Who should buy the Millet Rock Up
The Rock Up has enough aces up its sleeve to be considered another one of Millet’s finest. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a climbing shoe that offers longevity, comfort, and footing security.
- Prefer a climbing shoe that provides excellent underfoot traction.
Millet Rock Up notable features
- The Rock Up is built with longevity, comfort, and footing security in mind. Millet brandishes it as a “progress” shoe, in which senders can develop their climbing skills, whether inside or outside the gym.
- Its straightforward construction promises climbers a well-rounded kind of performance on a variety of surfaces. It uses a proprietary outsole called 4 Points Grip for traction underfoot.
Downturn. The Millet Rock Up is a neutral climbing shoe, which means it has no downward camber. Its flat, downturn-less front end enables users to gain a secure footing on edges and similar projections. Comfort in neutral rock kicks can last multiple pitches and extended climbing sessions.
Applications. This piece is an all-around climbing shoe. It is a rock shoe for beginners and intermediate climbers alike. Owners may use it either on rock- or wall-type surfaces.
Millet’s Rock Up is a below-the-ankle rock shoe for men and women. It has a roomy fit overall. It might provide a bit of stretch, thanks to its mostly leather upper. Inside its straight (non-asymmetric) confines, the foot can lie comfortably flat. Millet engineers gave it a lace-to-toe closure for fit management and lockdown security.
Secures platform on edges and like surfaces
This Millet climbing shoe has its provision of traction (underfoot) sourced from its brand-exclusive outsole, called 4 Points Grip. Its non-segmented construction serves as a secure platform on edges and like surfaces. 4 millimeters is its overall thickness.
The Rock Up is equipped with a soft midsole for added comfort underfoot. It comes paired with a broad footbed (also known as insole) to bolster its level of support.
Easy to wear
Enclosing the foot in the Millet Rock Up is the climbing shoe’s stitched-on upper made of split leather. Its roughed-out finish lends the shoe a suede-like feel. To make on and off an expedited experience, it comes with a pair of synthetic pull loops. Its mesh tongue is made extra lightweight for a freer and comfier climbing experience.
Provides toe-hooking traction
For lateral or sideways grip, Millet designers gave it sufficient randing around its lower perimeter. They also furnished its forefoot (the inner side) with a minimal toe patch for toe-hooking traction.
Lace-type closure system
The Rock Up’s upper equation is made complete with its lace-type closure system. It is comprised of a sturdy lace made of interwoven synthetic cords and regular eyelets, the uppermost two of which are plated for longevity.
