Recent Climbing Shoe Reviews

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).  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

La Sportiva Women's Tarantulace

rated 4 of 5 stars Very grippy soles. I like that these shoes have laces to stay tight on your feet. I bought these used and was very pleased with the purchase. The shoes fit my feet to a T, and are a comfortable fit for climbing shoes. I have used these for both outdoor and indoor climbing, and the shoes have been great for both. The soles are great for smearing and are very grippy.  Full review

evolv Addict

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you can climb in slip-ons, you can do anything in these. They tackle any objective with grace and power. I am sold. FIT: These shoes fit me perfectly. I have a wider foot, but my heel is average. They have no dead spaces, hot spots, or slippage. I bought exactly to my street shoe size (11.5), and they are ideal for all of my pursuits. This is my first pair of slip-ons, and I may be sold for life. COMFORT: These were ready to go pretty much out of the box, with only two long sessions needed to… Full review

La Sportiva Taka

rated 3 of 5 stars As a beginner climber I got these shoes used from a gym and they supported me for climbing for three years of hitting the gym on and off. They worked great to help me get into climbing and taught me what to look for in my next pair. These shoes fit pretty well, but soon I learned they were a bit big. Overall though they are easy to get snug with the laces. The heel fits great and so do the sides — plenty of room and they don't feel overly tight around the sides on wider feet. Since I bought these… Full review

Boreal Joker

rated 5 of 5 stars These shoes are super comfortable and provide great support for medium grade routes. Great for Sport, TR, or Trad. These shoes are super comfortable and provide great support for medium grade routes. The heel is extremely cushioned, which makes for a super comfy fit. The sole is medium-thick, which is great for climbing crimps and slabs. Great for lead or TR and light bouldering. It is a fairly flat sole, so if you're more competitive in bouldering, you'll want more downturn. Full review

evolv Pontas

rated 2 of 5 stars I currently own a pair of Evolv Pontas size 11— part of the Sharma signature range. These shoes are a great all rounder. I purchased a second pair recently online (same size 11). I could not squeeze these shoes onto my feet, so I returned them and purchased a pair of size 12s. The size twelve was also way too tight so I returned these also at a total cost of €50—ouch!! My advice is: "do not buy Evolv shoes online. Be sure to try the shoes on in a shop first. The company has serious issues… Full review

Scarpa Men's Vapor V

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile all-around precise shoe. I have had the new 2015 lime green model since April 2015. These are really good shoes for doing a lot types of climbing, but not the best except for small edges. I think I'd like them more with a stickier sole and a bit more camber. Great mileage shoe, perfect for a beginner looking for some performance.  Full review

Tenaya Oasi

rated 5 of 5 stars The Oasis are a versatile slipper that can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. I have been heavily using my pair for a few months now, and so far nothing about them has disappointed me. I've spent long days bouldering (outdoors and in) with them, used them on slabby and steep sport climbs, and even spent some time in them on longer trad routes. They have shone in all scenarios. FIT.  These fit me perfectly, but make sure when sizing for yourself you get a size down. Once you dial in… Full review
