User Review: La Sportiva Cobra
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $102 on sale
These are my favorite gym climbing shoe. They are super comfortable and work great for mostly everything.
- They do tend to stretch a bit and then the heel tends to come loose
These shoes are best when you first get them, right as you're breaking them in because they are super tight. Super easy to get your feet in and out of even before breaking them in.
The only downfall is sizing is tricky, as once they break in and stretch out the heel gets loose if you don't go small enough. The rubber is thin enough where they are super responsive, yet not thin enough where you will blow through them in 2 months.
I think I've had my Cobras for about 6 months at a time before I get a hole in the toe.
