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

La Sportiva Men's Mythos

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Used them since 1997. Comfortable — excellent fit to feet, can wear all day eg on 400m routes. Can be resoled, just make sure you don't wear the nose too much and get the 4mm resole. All round fit brilliant. Moulds even to very wide feet. Grip quite OK by me up to grade 22. Surprisingly good as a crack shoe though larger sizes help. I do have a few sizes though for my size 11 1/2 J feet 43 for the harder stuff 43.5 for gym 44 for long stuff Full review

Five Ten Stonelands Slipper

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great, comfortable, yet stiff slipper. Great for cracks and slabs! Not for overhangs. Back story: Well, my La Sportiva Barracudas finally bit the dust. I searched desperately for a new crack climbing shoe, namely, one with rubber over the toes. To my dismay, most shoes with rubber over the toes are aggressive and downturned, not ideal candidates for a crack climbing shoe. The decision came down to the Five Ten MocAssym (a favorite of many crack climbers) or the Five Ten Stonelands Slipper, a new… Full review

La Sportiva Women's Mythos

rated 5 of 5 stars I absolutely love these climbing shoes! My biggest surprise with these shoes was how well I was able to smear on the wall with them. I have had difficulty finding a shoe that is better than these. I definitely recommend this shoe. It fits perfectly and just molds to your foot. It is very comfortable and doesn't take too long to break in. I can wear these shoes all day if I wanted to and they don't pinch my toes as bad as some shoes do. Although, I would love to find a climbing shoe that will give… Full review
