I remember Rosholt doing Kloberdanz in Addidas, I also remember falling (sliding) right off of Moby Dick Center in RR's.

I still love Kronhoffers, you can do an alpine approach and climb with the same shoe. I had a larger pair for wearing thick wool socks when doing alpine rock routes in the cooler seasons.

Shounards came out after PA's and even EB's, I think. My buddy bought PA's and I bought Shoenards as our first shoes in 77 or so. Shoenards sucked at anything but mixed aid/easy free.

It's a good thing nobody ever informed Steve Wunsch of that before he freed Supercrack in the Gunks wearing them.

There was a climb in Eldo I could only lead in my Shoenards. C'est La Vie edging up that crux dihedral. Ironically they were only needed for one foot and one move, and on the next move (smearing) I wished I could magically change shoes.

I'm sure better climbers have done both moves barefoot.

I think we are all lucky not to have DEERFORMED lower ribs after the "swami only" days!

Climbing in Fabianos. Obviously I devolved since I didn't get to Josh 'till '82...

rgold asked "Yellow and Black ???"

these were from "san marco", italy. came out at the beginning of the 80'.
as i remember somehow patrick berhault was involved, wether seeing him climbing in this shoes and/or putting his name on it.
pretty comfortable but the rand didn't hold up well.
bought it in the lacedelli store in cortina.
