    Initial impressions - best first shoe!

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

    Disclaimer: I'm a super beginner (climbed 2-3 times) but I take new sports very seriously and read a lot about gear to make sure I buy the right thing that will help me progress.
    I had a super hard time finding a shoe that'd fit. I tried like a dozen models and I thought something was wrong either with my feet (street size 11.5 US egyptian foot) or with larger sizes of every manufacturer - nothing I tried according to manufacturers' guidelines (or even half a size up) would fit. Or I thought that my understanding of "fit" was poor and that it should really be painful (even though all the articles and people told me that it should not be painful, I thought maybe the understanding of pain was different for climbers)
    Out of frustration, I tried a slightly more expensive shoe (of size 11 and 2/3 haha nice one Scarpa) - and oh my, it clicked instantly, I understood right away that this is the fit everyone describes as perfect - tight but not painful, with the big toe touching and feeling springy but not too curled, and I can really feel that all of my foot's strength is focused in the toe area.
    I tried these shoes for 2 hours in the gym (bouldering and climbing) and was very impressed how I was able to stand on very small holds and how secure I felt, compared to rental shoes (evolv) I used before. The shoes definitely need some breaking in as I had to take them off a few times because of some pain in the middle of the foot (perhaps due to the shape of the sole), but other than that I feel that it's gonna enable me to progress really well and will be the most comfortable as it breaks in a little.

    The right fit!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    My GF and I were having an incredibly hard time finding a shoe that fit for her, she has a slightly wider foot than most women I guess. Finally, after a recommendation from a fellow gearhead, we convinced her to try a men's shoe and she actually loved the fit on these. The slightly wider last is perfect for her foot and it is a shoe that she can climb in all day. Colors are very gender neutral so there is no problem at all really. Great shoe for everyone!

    Successful First Climb

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

    I got these shoes for my brother who is relatively new to climbing and needed a second pair of shoes while his first pair is being re-soled. He wanted to give a pair with a hook-and-loop closure style a try since his other pair are lace-ups. He was able to try them out recently right out of the box at the granite slabs of Donner Summit, before winter sets in. He enjoyed the ease with which he could put them on, and mentioned that he preferred the hook and loop closure to lace-ups because they were easier to adjust. Mostly he was stoked about how "grippy" they felt on the thin granite footholds. He is looking forward to his next opportunity to get out and use them!

    So far so good!

      I bought these shoes for myself because A.) I have big feet for a woman (I wear a 41) and B.) I hate all the colors that are used in women's shoes. I love these shoes. They are an awesome neutral beginner shoe. I originally had La Sportiva Tarantulace in women's and I felt like I just kept slipping off the wall. With these, the grip is much better and I feel way more stable. They are also way more comfortable. I highly recommend these for anyone just beginning or looking for a more neutral type of climbing shoe. Happy climbing!
