    The next step.

    If the Black Diamond Momentum Hook-and-Loop is perfect for beginners, then the Men's Momentum Lace Climbing Shoe would be the next step. Although it still boasts the same comfortable, flat last with neutral asymmetry as the hook-and-loop version, the Momentum Lace features a stiffer flex and a tighter fit to give you slightly more precision. This shoe best serves climbers who have a smarter technical prowess than most beginners, but not the strength necessary for overhung climbs yet.  
    • Comfortable climbing shoe for beginner and intermediate climbers
    • Unique knit upper enhances breathability and decreases stretch
    • NeoFriction rubber molded onto upper for long-lasting traction
    • Flat last and low asymmetry assures all-day comfort
    • Item #BLD00QQ

    Great comfy shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    When I first tried these on I was surprised at how comfortable they were. You could definitely climb all day without taking these off. One thing I noticed was that I slipped a lot easier than I did on my La Sportiva Futura's but for the price of these shoes I can't really complain.

    All-over durable shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    A perfect shoe for the seasoned vet who wants something that will hold up or the beginner who wants to find a durable shoe for a good price. And it's neutral/slightly aggressive downturn will handle big walls and some bouldering.

    Comfy beginner shoes!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Really new to climbing and these are what I was told to grab by a friend. I love how they fit compared to other shoes I've tried on. Climbed for multiple hours each day and no foot pains what-so-ever! Great price for what you get!

    Lace is Ace

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Not as much stretch to the synthetic tops but boy what a shoe! cracks are great, smearing is a tad skeptical but i'm willing to try again! for being a moderate style shoe it's versatile. I'd recommend this to any beginning climbers. Either the lace or the velcro.

    Surprisingly Well Made

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Got a chance to use these and they're pretty rad. I was a bit skeptical at first as Black Diamond's line of shoes is pretty new still, but was pleasantly surprised with my experience. I'll still stick to the La Sportiva's that I have, but if you're interested in these they're a great option. Good fit.

    Super Comfy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These fit well, are super comfy and I can wear them all day at the crag or in the gym (I've actually forgotten that I was wearing them, and kept them on for hours on end while just hanging out in Big Cottonwood Canyon). Great for toprope and lead if you aren't doing anything too overhanging or technical. The rubber grips well still and the laces allow me to crank them tight for more aggressive climbs when needed!

    True to size? If I wear 12 for street shoes, do I need to size up?


    Great question. From my personal experience you should be just fine with your street shoe size, and you may even want to go a half a size down if you've been in a number of shoes before and want a little more of an aggressive fit.

    Hope that helps, but feel free to reach out to me at
