Why We Like The Momentum Lace Climbing Shoe

If the Black Diamond Momentum Hook-and-Loop is perfect for beginners, then we believe that the Momentum Lace Climbing Shoe is 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 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 runs small, so we recommend sizing up for best fit
  • Item #BLD00QQ

So glad I got climbing shoes!!!

I loved climbing with these. Compared to street shoes they make a HUGE difference. I like the color scheme, and the two loops on the heel are great for putting on the shoes and taking them off. As a size 10-11 Asics street shoe, the size 11 was a little too large.

Fantastic, immediately comfortable

Bought these in men's 9.5 for cracks and chill climbs. First time using them was an entire day on sandstone, toes didn't hurt, snug where it needed to be, grippy. Wear men's 10 in running shoes for those looking for help w shoe sizing.

Fit well. sized up to 13.5 from 13 street shoes due to square toe box on my foot. Comfortable, snug. Cheap for good quality!

Good shoes - sized more like street shoes

I got these shoes for comfy all- day shoes. I like them, but theybare tighter than i was expecting. It seems like BD sizing is closer to street shoe sizing than other brands I've tried. Ive usually gotten climbing shoes a size or two smaller than my street shoes but in BDs Im learning to size closer (or for comfy shoes even equal) to my street shoe size.

Very good climbing shoe!

The laces do a very good job of forming the shoe around your foot and the rubber on the shoe sticks to anything, making it easy to stay on the wall. This is the first climbing shoe that i have tried and i am very pleased with it!

They're pretty good for beginner

They're pretty good for beginner shoes and the grip feels more comfortable than rental shoes

Great gym shoes

I burn through gym shoes quicker than others…. So these are perfect! Not for your overhung outdoor project, but definitely good enough for some 5.11 gym routes

Amazing shoes!

I’m a new climber, but the rental shoes at my local rock wall were killing my feet. I picked these up and just tried them out on my local wall about 20 minutes ago. Night and day difference on my feet and my ability to get into position. I highly recommend these to someone new who wants their own gear.

Great Casual/Beginner shoe

Comfortable easy to wear shoe. The lace up version provides for an adjustable fit, no pressure spots after 3-4 hrs boldering. The grip was solid and I have confidence in they will stick when i need them to. Overall it is a great casual boldering beginner shoe, Comfortable and "grippy".
