Just had a strange thought...

Would rock shoes soled with sticky motorcycle slick racing tyres be any good?

The latest Scarpas shod with Bridgestone V02 rubber.

It appears ive gone mad.

No, because the rubber used for motor racing tyres is designed to give maximum grip at higher temperatures than would be safe to wear.

Ah yeah, of course.  I think those tyre warmers keep them around 70C or something. Too toasty for your toes.
