Recent Climbing Shoe Reviews

La Sportiva Men's Miura

rated 4 of 5 stars I'm a woman but have long, narrow feet, and find that the men's Miuras are great for me. The laces allow for me to cinch them up tightly enough for my narrow feet, and they fit them like a glove. I use these solely for gym climbing and they stick super well to plastic. They do take a while to break in and the toes are pretty pointy, though, so they get a little sore (but that's fine for gym, cragging, etc.). Fit: Fits the foot itself like a glove, but toes are a little cramped and can get sore/bruised. Full review

La Sportiva Women's Tarantulace

rated 4 of 5 stars It is not amazingly comfortable, but it's a rock climbing shoe, so it's not supposed to be. It is great for indoor climbing at the gym. I bought these to go indoor climbing at the YMCA. They are much better than just using normal tennis shoes. I also used the shoes at the Y, but it's nice to have my own pair. I bought them from REI. I strongly recommend having an employee help you try them on because they will feel tight, but they are supposed to be tight, so they can create a platform with your… Full review

Tenaya Ra

rated 5 of 5 stars This may have been one of the very best bouldering shoes I've had. It completely replaced my La Sportiva Muiras and comes in only second to the Oasi from Tenaya. This was my first shoe from Tenaya and it is great for bouldering. They now have the Oasi which is slightly more aggressive and featured, but this shoe had the same rigidity of the La Sportiva Muira and more comfort. I love these shoes more than anything!

La Sportiva Men's Miura

rated 5 of 5 stars These shoes are just great for sport-climbing, boulder and even trad climbing. I've used these guys overall and have no regrets. It's comfortable, sticky and efficient. Since a reliable edging on routes from a powerful heel job, this shoes, if fitted correctly, can be your number one shoes. I'd recommend for every kind of climb. Seriously. I felt that rubber stretched a lot, so I'd recommend down sizing. How much? Depends on your style and your use. I wear a 9.5 street size and bought the Miuras… Full review

Boreal Kintaro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Supper comfortable aggressive climbing shoe. Amazingly sticky rubber (these shoes literally stick together). The new V2 Rand system keeps an aggressive fit forcing the toe forward and keeping heels tight for heel hooking. After ten years of climbing and trying to find a shoe that performed at the highest level, while maintaining a comfortable fit, I have come full circle to the inventors of sticky rubber. The heel cup fits my narrow heel with no dead space. The forefoot knuckles the toes into a… Full review

La Sportiva Cliff

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good overall shoe. This was my first climbing shoe. I enjoy the lace-up style as it allows me to learn just how tight I need to make them for overall performance. I am a very novice climber but so far I don't have too many complaints about what La Sportiva has done with this shoe. The shoe fits my foot very well. I am new to climbing so I was looking for a decent all around type of shoe that I could do bouldering with as well as climbing. I am a fan of the lace-up style while learning how my foot… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Miura VS

rated 5 of 5 stars Great shoe that is sure to help improve your climbing experience. I would never think of wearing any other climbing shoe for technical routes. Even though it's a matter of personal preference I'd suggest wearing them smaller than your regular climbing shoe to get the most out of the toeing and edging capabilities.¬†They are somewhat narrow so people with wide feet might have problems finding a comfortable side, but they do stretch after a few days of use so take that into consideration when selecting… Full review

Scarpa Instinct S

rated 4 of 5 stars One of my favorite warm-ups shoes, the Scarpa Instinct S are comfortable and aggressive sport climbing shoes with a stiff bottom sole. While comfortable and aggressive at once, the lack of heel tension or suction means very limited heel hooking and uncomfortable toe-hooking. The heel pops off on any pulling heel hooks, which are crucial to bouldering. The stiff bottom sole is supportive of the foot and results in effortless toeing in, and the rubber stands up to granite and small holds well. This… Full review

Mad Rock Mad Monkey

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A lot of parents in Colorado are active and ask about climbing shoes to get their kids psyched on climbing. For kids that I instruct in Boulder, CO, this shoe has good colors, fits snug and soft, and tightens to adjust for growing kids and beginning tots. The shoe will last for at most a year, and there was an original batch with weakly sewn heel size-adjustment straps that would pull off after a few months of climbing. I've seen toddlers and 10-year-olds in these shoes. They are not aggressive,… Full review
