Versatility for the vertical.
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.

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.

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!
