This is a great beginner climbing shoe. It’s affordable and for me broke in pretty quickly. Overall a very comfortable shoe, I have medium wide feet and it felt like it was right in the sweet spot. These shoes did wear out (in my opinion) too quickly (just under 5 months) I do climb a lot and the first 4 months I was climbing 4 to 5 times a week. The inside of the big toe wore through completely. Now granted, I was learning what to do and how to do it, so my technique was developing and I’m sure I was grinding that place a lot more than I needed to in general. I’ve heard complaints about the rubber not being very grippy and I’d have to agree with that observation. After upgrading to a more expensive and more aggressive shoe for my second pair, I have a better point of reference. As I progressed to V3 and 4 my feet would slip off small toe holds with the origins, and smearing was more difficult than with my new shoes. I think these were great for my first few months of climbing and harder wear climbing V0-V2 routes but would recommend getting a better shoe for the long haul after that.
Great shoe. I use this for indoor bouldering only. I wish there was a size between 11 and 11.5. With street shoes I wear 11.5 (or in slip on styles that only come in whole sizes I wear an 11 comfortably). I bought these in an 11 (44.5 EU) and they are pretty tight even without socks. Once I am climbing I don't notice the tightness very much but when I am off the wall I need to be sitting and I take them off once or twice in a 1.5 hour climbing session.
In the photos I took the heel pic to show where the ruler is starting for the main foot picture.
I love the fit on these if you're looking for a flat, comfort oriented shoe for gym climbing, etc.I think my ideal size would be 1/2 to a full size down from street shoe. However, I found the rubber to be unacceptable. Compared to the Five Ten Stealth C4 rubber I'm used to, or the Vibram XS Edge rubber Scarpa uses on the higher end models, this rubber is quite slippery. I found it very hard to trust my feet in the same way I am used to. For this reason, I cannot recommend these shoes. If you are between this and the Force V, I'd definitely go with that one to get the better rubber.
I ordered this shoe as a winter climbing shoe cause I didn’t want to trash my gym/trad shoes. The rubber is pretty bummy but the shoe is comfortable even with socks(we were wearing them cause it was 8° outside). For anything serious these would be terrible as I’ve also tried them for some sport and they slipped nonstop.
Al principio parecian zapatos de madera por la suela tan dura y nueva. poco a poco se van desgastando y el problema va desapareciendo (o me voy acostumbrando) El zapato como tal es comodo, pero si extraño la suela de mis otros tenis (mas suave)
These were my first pair of climbing shoes. I live in Florida, so most of their time is spent in the gym or on my home walls. Great shoes for the price. Make sure they fit pretty tight when sizing yourself as they have loosened a good half size for me over a few months.
I LOVE these climbing shoes! I use them primarily for gym climbing and bouldering, and they're just as comfortable after 3 hours as they are when I put them on. They broke in quickly, have a firm toe, and have held up well so far. No complaints here!
I got these for wearing/walking around the gym helping my son climb, while still being able to do some climbing myself. My other shoes, when not climbing, have to be taken off because they downturn pretty drastically and annihilate toes when standing flat. These are an extremely comfortable climbing shoe... the 44 fits my 44 foor exactly as I expect a broken in shoe to fit, so I wonder how long they will really fit correctly.
Traction wise, they are actually quite good, with descent sensitivity. Not the best for overhanging routes... otherwise, they are a capable shoe.
