Fresh out of the box these shoes edged well while being comfortable whether walking around the crag or gym. But whoa they get smelly after just a few sessions. I washed them per the manufacturer’s recommended way and then various pieces began delaminating. And even with a good wash the stink comes back 2 to 4 sessions later. My advice is stay away from synthetic climbing shoes.
Nice fitting shoe, I am a beginner and it is a nice all around shoe. Velcro has stayed strong with no issues. It is a synthetic material used so the shoe does not stretch at all, but that was not a surprise. Overall I am very happy with them. As always, REI has a great return policy since I needed to return original ones to get a half size up.
Easy wearing shoes for this new climber, edges decently and easy enough to clean.. the couple times I've gotten around to doing it! Big fan of the hook and loop straps that make it super quick to pop the shoes on and off in between problems or on-belay.
I bought this about 2 weeks ago used it 4 times so far at earth treck. It's a great climbing shoe and for the price it's not bad. Washable and easy clean up. Works well for me when I climb.
My first climbing shoe and very happy with it. Iv been at the gym three days a week and these shoe have not given me a problem yet
Used this shoe in the gym only, and lasted about a month before rubber started separating. I climb anything up to about v7.
I went from rock shoes with shoelaces to these and the Velcro is so nice! It's nice being able to give my feet a break
Very comfortable fabric. Maybe a bit slippery climbing outside but awesome results at the gym!
