Free Climbing

Free-climbing is designed to make climbing up and down the slope an easier experience. The sole of this unique shoe is made of slow-deform rubber, so that it can change the shape in accordance with the slope. In this way, Free-climbing is able to decrease the impact applied on the ankle joint, so that it can protect the health of the arthritis patients, the pregnant and the elderly.
