Unparallel Up Mocc notable features

  • The Unparallel Up Mocc is engineered for climbing enthusiasts who wish to send a variety of projects in a plush yet highly adaptable slip-on rock shoe. It is categorized under Unparallel’s soft-soled kicks, which allow for the wearer’s technical climbing skills to shine.
  • It comes with two types of rubber: RH and VD. The former, also known as Real Honor, delivers ample friction underfoot. The latter (VD or Virtual Damping), on the other hand, serves as the shoe’s sticky toe patch.

Who should buy the Unparallel Up Mocc

The Unparallel Up Mocc is a bouldering-slash-trad climbing shoe. Climbers claimed that it is capable of getting into and scaling cracks. It can be used both on plastic surfaces and rocky formations.

Who should not buy the Unparallel Up Mocc

The Up Mocc is one of Unparallel’s neutral offerings. Climbers stated that it comes without a downward camber. Neutral climbing kicks like this shoe are designed to provide lasting comfort, ideal for multiple pitches and extended sessions. If you are looking for an all-around performer that specializes in ascending slabs, you might want to check the Evolv Rave.

Precise and comfortable fit

The Up Mocc is a low-cut climbing shoe. As it is a unisex piece of gear, female senders are advised to go down a full and a half size for a precise and comfy fit. Climbers stated that its leather upper might stretch a little bit with regular use.

Climbers also mentioned that their feet will likely bend inward, giving their arch some pressure as a result.

Supplies surface adherence as possible

Thanks to the Unparallel Up Mocc’s RH outsole, climbers stated that they can ascend their preferred route or send a challenging project with as much surface adherence as possible. They are also amazed with its enhanced friction on edges.

Excellent edging performance

Many climbers mentioned that its softness is sourced from its flexible midsole. They stated that it is still rigid enough to support the foot adequately during edging maneuvers. 

Easy to wear

This climbing shoe has three synthetic pull loops which climbers loved as it makes the wearer slip in and out of the shoe much easier.

Multi-directional slip and skid resistance

Climbers mentioned that its high-contact points are heavily randed for multi-directional slip and skid resistance. 

Slipper-style closure

Completing the Up Mocc’s upper equation is the rock shoe’s slipper-style closure. Climbers mentioned that it allows them to dial in the perfectly tensioned fit.
