La Sportiva Nago
Materials: leather and synthetic
Break-in Period: good from the start!
Comfortable all day cragging shoe. As per last review, also have required resoling rather quickly and the red-dye while not a nuisance is something to be aware of. Some stretch, but not major.
Recommend for beginners to intermediate getting into the sport, but when you want something for technical edging etc you may want to upgrade.
Use: All day climbing shoe
Break-in Period: around 2 weeks
Price Paid: $90
A very comfortable climbing shoe that has proven to be a very decent climbing shoe. Currently, mine are getting resoled and I feel as though a piece of me has died inside. I await the moment of their return so I may once again feel whole.
Even though it dyes your feet red for days, the comfort that this shoe offers is incredible. The shoe is also quite great on grip but is not a very aggressive shoe.
