Good to know
-The Diamond from Ocun is engineered for ascents where precision over micro-footholds is required. Its stiff and downturned construction translates to multi-faceted performance, thereby allowing wearers to pull off a wide variety of climbing maneuvers with relative ease.
-It comes furnished with a Vibram outsole for slip and skid resistance. It almost seamlessly transitions to the Diamond’s hard-wearing midsole, which delivers support underfoot.
Downturn. The Ocun Diamond comes with an aggressively downturned forefoot zone. With it, climbing enthusiasts can send projects with as much tiptoeing precision as possible. Its highly cambered construction may provide enough comfort for single-pitch climbs.
Applications. This aggressive Ocun piece is built for sport and trad climbing, as well as bouldering. Its designers engineered it with components that give users the ability to scale cracks with efficiency. It can be used on overhangs and vertical faces, whether indoors or outdoors.
Ocun’s Diamond is a low-top unisex rock climbing shoe. Senders from the female gender camp may need to go down a full size to get a comfy fit in it. The foot is expected to bend inward within its highly asymmetric confines. It might provide only a little in terms of stretch, thanks to its synthetic upper. It favors those with an Egyptian foot type, which is distinguished by tapering toes, starting from the big toe. Owners can get a personalized lockdown in it by means of the shoe’s to-toe lacing system.
Midsole. The Ocun Diamond comes with a 3D-engineered midsole for extra underfoot support. Its developers made it extra stiff to give wearers additional climbing security minus the unnecessary leg strain. They also topped it with a plush insole, which is made of natural leather, to provide climbers with even more comfort.
Outsole. On the grip performance front, climbing fans have the Ocun Diamond’s Vibram XS Grip outsole to thank. It has a segmented construction for flexibility. 4 mm is its overall thickness.
The Diamond’s below-the-ankle upper is a combination of microfiber (synthetic) and authentic leather. Stitched securely to its back part are two synthetic pull loops, which make slipping in and out of the shoe a rather swift affair.
Around its lower perimeter is a grippy rubber rand, which transitions to the shoe’s toe patch for hooking grip. Its heel zone, on the other hand, has a tensioned rand for additional heel support and traction.
Rounding out all things upper in the Ocun Diamond is its asymmetric lace-up closure. It consists of a combination of tunnels and non-plated eyelets, as well as a flat synthetic lace.
