How Climbing Shoes are Made

Climbing Shoe Construction types

Cool post from WeighMyRack Blog.

There are 2 main methods to make climbing shoes: slip-last and board-last construction. Slip-lasted shoes are by far the most common today, with only a handful of manufacturers still producing board-lasted shoes.
The rule-of-thumb: Board-last construction creates a relatively stiff, supportive shoe and is reserved for flat, comfort-oriented kicks. Slip-last construction on the other hand can be used to create any style of shoe from a noodle-soft slipper to a morning-wood stiff high-top.

Although a flat and stiff shoe can be either board or slip-lasted, a soft or aggressively downturned shoe is the exclusive realm of slip-last construction.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
