Black Diamond is a top gear brand known for its climbing equipment and core outdoors products. Next year, the company launches a footwear line aimed at the masses.

The collection has four models, including men’s and women’s shoes made not for trails or mountain peaks but for casual use.

Dubbed a “performance lifestyle” design, some of the shoes target people in search of easy-to-wear footwear for everyday life. They borrow an aesthetic seen in Black Diamond’s technical climbing shoes.

The shoes will be sold at outdoor shops and online. Price tags range from $100 to $135.
