As a beginner climber I was looking for a pair of shoes that weren’t to aggressive but still offered somewhat of a curve. These shoes do just that. I’ve been consistently climbing with them for the past 6 months, getting outdoors 2-3 times a week and indoor any other chance I got and they’ve held up fabulously. From toe and heel hooks to smears on slab, I feel confident with my feet in these shoes as they offer great rubber durability.
These are a great pair to purchase in regards to price point, lightweight and reliability. Given that the shoe is mostly leather, I would suggest downsizing as they will eventually stretch but the lace up feature on these help out with that a lot.
