rated 4 of 5 stars A cheap comfy shoe with a good heel. Not the greatest edging, but for the price very good value. A cheap comfortable shoe which is very versatile, good for bouldering, overhanging sport routes, multi pitch climbing (if you go up half a size).  Sport climbing it is good for me up to 7C on overhanging and 7A faces. No problem bouldering up to V5-6. It does wear out pretty fast, but for the price it's great.  Full review

Koala Chalkbag

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A generic looking chalk bag shaped for max chalking room and chalk holding. A chalk bag is a chalk bag. Aside from color preference, there's reality no personality. BUT. The thinner top and wider bottom leaves room for an entire block of chalk, and the closure system is easy to close and reliable. (In other chalk bags I've seen: a lot of threads break, the sack moves out of the closure loop, or the springy-thing breaks.) I use this in my sport climbing competitions, and it works completely fine. Full review

Mad Monkey

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A lot of parents in Colorado are active and ask about climbing shoes to get their kids psyched on climbing. For kids that I instruct in Boulder, CO, this shoe has good colors, fits snug and soft, and tightens to adjust for growing kids and beginning tots. The shoe will last for at most a year, and there was an original batch with weakly sewn heel size-adjustment straps that would pull off after a few months of climbing. I've seen toddlers and 10-year-olds in these shoes. They are not aggressive,… Full review

Shark 2.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sleeker than their other shoes, the Shark 2.0 has softer rubber is great for both bouldering and sport climbing on plastic and most outdoor rock with the exception very thin edges on granite. Softer than their other shoes, but stiffer than the new FiveTen Team X. The Shark 2 heel suctions in hard and performs great on all types of heel hooks, especially because the ridge bits hard when rocking up, over and into a move. The arch is intended to pull up more than most shoes, but the arch rubber is… Full review

Flash 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars Comfotable shoe, great design, and looks cool on my feet. All around awesome fit. I usually wear a 9.5 shoe but decided to go one size smaller. Am wearing the 9.0 size and was the best decision I made when purchasing this shoe. A bit of break-in time is needed but that goes with any other climbing shoe. One of my cons was the fact that the dye on the inside of the shoe turns my heel and pads of my feet orange As a climbing shoe, it does its job. I use it mostly for climbing indoors, but the Mad… Full review
