The Team VXi's has a soft, synthetic suede upper that molds to your foot when you climb. Combined with Five Ten's new MI6 rand that is more sensitive and supple than other rands, and Five Ten's performance downturned last, the shoe is more comfortable and formfitting for longer climbing sessions. The Team VXi provides a super-responsive feel and allows you to pull your body into the wall, as if you had hands for feet. Performance is further enhanced by Five Ten's Active Arch Support that positions the shoe on your foot for a glove-like fit. A Velcro® closure system makes the shoe easy to put on, or to take off between sends.
