Hi guys, I started bouldering indoors a couple of days ago and instantly fell for it. I've decided to buy some climbing shoes to replace the nike free running shoes I'm using at the moment. I'd like your experienced oppinions on such a beginners shoe :) Here are some cheap shoes I have my eyes on, which ones would you recommend?

* Rock Pillars Top Gun
* Scarpa Stix
* Scarpa Spectro
* Scarpa Booster (really cheap)
* Scarpa Margo (a bit expensive)
* Scarpa Force (a bit expensive)
* Rock Pillars Summit LU (a bit expensive)
* Rock Pillars Ozone QC (a bit expensive)


Also here is another question from me :)

The climbing wall I use at university has courses I1, I2, I3, I4 and F1. Are these numbers international ratings for difficulty, since It would be cool to know if I'm doing a beginners course or an intermediate. The coursecreator told me I3 was intermediate, but maybe there is a specific system you can share with me. I live in Denmark, if that helps. Here are some videos that show me complete the route (green):

Thanks in advance.
