The Butora Sensa's Profile

Downturn. The Sensa is an aggressive climbing shoe manufactured by Butora. Its downturn enables senders to gain a foothold on challenging terrain. The shoe’s aggressive downturn places the toes in a curled position, making it suitable for technical send attempts.

Size and fit

The Butora Sensa is a low-top climbing shoe built for men and women. It comes with an unlined knit woven upper that’s designed to hold its shape and give minimal stretch. The shoe’s asymmetric shape requires the user’s foot to bend inward. Wearers can get a snug fit, thanks to the shoe’s slip-on closure.
