    • Excellent Beginner Shoes

      Neil (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      For a beginner, these shoes are brilliant. You can support whole body weight on a tiny edge and the toes are aggressive enough to jam in the tiniest gap.
      Don't stretch like everybody told me they would. Suggest that you buy for fit, not to stretch. Or wear round the house in socks for a few days.
      You buy your first climbing shoes "blind", not knowing what you really want. I struck really lucky with these shoes, they are fabulous. I love them.
      Value for money, sensible curve, strong sole
      Not quite as "sticky" as I would like.

    • Good shoes for beginners

      Mine have lasted ages, great beginner shoe. They are cheap and durable. I think they need to be firmer is the sole and the rubber could be tougher but in all honesty you get what you pay for. I still wear these shoes, they have stretched a it but quite frankly that is expected. Personally if you are just getting into bouldering these are a good shod and will last a while before you start needing something a little more solid.
      Have lasted around a year!

    • You can get better shoes for less

      C (United Kingdom)

      Having done a reasonable amount of climbing (up to 7a indoor), I have a number of problems with this shoe. I bought them as a beginner/intermediate shoe, when I was climbing up to 6a indoor, and was soon disappointed. The soles are so flexible that you can roll the shoes up and put them in your back pocket: on small holds this means there is no pre-existing tension in the shoe, so it all has to come from your foot. Basically, you have to work twice as hard. In addition, the rubber is poor quality, making smearing very difficult. It wears down much faster than rubber on a higher quality shoe, and generates less friction. The fit is also rather suspect: the shoes stretch over time making the fit sloppy. When I bought mine they were the tightest ones I coud get my feet into. A number of months later they had expanded so much that my foot came out of the shoe while heelhooking, leading to a nasty fall where I was lucky not to get injured. Additionally, the rubber at the toe is clumsy and insensitive. This makes edging remarkably difficult. The net result of these factors on your climbing is pretty large. You climb using your arms far more than putting trust in your feet. You end up smearing all the time because the shoes just don't stick to small holds, and even the smearing is bad compared to other shoes. When I changed to a different shoe my climbing technique improved dramatically, so much so that I could instantly climb 2 grades harder.
      These shoes aim to fill a gap which doesn't really exist. As a beginner shoe they are okay (relatively cheap, comfortable) but not as good as Scarpa Reflex or Scarpa Vantage, both of which can be bought much cheaper. As an intermediate shoe they lack the precision and control of both of the above, and are terrible compared to 5.10 Anasazis. If you want an advanced or performance shoe, don't come anywhere near these. Look at Scarpa Instincts or La Sportiva Miuras or Solutions.
      Poor quality rubber, sole lacks rigidity
      Response of the brand
      Hi CA,
      Thanks for your message. I am sorry that you seem to have had such a poor experience with your shoes, this is certainly not what we would expect from our products and I would encourage you to take the shoes back to a store for a full refund or exchange towards another model. These are however an entry level shoe for beginners/intermediates climbing occasionally rather than for experts (or someone climbing 7a), so I would not compare them with some of the shoes you cited, and at £44.99 (not reduced but a year round price) I would say they are relatively well placed in the market.
      Once again apologies that these shoes did not meet your demands.

    • Good shoes, great fit!

      These shoes are great! They were slightly tighter at first but have stretched/moulded to my feet, or my feet to the shoes. Upshot is, they fit really well now. I am a size 9 and bought the 8.5 as decathlon only stocks in half sizes. I was worried at first but they're amazing and really comfortable!!

      Very sticky soles that really help on the wall. I've only been climbing a few months and these shoes have advanced my climbing massively! I would recommend these to anyone :-)
