Vibram is partnering with the Melloblocco event, the largest bouldering meeting in the world bringing together thousands of climbers. The event in Northern Italy will be held May 3-6. A certified resoler from Vibram will be on hand to put new soles on shoes using the material of your choice and will provide technical advice. An informal workshop will be offered discussing Vibram's resoling techniques and its materials, such as “XS Grip2” and “XS Edge”. Vibram was born out of a tragedy on Punta Rasica, a summit in the Melloblocco area, that spurred Vitale Bramani to invent the famous sole. This year's includes a showing of the film “The Extraordinary Story,” about the Vibram trail-running team competing in last year's Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. More information is available at The Italian company also supports popular events such as the Vibram Natural Games, the Chironico Night Session and the San Vito Lo Capo Climbing Festival, also held in Italy.
