These are the ones I can think of:
Five Ten
La Sportiva
Evolv
Acopa
Mad Rock
Bufo
CaVa
Scarpa
Boreal
EB
Montrail
FMTech
Mammut
Red Chilli
Garra
Millet
Rock Pillars
Climbingshoes.com (reebok)

I can't think of any others but I'm sure there are some obscure/europe only brands.

I'm looking at these and trying to imagine them in grey. I think you're right about the Reebok.

I never climbed in those but had several of the other style of reeboks. They were great in the cracks and good on the face. I heard somewhere that Todd Skinner had even designed them. Dunno if that was true.

It was sweet to have a pair of Reebok climbing shoes that said "made in Italy" on the inside. I wonder who built them.

My first shoe was the climbing shoes.com terrabyte, which I think is the only ones available nowadays. They had a very high profile toe, much like an evolv bandit, which I wouldn't suggest for thin cracks.
