good shoes!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ali from NC on Tuesday, November 28, 2017my wife has started using these shoes and so-far seems to like them! they are comfortable and have a good grip. worth the price!
Great second pair of shoesVerified Buyer Reviewed by Rissawr from Pennsylvania on Sunday, November 26, 2017My first pair of climbing shoes was worn through after 2 years of use and I was looking for new shoes that were a little more aggressive. I also like velcro better than laces because I'm lazy and I don't feel like tying and retying my shoes between climbs at the crag. I've been climbing in these shoes for a few weeks and so far they've worked out really well! They're pretty comfortable and I don't have the issue of my heel slipping out like you sometimes do with more aggressive shoes. I noticed that with these shoes I can stand on tiny edges and barely-there footholds, which would have been sketchy at best with my old shoes (super exciting!). They fit true to size, too, which was awesome. Exactly what I was looking for as my second pair of climbing shoes!
Good!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rahoohee from California on Thursday, November 16, 2017I've had these shoes for a couple of weeks now. They're great, I have way better grip on the wall and they've really helped me to improve my climbing. The backs of them really rub against the backs of my feet which is uncomfortable, but I'm hoping they'll stretch soon. I am a size 7-7.5 street shoe women's, and I ordered a size 37.5 and it's perfect. I would definitely buy again!
ComfyVerified Buyer Reviewed by JoJo from Bangkok on Tuesday, November 14, 2017Love these climbing shoes. They are not too aggressive yet stick nicely to all kinds of holds on all kinds of terrain. Love them!!!
Versatile shoe with minimal discomfortVerified Buyer Reviewed by Balegs from California on Monday, October 9, 2017Got 37.5 for a snug fit. Usually wear a 39 in regular shoes. I have wide feet and the shoe's velcro straps adjusted the tightness for me to make any discomfort a minimal issue. Great grip when trying to place feet on small holds. Used mainly for gym bouldering. Great for those who want to move up from the La Sportiva Mythos. Only wish this wasn't in pink. Sigh.
