82: Wear True-To-Size(SIN)

Happy New Year to all KONA RADIO listeners! This is Hakase. In episode 82, we talk about everyone’s favorite topic. Yes, climbing shoes. We welcomed Mr. Tachibanazono-san, who is involved in the development of Unparallel shoes, and talked about various topics related to climbing shoes, including the new Souped UP shoes and shoe demos, while looking back on the year 2022.

If you feel that your current shoes are not right for you, or you are not sure about your size, or if you have any other shoe problems, this is a must listen. (from around 1:15:00)
