Ethics & freedom, effort & fun, courage & fear; go hand in hand. They need each other, make each other possible. There is no courage without fear, nor ethics without freedom.
At Acopa, we believe that tradition & innovation, comfort & performance; also go hand in hand. Tradition nurtures innovation. Performance requires comfort.
We will bring you only top-quality, high-performance shoes and gear that help you push your limits. We will uphold a tradition of artisanal craftsmanship while pushing innovation ever forward.
All cimbers stand on the shoulders of those who climbed before them. Acopa will strive to foster an appreciation for the history, ethics, values and traditions of the mountains, as well as for climbing's legendary pioneers.
Bouldering, High-Performance & Competition
Highly-technical, highly-precise and 100% leather-free, The Nova is the new definition of high-performance.
It features a generous slab of Acopa rubber over the forefoot and an easy to hook heel design. A single point, 4-way adjustable fitting system wraps the shoe around your foot like a glove, while the soft, wide tongue holds it comfortably and securely in place. A one-of-a-kind midsole system delivers sensitivity without compromising comfort.
High performance never felt so good!
Take the next step. Step up to Acopa.

COMMITMENT & RESPONSIBILITY
WHY WE CARE
Climbing puts us in touch with Nature in a way few other pursuits ever could.
Approach-walks, contact with the rock, expansive summit views, the gradual and difficult nature of upward progress; all contribute to an increased awareness and appreciation of the environment in which we climb.
Acopa will continue to undertake and support efforts to minimize the negative impact climbing has on the environment, such as Yosemite Facelift and other local clean-up events.
As climbers, we also look out for each other and help each other as much as possible.
That’s why Acopa also supports and will continue to support initiatives to increase awareness, safety and inclusiveness in climbing, such as Outdoor Outreach and Climb Smart.

We are back because of you; thanks to you. Your loyalty and support made it happen.
