No matter how much shredded gnar you leave in your wake, one fact remains: to climb well, you need good footwork. But it’s hard to know which shoes to pack, especially when you’re new to the game. This summer, a bomber toe-twinkler enters the all-around market: the LA SPORTIVA NAGO ($99, sportiva.com), a comfort-fitting performance lace-up. Waddya get? Stickier-than-flypaper 5mm Vibram XS Grip soles, a perforated upper for ventilation, a synthetic-leather arch that wicks sweat, and a 1.1mm Laspoflex midsole as your edging platform. I rode the Nago hard on August-hot granite — crack, face, slab, flares. Performance stayed high, and everyone went home happy, with bizzled, pain-free feet.
