The BEST all around climbing shoe - I have been using Moccasyms for years. They are my guiding shoe of choice due to their sensitivity, comfort, ease of on/off at belays. I also use this shoe religiously for sandstone crack climbing. Their slipper design means they don't interfere with inserting your foot into all sizes of cracks!

Brands I'd also recommend: 5.10 5x

These are probably the most comfortable climbing shoes I have ever worn (in 10+ years of climbing)! The last is EXTREMELY soft making these a good shoe for lapping, training, or bouldering. Definitely not the go to shoe for slab edging performance but they perform admirably on most other angles. If you are looking for something that you can wear all night at the local climbatorium you can rejoice, for your prayers have been answered. Get these shoes if you're tired of the pain game! Stealth rubber, 'nough said.

Great all around Shoe! Shoes is great, I am a fairly new climber and these shoes helped me to improve quite a bit, The rubber is very sticky, and the shoes, once broken in feel like a second pair of skin. I wear a ten and went down to a nine, and they seem to fit just about right, still a little snug but I have only climbed in them 8 times or so.

Brands I'd also recommend: any 5.10 climbing shoe

These shoes rock! I used this shoe on Volcanic, Granite, Crack, Sandstone, Limestone, and Buildering in St. George Utah. I have a pair in size 10 M as my comfort shoes for bouldering as well as moderate sport climbs. I have another pair in size 9.5 M for my 5.11 and up climbs. This shoe is Bombproof!! I've been using the Moccasym for the past six years and now I work for Zappos.com as a Merchandising Assistant for Outdoor Footwear department. My goal is to always have your size in this shoe, we carry every size Five Ten makes in this style.

Great shoe for a beginner climber. This is my first climbing shoe and I love it thus far. Its been great for bouldering, too. My only complaint is that it doesn't really stretch as much as some people have suggested. I've worn it more than 10 times now and it is still moderately uncomfortable (to the extent of being painful) on one leg. I bought one size smaller than my regular shoe size, and would suggest new climbers trying half a size smaller to start with. Overall, its a good slipper and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Great training shoe - Buy them as small as you can. They will hurt in the beginning, but quickly stretch to mold to your foot. Then they're like wearing sticky gloves on your feet. Great training shoe because they force you "smedge" hard. Not the greatest edgers, but great for smearing.

from Manhattan, Connecticut

I am the definition of an ass-backwards climber. For years, I have been climbing up boulders and rock faces created from construction blasting. I only recently discovered that what I've been doing is called "bouldering" - as well as solo free-climbing (as I often can't help myself and end up climbing 100ft rock faces without pros), and a primitive version of solo top-roping (when I decide said cliffs are too dangerous and use elaborate knots and the reverse of a rappelling technique I learned at an adventure camp when I was 12.) I am now 29. Until a few months ago, I lived in Manhattan and had some favorite rocks and boulders deep within the ramble of Central Park that I would climb up and down on weekends or in the morning. Point of my backstory - I knew very little about climbing, other than that I was very good at it and loved it. But a few months ago, I found myself stuck in Connecticut at my parent's condo - the entire complex has been created by blasting massive amounts of granite to create views and levels. Result - incredible rock faces. With some free time on my hands, I decided to look into getting some more legit equipment and pros to take advantage of this incredible terrain. I've climbed in converse all my life. To the point where I've done more than a just a few unroped free solo 5'7 climbs in the gunks in my trusty chucks. I was ready to get real shoes. Sooooo... I did massive amount of research, read every article, book, and review known to man, and finally settled on the Moccasyms, mostly because of their great reviews, easy on/off features, and weight (I backpack frequently and often wish I had something better that hiking boots for the many rock faces and boulders I pass on my travels). All the Zappos reviews of this shoe recommend to size down, so I ordered a 6 and a 5.5 womens. As a novice to climbing shoes, when they came home and I tried them on, I thought "holy s**t, these are worse then Chinese foot binding. Foolishly, I listened to the instructions on the 510 box that say that shoes should never hurt and street size is just a starting point, so I sent them back in exchange for a 7.5 womens. I am a 6. The new pair arrived and still hurt, but they were tolerable. Flash forward: I now know a tremendous amount about bouldering, climbing, and shoe fit. I ordered the Moccasyms again in a 6 and am slowly breaking them in. I tried a billion different other shoes (thanks Zappos awesome return policy and free shipping) in the meantime. The Moccasyms were still the best, and the customers reviews kept me hooked. However, I still own my size 7.5 pair as well. And honestly, I love them. So much. I can wear them with socks in the winter and still feel every edge. The first day I climbed in them (as opposed to my Chucks), I felt like I was cheating - I could get toe holds and edge and smear in ways I'd previously thought were impossible. Thanks to the Moccasyms, my bouldering is much safer - they are so responsive that I can find tons of problems only feet above the ground, instead of climbing restlessly all over and up looking for big footholds. My size sixes hurt less and less as I break them in. But if you are as ignorant and primitive with your climbing experience and technique as I was, I say get a much bigger pair and a tiny, recommended size super-painful pair. With two pairs, I can climb all day, switching to my 7.5s when my 6s are beyond killing me and yet not losing much in the way of the shoe's features at all. Even in the big size, I can grip anything, smear all over the place, and edge with incredible responsiveness. I feel like I'm in bare feet, even with socks - an awesome thing for bouldering in below-freezing weather. From I've gathered, the Moccasyms are like the perfect climbing shoe. I see experts wearing them in magazines all the time. But until I'm good enough that I can handle the pain of the sizing recommended by them, it's great to also have a nice comfy size that I can train with when my feet give out. Either way, these shoes have changed my life!
