Why We Like The Black Diamond Method S Climbing Shoes

When getting vertical, we pull on the Black Diamond Method S Climbing Shoe. To help us hold tension in the steep, this shoe features a soft midsole and downturned profile for technical footwork and powerful toe drives, while the rubber wrapped toe box and molded heel cater to precarious hooks, enhancing precision and confidence. Plus, the high-friction rubber delivers a secure bite on both rock and plastic, helping us trust our feet on the most micro of micro feet.

The perfect climbing shoe!

These shoes fit my foot the best! I’m really impressed by how sticky the rubber is! They suction to my heel and the point is so good on the toe!

First pair of shoes that actually fits properly

I’ve had my wife try on 13 different pairs of climbing shoes to find one that properly fits her foot. I got this for her as a Christmas gift, full expecting to be needing to return them, and to my surprise they actually fit perfectly. The rubber is super sticky and has helped her get a lot more confidence in her foot placement. Can’t recommend them enough!

Decent but not amazing

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I got these shoes because I was looking for a comfortable, decently aggressive indoor bouldering shoe. I got my street shoe size, and the fit was good. The fit is unique in that the tightest part is all the way around the arch, where the shoe really hugs your foot, however, it widens at the toe instead of squeezing your toes like most bouldering slippers. In fact, the fit was my favorite part of the shoe. What I didn't love was, well, the rest. A bouldering slipper this wide should be comfy, but I found that the rubber over and around the toes was just too hard and inflexible for comfort. After about an hour of climbing, the rubber warms up and softens, but that's a long time to wait. Secondly, this is billed as a soft, sensitive modern bouldering shoe, but the sole rubber is just too thick for that. I weigh about 135 lbs, and I found it quite clunky and insensitive, and not very flexible either. I don't need it to be a Drago or anything, but a little more bend at the midsole would help. You might not have these problems if you weigh over 150 lbs like my girlfriend. Her weight helps her bend the shoe as well as feel the holds underfoot. For me, though, this shoe is underwhelming.

Super excited about these

Like most other people have said, I recommend going up a half size from street size unless you can deal with really tight. I wear a women’s 9 and got the 9.5 and they’re a little small, but an appropriate amount so even if they expand they’ll still be the right size. Moderately aggressive, feel durable, and give me a lot more precision than the Momentums. The upper part where you insert your foot is stretchy material and has one strap so I am wondering how they’ll stretch in width over time, super comfortable to slide on though. I can’t wait to use these outside to see how they hold up, they’re fantastic in the gym!

Great Shoe

These ran small for me. Per my experience consider .5 to 1 size larger than what you normally would wear. I cannot speak to the longevity of them yet, but the first few days of climbing they have lived up to their expectations. They also look cool too with a slight purple tint.

Favourite new shoe

Very good out of the box should be a small and quick break in period, very tight feeling but still comfortable, really great feeling heel

awesome fit

softer shoe which i thoroughly enjoy would probably blow out pretty fast if you don’t have the best footwork but overall fits like a glove and is one of my favorite shoes on the market
