-The vegan-friendly (a.k.a. animal-free) Ocun Nitro is a performance-oriented rock climbing shoe. It is engineered to help climbers pull off highly technical maneuvers efficiently.

-Much like most climbing shoes from Ocun, the Nitro is built with the 3-Force System. This brand-owned technology gives the shoe improved torsional (twisting) stiffness, thereby supporting the foot as it deals with micro-edges and similar tiny projections.

Downturn. The Nitro, with its highly downturned toe box, is an aggressive climbing shoe. Its hardy talon-like forefoot, along with the 3-Force System, delivers toeing precision and security on chips, pebbles, and sags. Rock shoes with this type of camber are comfy enough for short climbs and single-pitch problems.

Applications. This aggressively downturned Ocun piece is intended primarily for boulderers. Users may use it both indoors and outdoors, especially on overhanging terrain.

Ocun’s Nitro is a unisex rock climbing shoe that comes with a low-cut ankle cuff. Female senders are advised to get it in about a full size smaller than their sneaker size to get a snug fit out of it. With regular use and over time, its synthetic confines might stretch, albeit no more than an inch.

The toe types it accommodates by default include cube and Egyptian. The former refers to digits that are lined up seemingly in a level line, while the latter refers to toes that taper from the big toe down.

To make toeing maneuvers as precise as possible, Ocun shoemakers gave the Nitro a highly asymmetric shape. This means that the featured shoe will force the foot to bend inward, generating pressure around the climber’s arch. A secure lockdown is courtesy of the Nitro’s hook-and-loop closure.

Midsole. This competition-centric climbing shoe sports a proprietary midsole, called 2D Fit Soft. As indicated by its name, this exclusive sole technology grants a combination of support and flexibility underfoot.

Outsole. In the Ocun Nitro, wearers can mount on a variety of projections and features, including 3D ones, with a sense of security thanks to the shoe’s CAT 1.5 outsole. It has a segmented design for added flexibility. Its fully rubberized entirety comes at an overall thickness of 4.5 mm.

The Nitro owes its fuzzy texture from its synthetic below-the-ankle upper made of microfiber. Its pull loops come in twos, making on and off a relatively easy affair. Its ability to latch on to either man-made or rocky surfaces is a joint effort between the shoe’s sticky rubberized coating and tensioned rand, which is part of the 3-Force System.

Rounding out all things upper in the Ocun Nitro is the rock climbing shoe’s Velcro-based closure system. It is made up of a heavy-duty adjustable strap furnished to the edges with hook-and-loop fasteners. Its loopy attach pad is triangular, giving fit configurations even more depth.
