Good starter shoe, well priced and very comfortable. Good smearing performance but the edging is less than impressive. They get loose and the edges wear off very quickly. Size these equal to your street shoe size, or a half size larger for comfort; there isn't much reason to size these tight. After a few months I traded my pair in for a higher performing shoe, but keep my old pair as a great crack climbing shoe.

Brands I'd also recommend: Five Ten, Scarpa, La Sportiva

Unless you have tried on the exact shoe and know what you want, don't buy rock climbing shoes online. There are so many elements going into the perfect shoes for you that online is really hard. I got these too small so I had to return them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Five Tens are a much better shoe for the price.

Bought these shoes because I started to get into bouldering. They are great starter shoes and were recommended by a friend. I wear a 10.5 and got these in a 10.5 . They initially fit tight but once they got broken into they were more comfortable. Comfortable is relative since climbing shoes are supposed to fit tight and do force your toes to curl in when wearing. The shoe is easy to put on and take off due to the Velcro strapping. It has great grip on the wall as well. You can really feel the stickiness of the sole when you touch them. Overall a great shoe. I highly recommend them as a they are a great starter climbing shoe!

Good climbing shoes, at least for an intermediate/moderate climber. They fit well, though I had to order a half-size larger than my normal shoe size.
