    Aloha,

    "Ill-fitting and excessively tight footwear was found in 55 out of 56 rock climbers."

    Wow, here is a problem looking for a solution.

    Good thing climbers don't wear their helmets that small it may squeeze the gray matter out of their ears.

    We have a novel solution for enhancing balancing climbing performance while mitigating foot injury, if anyone is interested...

    Take a closer look into advanced composite systems, they offer a far higher coefficient of friction than rubber and foam to hold the edge.

    Mahalo,
    Steve
