I love this climbing shoe! I wear a size 11 in all of my footwear and these are no exception. A little snug but hey, that's climbing shoes for ya. Personally, I prefer the lace-ups for my climbing shoes because I feel I get a better fit and can easily adjust if I need to. These shoes fit well and perform great. They look sweet with the red and will stain your feet a little bit but comes right off in the shower. All in all, I definitely recommend these shoes.
These would make a great shoe for beginners and experienced climbers. If you've ever taken a climbing course, you probably used these. Guides love them because they are very durable and fit a wide range of feet because of the wide adjustment range given by the laces.I've never used another shoe that had the laces go down this far. This takes some of the worry out of sizing and ordering online, because, even as the leather stretches out, you can fine tune down the entire length of your foot for a perfect fit, no matter what.Performs great, too, so even more experienced climbers should try them out.
I haven't gotten outside to use this shoe yet because of all the crap snow the area has been getting (SD). However, I've been doing some indoor climbing and so far the shoe is super comfy and fits well. The red dye comes off a little bit, but I'm sure that won't be a problem after it gets more use. The sole feels a little thin but has good grip. Overall, I'm glad I bought this shoe.
I bought these shoes when i first got into climbing. they are rugged as heck and very comfortable for all day climbing. great for beginning outdoor climbing. Took some time to break in but once they did, couldnt fit better. Highly recommend these as a solid first pair
"Great first shoe - still keeping me chuggin'!"
This is my first climbing shoe, I was hesitant with buying it online but the sizing chart really helps with finding your size and its pretty spot on. When I first go them they were a bit tight, but as I got myself on the rocks they started to loosen and conform more to how my foot and how I climb.The heel has great padding, but be careful with your hooks - it can get a bit "pinchy". The toe is still holding after having them for about 8 months and the cushion is still keeping my feet nice and steady, there's barely a time where I feel a hold dig into my foot - it's really a solid shoe. I recommend it
Look, Im a perfectionist and must have everything I own fitting perfect. I am an 8.5 shoe size and This shoe is on Point, I love the laces because you can adjust from the toe all the way up your foot. It works best when nice and tight to get into the cracks and different foot holds. Kinda funny though, The first time I wore them I had red feet afterwards because of the leather dye!! This shoe is also easy on the wallet for first timers or even tight wads!!
