    To endeavor or not to endeavor.

    Admittedly, everyone's got a type (of climb), you know—tall and leggy, short and stout, or somewhere in-between. However, the Butora Men's Wide Fit Endeavor Climbing Shoe doesn't exactly have a preference. In fact, the Wide Fit Endeavor is built to tackle just about any kind of climb without compromising performance on account of the shape, size, or profile of the climb.

    Thanks to the Endeavor's slightly asymmetrical toe shape, this shoe has a natural feel and is equipped with a triple fork webbing construction that provides a unique and personalized fit. Additionally, the shoe features a hybrid upper that consists of a synthetic micro fiber and natural leather that provide shape and breathability while two-piece tongue encourages optimal ventilation combined with the Poron memory foam that takes pressure away from the straps. The moisture-wicking hemp lining provides a comfortable microclimate for your foot and the 3D-injection midsole, complete with sticky butyl Butora F5 rubber sole ensures day-long comfort and traction—no matter the quality of rock. So whether your journeys take you to the New River Gorge or to Moab, the Endeavor provides pinnacle performance, power, and precision.

    Decent First Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these as my first pair of climbing shoes - I got 10.5 US and usually run at a 10 in my street shoes - the fit feels tight but not uncomfortable. I've been climbing with them for about six months now and they've held up decently - a bit more wear around the toes than I'd expect perhaps, but nothing major. The straps on the top are not the best - they work themselves loose a lot and the Velcro isn't the most secure in the world.

    Now for some impressions. For a beginning climber looking for a cheap, comfortable shoe to wear in the gym and learn to climb in, these are great. They are not super harsh on the feet and you can wear them all day without getting too sore (and the straps make them easy to pop in and out of). They claim the hemp lining cuts down on odor - maybe initially, but they'll have the typical funk quickly enough.

    So why only three stars? Basically, I've found they don't scale with your climbing very well. For perspective, I'm projecting 5.10d (top-rope) and V4 in the gym now and the shoes are consistently the element that is letting me down - I have trouble with trusting small footholds and working slabs, and I have to find ways around the limitations of the shoes. The benefits of comfort mean there is a ceiling in their effectiveness when you start getting into harder climbs. If you see yourself looking to climb into the 5.11s or boulder harder, these aren't necessarily the best shoes.

    This is exacerbated if you climb outdoors at all. These are really not good shoes if you leave the gym and start to climb on real rock - they struggle to grip even decent footholds and become a real problem outside. This leads to constantly worrying about the feet, to overgripping, and to a lot of unexpected feet blowing. The design of the toe is notl very precise and finding the accuracy to grip little divots or to accurately place a delicate foot is nigh on impossible.

    All that said, for a first shoe, I feel they are a good value for the price. The above-mentioned limitations are frustrating, but if you are just getting into climbing you may not run into them. But if you are looking for a shoe that can grow with you, I'd look elsewhere.

    Fantastic Comfy Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Picked up a pair today and climbed in them indoors.
    I walk around in a size 13 street shoe, and got the size 12 Endeavor in wide. The fit lengthwise is about the same as a a Scarpa Force V in 46.

    These things are amazing for a flat shoe. In a lot of respects it looks like a basic beginner climbing shoe, but the details are fantastic. I get a skin-tight no air fit. I've got a pretty extreme Morton's Toe, so I need that nice soft faux suede for my toes to stick up. The toe is great. I'm able to put a lot of good pressure on it, and at least on day 1, I get a lot of great edging. The fit is good enough for my newbie heelhooks and toe hooks.

    I think it is a fantastic shoe and value. I think they're perfect for what they are. I'm going to go 4 stars instead of 5, because these are still a flat shoe and you may be able to get better performance from a more aggressive shoe.

    Size runs small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I really like these climbing shoes from a materials and construction perspective but unfortunately they ran really small.
    For perspective, I normally wear a men's size 11 street sneaker and a 10 1/2 wide dress shoe. I ordered three different makes/styles of climbing shoe for myself and my two son's all in a size 11 1/2 (we all have the same size foot). Two of the three fit all of us and the Butoras fit none of us. Big toe was so crammed and pressure on the top of the toe was uncomfortable. I think I'd need a 12 1/2 to be comfortable in these shoes.

    Yes, size up a half-size.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 9.5
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I have yet to really put them to work, but I figured I'd leave a review about the sizing, since I had a little trouble finding that: I fit an 8.5 to 9.5 American, and a 42 or 42.5 European. The Butora USA sizing video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyVWIntOv_g ) says to go up a half size from your street shoe for an aggressive fit, and a whole size for an "all day" fit. I knew for sure I wanted an aggressive fit, so I tried a size 9 and 9.5 (42 and 42.5). The 9.5s ended up fitting really well, and I'm seriously excited to get outside and engage some nature.

    They say the synthetic/leather upper, sole, etc., will not stretch even after years of use, so it's best to find a fit that does not cause pain, because it if it does, it will always cause pain. Then you're gonna have a bad time.

    They are a korean brand, made in Korea. Maybe that explains the need to size up? Professional reviews seem to place them as mid to upper quality climbing shoe with a price that's ~$40 below other comparable shoes, so that's what attracted me to them.

    Love them!

      I have wide feet and these are the answer, feel good and climb good! They work better on rock than in the gym so they are my dedicated outdoor shoe. Took a few sends before my toes started to feel it as well!

      My go to shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 10.5
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      I've been climbing for almost 20 years and wore 5.10 shoes for most of that time. I recently tried this shoe on at a local gym demo and found it much more comfortable than my Anasazi velcros and climbs every bit as good. For $98, you can't beat that price for what this shoe does. The rubber is holding up excellently and I get all the grip that my Anasazis gave me. I use this for bouldering in the gym, running laps on the auto-belay and at my local Smith Rock crag, edging is no longer a chore.

      Bang for your Buck

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 10

      At the $98.00 price point you a very nice shoe that climbs like a $130 shoe. I would compare the shoe to the Katana, but not as aggressive. The first thing I noticed was the arch of the shoe. It feels good compared to other flat shoes. I like the hemp lining, It cuts down on shoe odor and helps the shoe hold its shape. I like the hard edge of the shoe and how the poly band that goes across the toe box keeps the shoe from widening over time. I use the shoe as my gym training shoe, face climbing shoe and moderate/easy trad shoe. I sized the shoe 1/2 larger than my street shoe for am all day comfort fit.
      I would recommend this shoe for anyone looking to purchase their first pair of shoes or an all around do everything shoe.
      I have a 9.5 street shoe and the 10 was a good fit. If I wanted a tighter more performance fit I think the 9.5 would have been perfect.

      Endeavor Review

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 10
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      The Endeavor is my go to all around shoe. For it's price point, I really can't find a better made shoe; and it has a hemp lining, which is really nice, so they don't smell as much.

      Value

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 48.5
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      There is no better shoe at this price.
      It has a stiff mid-sole with soft durable rubber.
      It has alternating, multi-angled straps to allow a versatile fit for different types of climbing.
      The simple narrow heel fit like someone spray painted sticky rubber on your heel, as opposed to other shoes that have made me feel like I'm jamming my heel into a rubber box on the back of an old sock.
      I wore it all day the second time I tried it out.
