Great beginner shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I climbed in these shoes for 1.5 years in a gym environment only. 6 months at 1-2 times a week of top rope climbing and 1 year at 5 times a week bouldering. Wore a hole in both toes about 1 week ago.
Very comfortable shoe! I wear a size 9 shoe and I fitted these at an 8.5 for a tighter fit.
I will probably buy another pair for climbing at the gym but I am also looking for a more aggressive shoe for bouldering.

Taken just prior to rapp'n some 120' down to the next rappel station just below North Rabbit Ear summit, Las Cruces, NM. Shoes made the downward journey much easier to get a grip on.

great for your first shoe

I run a climbing club at my school and to all the noobies I recommend shoes like these, we also rent them out so it gives them a chance to try them on cheap ( a big factor for your first shoe) not to aggressive, a lace up system for the outdoors and over all comfortable. get these or something like these until you figure out what you want more of from your climbing shoe.

Great beginner shoe.

First of all I believe this shoe is identical to the Evolv Defy velcro. This was my first pair of climbing shoes and they preformed great. Sure there are better shoes on the market, but these are the perfect beginner shoe. These are crazy comfortable, very durable, and will preform great on most routes. Honestly, if you are new to climbing there is no reason to spend the money on a shoe that you can not utilize. This is a great introductory pair of rock climbing shoes.

Great beginner shoe.

I just ordered a pair of these in a size 7.0 because I am female and wear a size 8.5, and because i was told they were mens sizes. The shoes were much too small, couldn't fit my foot in at all, and my sive seven footed friend could fit in them perfectly shoes, so NO, THESE ARE NOT IN MENS SIZES. THEY ARE IN WOMENS SIZES.
