UP Duel


Product Overview

 UnParallel’s UP Duel is a modern take on the classic moccasin/slipper-style shoe. The synthetic upper is soft and supple (and vegan), giving a comfortable fit for training sessions and romps on the gritstone. The sole’s moderate asymmetry and stiffness is particularly suited to smearing and friction climbing, giving precision without brutalizing the toes.

A delicate decorative hatching gives a nod to the design collaboration with Tomoa Narasaki and the inaugural climbing competition at the Tokyo Olympics, for which the UP Duels were originally developed.
