La Sportiva Men's Oxygym

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an excellent versatile climbing shoe for a beginner. Comfortable and as good outside the gym as it is in the gym. Excellent fit. I tried on various hiking shoes that were beginner shoes and they were all extremely uncomfortable. All the salespeople were telling me that the shoe had to fit small or tight in order to climb properly and that the shoes would break in and stretch and eventually stretch and fit my foot like a glove. I thought that was nonsense. Finally a salesperson told me that… Full review

Scarpa Men's Force X

rated 5 of 5 stars This shoe is the most comfortable shoe that I've tried on and/or used. I got it for an inexpensive price and it fits like a glove without being painful. Sticky and light. I couldn't be happier. I am a beginner climber and had a hard time finding a comfortable shoe. The "experts" at the climbing stores kept telling me that the shoes had to be tight and uncomfortable because your feet had to feel the edges, nooks, and crannies of the climbing wall and needed to be responsive. Trying on shoes and having… Full review

Five Ten Anasazi Moccasym

rated 4 of 5 stars This has been my main climbing shoe for two years now. I have used it extensively in bouldering, and sport routes in the gym and outside. The leather and elastic perfectly formed to my feet and I never felt the shoes come off if I rarely did any heel-hooking. From plenty of climbing, the first part of the shoe was the tip and the leather is soft so I can feel the holds under the rubber which boosted my confidence on small holds.  Full review

Scarpa Origin

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic beginner shoe for anyone looking to get started. Fit tapers a little from a slightly narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. These were my first pair of shoes I bought. I normally wear 12-12.5 and got a size 46, I found this too tight so I also got a pair size 47 and used those until my feet got conditioned and then I went back to size 46. What can I say about this shoe? They've stuck with me since the beginning and I've gone from climbing 5.9 to 5.11 in about nine months. They're good… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Otaki

rated 5 of 5 stars Great overall shoe for sport climbing. Nice sticky rubber really helps on slab. Shoe fits well. Definitely one of the wider Sportivas. I would recommend if you have a wider foot. Breaks in very nicely and very quickly. It does not stretch much but it molds to your foot.  Super comfortable from the get-go and I can wear them for two-three routes before I have to take them off even when I first got them. Great sticky rubber makes it excellent for slab work and a stiff edge makes it great for the… Full review

Scarpa Force V

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A perfect step up from the Origin for those looking to increase their performance without getting aggressive. The fit tapers from a narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. Preface: I'm mainly a gym climber, though I occasionally go outdoors. For rating reference I climb at Stronghold in Los Angeles. For about six months I climbed mainly using Scarpa Origins. I wanted to get a nicer pair of shoes to see what the fuss was about, and so I tried a pair of LS Miura Velcros for a while, but found them… Full review

Bufo Shark

rated 5 of 5 stars Good quality shoes for a reasonable price. For the budget conscious person that wants to get a quality products with out breaking the savings account check the Bufo products. I bought these climbing shoes back in 2001 and I am still using them today. I have to say that I don't hit the climbing wall very often anymore, but this is a good quality product for a fraction of other fancy brands' prices. Rubber is sticky and it has a good rubber rand in the side. They have a little bit of camber but they… Full review

Mad Rock Flash

rated 4 of 5 stars A cheap comfy shoe with a good heel. Not the greatest edging, but for the price very good value. A cheap comfortable shoe which is very versatile, good for bouldering, overhanging sport routes, multi pitch climbing (if you go up half a size).  Sport climbing it is good for me up to 7C on overhanging and 7A faces. No problem bouldering up to V5-6. It does wear out pretty fast, but for the price it's great.  Full review

La Sportiva Men's Otaki

rated 5 of 5 stars The La Sportiva Otakis climbed very well on the sandstone of Castle Rock and on the volcanic conglomerate of Pinnacles. They work well for experienced rock climbers. While I did not get a chance to climb on quartzite or limestone during the review period, the bit of foot-scuffing I did on our home quartzite front entry indicated that the Otakis will also work well on quartzite. As with all technical rock shoes, you should get them fitted by a boot and shoe fitter who is well trained in the peculiarities… Full review
