Al last, the real deal! The Tornado is a true hybrid that sets new standards in fit, build quality and performance. Combining a deft, subtle feel with a surefootedness and solidity that gives total confidence the Tornado offers a combination of climability and comfort that has to be felt to be believed.

With a reassuring build and definitive rockshoe feel at the toe, Tornado has a lower volume forefoot and less asymmetry and extra protection via our extendet randing - perfect for cracks or descents. At the heel the attention to detail is no less complete but is more comfort orientated, with a trainer feel and fit giving cushioning and protection second to none and a style adapted from "adventure" race shoe designs!! The art in the Tornado is the combination of these two parts to form a consistent whole. Red Chili achieved this by utilising a sewn in tongue and unique "quicklace/garage" system. This has the fast adjustment and comfort of a trainer with the solid, supportive "locked-in" fit required by a rockshoe. Finished off with a dot sole for top traction in a variety of conditions and extra rubber on the heel for support and descents, the Tornado adapts to the widest range of challenges and grades.

I bought a size too big, but still grips the tiniest ledges. Unfortunately, I've already punched through the toe on one shoe. Seeing if Red Chili will remedy the problem.
