model has superior temperature control while remaining extremely durable for use on rocks. The lightweight midsole allows for easy insertion and removal, and the midfoot TPU strap and lace-up closure increase security, while the graduated system completely encloses the toe for a snug fit. The EVA Technician outsole consists of a strategic ratio of stiffness to comfort, allowing for precision where you need it and comfort in the right places. The latter, as the name implies, is ideal for technical climbing, and the BlackLabel-Mountain shoe rubber provides a very tenacious and reliable grip that requires precise movements you can trust your life to. The model has a narrow, flat last and a snug fit compared to traditional athletic shoes. If you use them for climbing and technical approaches, buy your measured Brannock size. If you prefer a casual fit or have a wide foot, you can opt for a size-and-a-half.
