Amp up your technical prowess.

There are some climbs that you simply cannot power through. Most, if not all, demand graceful footwork, precise placements, and even downright painful jams. Red Chili made the Men's Amp Climbing Shoe specifically for these sorts of technical climbs. It has a slight downturn for that special touch of power that vertical to steep routes require, and the slingshot rand promotes flattened toes for comfortable crack climbing. Vibram's XS Grip rubber gives this shoe's sole reliable traction on any rock, from slippery limestone to calcite-covered sandstone. The synthetic upper has a rubber toe cap to reduce stretch, and the 3/4-length midsole resists slippage and ensures moderate stiffness.

Pretty nice!

    I got these shoes for really cheap, wasn't expecting much out of them but so far they've pleasantly surprised me. They're perfect gym shoes; comfy and surprisingly sticky. The colors are pretty vibrant so you'll stick out like a sore thumb wearing them. Hopefully they'll fade over time.

    Surprisingly sticky

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I picked these slippers up on a whim for gym climbing and maybe a few after work boulder seshes. Immediately I was impressed with how comfortable these are even at a size below my street size. The rubber is plenty sticky for most practical purposes and I feel confident when edging on smaller chips or heel hooks. All and all these are a great pair of rock shoes, especially at the current price.

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really liked these shoes. I was a bit nervous switching from my Scarpa and Fiveten shoes to give these a shot. I had never heard anything about Red Chili's products much, but now I'm into them. I like the Vibram enough to play in the gym with them, but I really prefer FiveTen's Stealth rubber. Other than that, the shoes are fantastic! They have held up to the regular abuse of gym climbing and fooling around making up routes and other shenanigans.

    I got a half size down from my Nike shoes and they fit perfectly after the break-in period. They do stretch, but not by much.

    Gym Trainer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Bought these shoes for a warm up/comfort shoe and was quite surprised by the grip that they have. They edge real nice and with the slight downturn to them I'm confident enough to take them on harder, more inverted climbs without having to worry about blowing feet off of smaller or greasier holds. Haven't sent any cracks in them, but they have the protection where you need it. Breaking them in was a bit of a struggle for me. I wear a 9.5 and ordered my street shoe size, lots of hots spots and were quite tight on my left foot, which is just under a half a size larger than my right. Nothing you wouldn't expect, but once they finally broke in they fit like a glove. For a more aggressive fit, I don't think you'll need to go any farther than a half a size down and street shoe size for a more comfortable feel. I should add that after they broke in, my right foot does have a little more room than I want it to.

    Fit is a little big

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

    I bought these in 9.5, and they are a little bigger than I thought they would be. They will work nicely for thin cracks where I cannot jam my whole foot, but they may not work well for sport climbing endeavors.

    Soft, snug, and sticky.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was looking for a pair of shoes for bouldering training. I prefer them soft and comfortable (over performance). These pair were out of expectation. They are very soft, comfortably snugged onto my feet and downturned. I was even surprised at how they can be both comfortable and downturned. Their stickyness is also more than trustworthy. Time to adjust my perception on what kind of surface I could step on to.. As an Asian most European shoes have a larger heelbox than my heel. These ones, too. The heelbox is slightly larger. If I squeeze around my heels I could feel the air. But they work better than my la sportiva miura as in they do not move when I jump off from the wall. In general I am more than satisfied with these shoes. Will likely to purchase again when they're worn out.

    Good performance and quality!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I picked these up a few weeks ago and have been enjoying them in the gym. The rubber on them is good, even better than I expected. They edge well and have plenty of grip for smearing. I have not jammed them in a crack yet but i expect the performance will be great when needed. They are ever so slightly turned down but it is so minimal it is almost not even noticeable making them more comfortable wearing them for longer periods of time. I would recommend sizing down from your true shoe size at least a half size if not a full size to get a nice precise fit, although there should not be too much stretch since they have a synthetic upper. Overall a good shoe that i would recommend to someone looking for a good not overly aggressive slipper.

    Got it just for the gym

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

    Needed another pair of cheap shoes for climbing plastic. I wear a 9.5 for every shoe I've ever owned: TC Pros, Miuras, and other cheap gym shoes. Got the same for this one and it felt a bit tight my first night in them, but it started to soften up nicely by the end of gym session. I won't expect to break in or stretch much more later since it's a synthetic upper. The rubber gripped the holds better than I expected, so I might have to try it outside sometime. There's a slight downturn to them. Enough to make splitters painful, but not so much to make steep routes easy.

    Can anyone provide some advice in regards to sizing this shoe? I would be interested in using this shoe for long moderate multipitch.

    Arin, I will work with you on the sizing, to make sure we get it right without accruing return shipping fees. But, they are synthetic, so they won't stretch very much. I would start with your street shoe size, and go from their.
