La Sportiva Men's Katana

rated 4 of 5 stars I am a novice weekend climber, who purchased the La Sportiva Katana climbing shoes two years ago. During this time it has given me many opportunities to test them out and provide useful information for prospective buyers. Uses I have used the Katana climbing shoes for bouldering and indoor rock walls. They have other uses but these are types of climbing that I have used them for. My review will be based on these types of climbing. Any climbers who are out on the crag, may have different experiences… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Mythos Eco

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Mythos Eco is a great all-day climbing shoe that has been redesigned, using 95 percent recycled materials, without compromising quality and function. This product is designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and has superior comfort for all day use, whether working on projects in the gym, or long multi-pitch routes.  After 25 years of being a climber’s favorite, Las Sportiva has announced a re-edition of their classic shoe. The Mythos Eco looks nearly identical as its predecessor, however… Full review

Scarpa Men's Origin

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent introductory climbing shoe. They blend comfort with technical power and durability quite well for a beginner shoe. I climbed in them for two years, about once a week, and they held up well. They are comfortable, but still allow you to climb moderate difficulty. Excellent edge and moderate curve. The fit was excellent, with the leather upper shoe stretching slightly to match my foot.  Full review

Five Ten Team VXI

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Five Ten Team VXi’s are a highly specialized, performance climbing shoe. If you’re at a place in your climbing where you need a little boost to crack that latest project, these are like having a cheat code in your bag. Boosting a full 360 degrees of the Stealth Mi6 makes these shoes excel at steep or overhanging routes. I’ve got very few constructive critiques. Other than a small break-in period, these are, in every aspect, a top performer. PREAMBLE This entire shoe is built around the… Full review

La Sportiva Women's Mythos

rated 5 of 5 stars Great comfort, perfect multi-pitch and all around shoe—very durable. I had my Mythos for three years and have climbed with it on rock—usually sport climbing, vertical walls, slabs, chimneys, and multi-pitch. I have found it really comfortable (for me a big plus, as I cannot endure pain in my feet for climbing. I simply cannot stand shoes that cause me pain in the foot/toes), and it does not have any of the new "plastic in the sole" P3 technology that La Sportiva does now (which makes your foot… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Oxygym

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an excellent versatile climbing shoe for a beginner. Comfortable and as good outside the gym as it is in the gym. Excellent fit. I tried on various hiking shoes that were beginner shoes and they were all extremely uncomfortable. All the salespeople were telling me that the shoe had to fit small or tight in order to climb properly and that the shoes would break in and stretch and eventually stretch and fit my foot like a glove. I thought that was nonsense. Finally a salesperson told me that… Full review

Scarpa Men's 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. Trying on shoes and having… Full review

Five Ten Anasazi MoccAsym

rated 4 of 5 stars This has been my main climbing shoe for two years now. I have used it extensively in bouldering, and sport routes in the gym and outside. The leather and elastic perfectly formed to my feet and I never felt the shoes come off if I rarely did any heel-hooking. From plenty of climbing, the first part of the shoe was the tip and the leather is soft so I can feel the holds under the rubber which boosted my confidence on small holds.  Full review

Scarpa Men's Origin

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
