Ocun Ozone Plus Climbing Shoe

The ozone Plus offers all the advantages of the Ozone shoes, including the 3-Force system, to climbers with wider feet.

The Ozone Plus are that rarest of beasts, a comfortable performance shoe that feel good straight out of the box. They are ideal for boulderers and sport climbers as well as agraphobic cellar dwellers.

From all of us having tried them on, we would recommend going a size down from street shoe for a snug performance fit. They are the Plus version of the ozone shoe, which suits a wider/higher volume foot.

They need to be tried on to appreciate just how nice the toebox is shaped and would suit people who are used to a Scarpa fit.

  • A modern gun for competitive and performance climbers
  • Very precise on tiny edges and pockets
  • Due to the 3-Force system they set a new trend in the approach to climbing

STAFF REVIEW - Rich

Having been given a test pair of the Ozone Plus in mid October, I've had plenty of time to break them in and give them a thorough test both indoors and outside. The outside testing took place in Fontainebleau for a week in November and due to our incredible winter bouldering season back in Wales, they have been worn exclusively indoors ever since!

The first impression out of the box was a good looking, slightly garish shoe that has a very tensioned heel band which is a bit tricky to get past but offers a great vacuum like fit once you can fight the heel in. I usually wear Scarpa Instinct VS as my main shoe of choice and the toebox on the Ozone Plus was of a similar generous fit in terms of width and depth, so no toes being crushed inwards and down. The microfiber synthetic leather is super comfy against the skin without the usual hot spots that you find on many rubber coated top end shoes.

In practice I found that they were suprisingly versatile and after only 2 weeks of breaking in, they were the only shoe I used for a whole trip to Fontainebleau across all angles and grades. Being a soft shoe, they worked well on smeary slabs as well as for digging in and pulling on smaller edges in steeper terrain. I did have to take them off a bit more frequently towards the end of every session due to swelled and sore feet (the tension band does its job of holding the shoe in place and your foot arch will need some respite if out for the whole day).

I have used them intensively indoors for the local winter aggregate leagues, whilst trying to forget about the existence of outdoor bouldering for a while and they have continued to perform beyond my initial expectations in terms of performance and build quality. The only part I have managed to cause some damage to is the heel area where the microfiber has separated from the rubber due to extensive heel action. THis hasn't had an impact on the shoe and is a minor qualm.

I would strongly recommend these shoes to boulderers and sport climbers who like a shoe on the soft end of the scale and require a broader fit. If you are into non steep edging, then they will likely be too soft once broken in. The price point is great and they are a worthy contender for those considering stepping into the performance shoe market but not wanting to spend > £100.
