Meshuga - A completely new design of precision climbing shoe

Redesigning precision

Award   WINNER 2017
Category   Footwear
Company   Wild Country

Climbing shoe precision is achieved by combining shoe tension with rubber performance. The Meshuga is a completely new design of performance shoe that redefines both these categories. Unique upper fits like a second skin: Laminated layers of naturally elastic PU and microfiber in a patent-pending sandwich composite construction result in an "out of the box" fit that maintains its precise shape and performance over its lifetime. MICHELIN® rubber moulded outsole: The first time that moulded outsoles have been used for performance climbing shoes. The rubber compound offers greater friction, better edging support and more consistency in performance over a wider range of temperatures.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Design
  • Workmanship
