Here's a shot of your original cobra shoes in the gym. I've been climbing in this exact pair of shoes since 2006, over five years. Original shoes, original rubber, and they still get me up a V8 on a low gravity day! Sportiva is all I'll climb.
Ahhhh yea!! Checkout these Cobras - with socks! Standing on top of Longs Peak, circa 1996?
