ZG 65 XCR

rated 1 of 5 stars How Scarpa are getting away with churning out this crap is beyond me! My pair also failed dramatically. The sole just peeled away from the boot after a few hundred miles. I thought the sole wore away quickly as well. They are very hot in summer, but that's what you get for choosing a Goretex liner. Summer-wise, I will be in liner free trail shoes from now on. My advice is avoid the ZG65s like the plague.  Full review

Force X

rated 5 of 5 stars This shoe is the most comfortable shoe that I've tried on and/or used. I got it for an inexpensive price and it fits like a glove without being painful. Sticky and light. I couldn't be happier. I am a beginner climber and had a hard time finding a comfortable shoe. The "experts" at the climbing stores kept telling me that the shoes had to be tight and uncomfortable because your feet had to feel the edges, nooks, and crannies of the climbing wall and needed to be responsive.

Attack

rated 5 of 5 stars Best boots I've had. Used them all year round climbing in Scotland. Been used for over 15 years. Will be hard to find a good replacement. Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic beginner shoe for anyone looking to get started. Fit tapers a little from a slightly narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. These were my first pair of shoes I bought. I normally wear 12-12.5 and got a size 46, I found this too tight so I also got a pair size 47 and used those until my feet got conditioned and then I went back to size 46. What can I say about this shoe? They've stuck with me since the beginning and I've gone from climbing 5.9 to 5.11 in about nine months. They're good… Full review

Force V

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A perfect step up from the Origin for those looking to increase their performance without getting aggressive. The fit tapers from a narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. Preface: I'm mainly a gym climber, though I occasionally go outdoors. For rating reference I climb at Stronghold in Los Angeles. For about six months I climbed mainly using Scarpa Origins. I wanted to get a nicer pair of shoes to see what the fuss was about, and so I tried a pair of LS Miura Velcros for a while, but found them… Full review
