Refinements found in the Wing

The Butora Wing has been updated to provide enhanced utility and aesthetics. The following are some of its improvements:

  • The randing around its forefoot covers a greater area than the one seen in its former self. With it, users can perform toe jams with increased grip and protection.
  • Unlike the version that came before it, the refreshed Wing now comes with perforations on both sides for extra breathability.
  • Its pointier front profile translates to easier access to slots and similar openings.

Butora Wing vs. La Sportiva TX2

In this comparison, the Wing is pitted against one of La Sportiva’s high-quality approach shoes—the TX2. Find out their differences in the following points:

Weight factor. There is about 200 g of difference between the two competing shoes, with the TX2 taking the lightweight crown.

Breathability. While the Wing has vent holes on both its sides, its rival is more breathable thanks to its knit upper.

Rubber rand. The Wing’s 360-degree rand provides climbing traction in every direction. The TX2’s, on the other hand, is thinner and segmented, delivering enhanced flexibility.

I am passionate about maintaining an active lifestyle. I’ve been running and playing tennis since high school. In the last 5 years, I’ve picked up weight lifting and bouldering as part of my regular fitness routine. You can usually find me hitting the weights or rock walls at the gym, or trying out a new sport.
