Why We Like The Black Diamond Method Climbing Shoe

For one shoe that can handle it all, we look to the Black Diamond Method Climbing Shoe. The moderate downturn and curvature give us precision and power in the steep, while the stiff midsole and tensioned heel rand offer us support on long vertical pitches. Equipped with Black Diamond's stickiest rubber, this pair offers bite on micro edges and greasy chips, while its molded construction minimizes weight and maximizes comfort.

Poor quality

I've put it through the wringer

The shoes feel fine, but they are constructed very poorly. After only a few months of moderate use the velcro doesnt stay shut, one of velcro straps ripped slightly, and the rubber is coming apart in several places.

Great Shoe but could be better!

I know that most people like there toes curled but my 3rd, 4th and 5th toes are a little bit longer and I don't want to destroy my toes if it is not necessary, I am a Roman profile , I purchased UK 11, I am street shoe size 11 us, and i think that if i would have purchased maybe a UK11.5 could fit better with my feet/toe profile or even a 12UK. The heel is molded like if they took my 3d printed heel it is great, the shoe is really stiff great for small holds but could present a little bit of challenge whit smearing not much of an issue anyways. So the most important thing for people unless you love to crush your feet in my case as I stated i am 11 US and purchased 12 US but i think that a 13 US would feet just great snug but without pain or hot spot on my 3rd or 2nd toe, I noticed that it is ok to feel discomfort but by no means any kind of pain for my taste I need to be comfortable to climb at my max effort and not restrain because of unnecessary pain (note: I WOULD GO FROM MY STREET SHOE SIZE 11 ALL THE WAY UP TO 12.5 OR 13 BECAUSE OF MY ROMAN PROFILE, IF YOU DONT HAVE A ROMAN OR GREEK PROFILE I WOULD THINK THAT THEY JUST FIT GREAT ONLY 1 PLUS SIZE FROM YOUR STREET SHOE SIZE) basically the 11 US is a 10 US) My foot measures 28mm and the shoe as US11 is 27mm I would love this shoe to have only one strap instead of 2 I found the second one to be useless and with the first one doesn't matter how you fit it it will always look baggy in my feet.

I am wearing the shoes

I am wearing the shoes around the house, they are breaking in. I got a half size larger than my shoe size! Can’t wait to try them at the climbing gym.

Bizarre fit

I really like a lot about these, but the fit was bizarre. Maybe not for narrow feet? With the straps on pretty snug, I could literally pull them off my feet. In order to get them tight enough so I couldn’t pull them off, I had to strap them down so tight the buckle left imprints in my skin and was painful. I returned them. Bummed tho, they seemed really nice- rubber seemed sticky and construction seemed high quality.

Love the heel fit. Super comfortable. Sizing varies among BD footwear but now I have a method to my madness.

Good shoe for overhangs or Slab

Bought these after my Momentum's were failing me on overhung route. These are perfect for me, not too aggressive, but enough to hook holds with my toe. Still moderate enough to climb slab or vertical, and you can smear just fine with them. The heel is great too, the heel hooks are a little more solid with these. Ordered same size as my Momentum's and they're a tad snug on one foot. I think they will stretch out fine.

Very comfortable

I got these shoes since my old ones have never really been comfortable. I bought a half size bigger than my street shoes and wore them around the house before taking them climbing. Once I finally took them to the gym I was able to wear them for 30 minutes comfortably. Great shoes with awesome grip and I’m happy to have something comfortable.

Solid gym beater

Price point these shoes hands down do the job! My new go-to indoor boulder beaters. Trying to maintain rubber life on my Instincts & Solutions, I was looking for an aggressive enough shoe to handle 1-2hr indoor boulder sessions 2-3x a week. These pups fix like a dream with the excellent split tongue design and velcro. Easy on- easy off with really comfortable lining. They’ve been handling v4-5’s with great sensitivity and accuracy. Not very stiff sole, but rubber toe for hooks. Used these on ceiling sport routes, TR’d 12-‘s. Can’t say enough goodness for the $$. Many reviews commented to go 1/2 size up. I’m a street 10, order a 10, and they are snug, like my other aggressive shoes. 1/2 size up for more comfort less accuracy? That’s the risk of online ordering. No regrets. It’s been about 4 week with minimal stretch but aren’t killing my feet wearing them for 1/2hr to 1hr intervals.
