Endeavor Tight Fit Climbing Shoe
You could be jamming crack one day and bouldering the next, and the Butora Men's Tight Fit Endeavor Climbing Shoe will still be underfoot. An all-arounder, the Endeavor feels good on multi-pitches, intermediate boulder problems, and most gym routes. Butora built this shoe with a moisture-managing German split-leather upper, stretch-reducing PU strips, and an odor-resisting hemp lining. The Endeavor's updates for this year include Poron's padding at the breathable mesh tongue for more comfort in cracks. Underfoot, the Endeavor features a stiff midsole to ensure structure on dime-sized edges, and Butora's butyl F5 rubber sole sticks to slabs and edges equally for smearing or toe-powering.

Work Good, Small for Size
- I've used it several times
These were my second pair of climbing shoes. They work as well as the others I've tried, and are probably a better shoe than I am climber. I have a long way to go before I feel like a better shoe would make much difference. As far as sizing, I have narrow feet and wear 10.5 street shoes. I bought these in size 11. The fit is agressive, but still quite comfortable for my particular foot shape. I used them for single pitch, indoor, bouldering, etc... I ended up inheriting a different and looser fitting shoe from someone that I prefer for mutlipitch and more casual outings. 1/2 size up for agressive fit, 1 full size up for casual fit is my suggestion. Just remember, the gold ones are for narrow feet. I eventually ended up giving my first pair to my son. Since I like performance and have the sizing figured out, I'm now back to buy another size 11, agressive fitting pair for myself for the indoor season. I guess that makes them my 2nd and 4th pair of climbing shoes.

Awesome beginner shoe
- I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
We were having trouble finding shoes that sized high enough up in womens, so we decided to try this in the mens narrow sizing. It was a great fit! And these shoes have some nice features for the price, like the hemp lining. The tongue also feels great!

Great beginner shoe
I bought these shoes not too long after I had gotten into climbing. I rented shoes a handful of times and decided that I needed my own for comfort and performance. I tried multiple pairs on, but bought these based off of reviews I had found elsewhere. These are a basic shoe but perform very well. The better I get at climbing, the better these become. For sizing, I wear a 9.5 street shoe and bought these in a 9.5 and the fit is fantastic.

You never forget your first love
- I've used it several times
- Runs small
- Size Bought
- 5` 11"

I'm pretty new to climbing - in fact, when I met a sales rep for Butora at my local gym I'd only been doing it for two months. At first I tried on the wide fit endeavor, but something just wasn't right. The rep, with his bright blue eyes and silky blonde hair, felt around my feet and ascertained where the problems were. He then whipped out these shoes - the narrow fit endeavor - and lo and behold, they fit me to perfectly. I particularly like the hemp lining - if you've got smelly feet (I'm not afraid to admit it!) then you'll love the fact that hemp is naturally antifungal - or in my case, 'anti funkal.' So far I've been using these for a couple of months and they've held up to my sloppy foot work so they seem very durable as well. I'd definitely recommend giving them a try!

How did the sizing work for you?
