    A classic for the classics.

    Show those young "senders" how to smear, step, edge, and climb crack like a legend in the Scarpa Men's Helix Climbing Shoe. An all-time classic, the Helix was around for the first ascents on Moonlight Buttress and Astroman. With a flat profile and relatively symmetric shape, this shoe is extremely comfortable on multi-pitches. Its suede upper stretches slightly to conform to your foot, and the Flexan midsole gives ultra thin support suitable for intermediates in the gym. The Helix's only updates include a padded tongue for comfier crack climbing, and the Vibram XS Edge rubber sole that stays grippy for seasons.

    Scarpa Helix

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 40

    These are my first pair of climbing shoes and so far so good! I'm used to running shoes with a lot of room so tight climbing shoes were a new concept for me. They are definitely tight but I haven't gotten any blisters or had any issues so far. They do leave blue marks on feet from the color of the suede. I'm a womens size 7.5 and I got a size 40 in the mens shoe.

    Scarpa Helix

    Great Beginner's Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 43.5

    I bought the helix as my first pair of climbing shoes, and so far they have been great. I have used them on average around 5 days a week every week for 2 months now. I have access to a great indoor gym, and that is all that I have used them for so far, but I have plans to take them outdoors at some point. The edge of the toe has worn down a little bit, making it more rounded and a bit scraggly, but it still holds just as well as when I first got them. The laces allow me to tighten or loosen wherever I need on my foot, allowing me to dial in how tight I want them However, they have stretched a bit throughout the season to the point where I can wiggle my toes a little bit in them, but they still are toughing the ends of my toes. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone who wants to get into climbing as they are very comfortable; I wear these for 3-4 hours at a time without having to take them off.

    1 more reason to love Scarpa! These shoes fit perfectly, not too tight but definitely not loose. The laces really let you dial in the perfect fit and they fit like a glove. I've taken these on a range of climbs up to 5.10 (on rock) and have not been disappointed. If you are looking for a great intermediate shoe that is comfortable and not too expensive then look no further

    Ah Sweet Relief!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    After ten years away I return to climbing only to find that my tolerance for foot pain has vanished along with my desire to climb hard and scary or long and heavy right now. What's a guy with narrow feet who wants comfortable shoes for moderate routes from Smith Rock to Yosemite to do? Buy these beauties. Ironically, my first "beginner shoe." Gotta love the price point!

    Here is what I wanted: soft, flat last, laces, multipitch all day comfort. I knew that I would loose some edging but I would gain some smearing...yes. Heel hooking? Overhang toe pointing? Nah. And to be fair, should I want performance at the price of pain I've got some Stingers and some Kaukulators waiting if I get all my mojo back for overhung sandstone or trad racks in the valley.

    The shoes are soft, comfortable, and gentle. But their not bunny slippers. Some toe curl for a good fit but in a way that seems right not cruel. Given the rubber and the last I went with between a full and a half size down to start so there is room to stretch but even with my narrow-ish feet the laces are have plenty of room before they will meet. They lace up in a snug and reassuring fit and if needed I could really crank them down. On the rock they are soft with good feel. They smear confidently and are joyful on slabs. I did have some problems popping off smaller slick holds on general Smith Rock junk but chalked that up to habitually trying to edge instead of smear and climbing in the near dark to clean my partner's last lead of the day. On the plus side, once it was too dark to really see foot holds I stuck to just about everything. And my feet didn't hurt. Joy. True Joy.

    Slabs and 10b range? YES!!! Crimpy technical edges? Maybe if you can stay on the smearing side of things. Overhangs? Maybe. Cracks? I wouldn't want to jam in these for long but I haven't tried yet, people climb cracks in Mythos so...

    No long term beta but in my experience, other than slippers, most of the shoes I've had don't change much in performance even if they bag out a little. But I'll come back and update.
