best shoes I ever owned
Review by: janderson4010, 2007-01-11
I love my Voodoo's, i've had them for 3 years now and they are bad ass, I haven't run into a route I didn't like them on, except for bouldering cause their lace up, but that is a very minor problem, I will probably buy the voodoo 2's cause mine are a tiny bit to small. I can still burn up some gnarly lines in em though. I got mine for 80 bucks at teton mountaineering in Jackson Hole. I also have Testarossa's and they are right about even in my mind

These are great shoes!!! I bought a pair about a month ago, mostly because they felt good on my feet and everyone gave them high reviews on rc.com. They are really stiff so you can catch even the smallest edges, though they aren't the greatest for smearing. They took some time to break in, I bought a really tight pair and am glad I did. At first they were really uncomfortable, after a few days they really comformed to my feet. A must have for any serious climber!!!

this shoe is sweet. i had the voodoos and now i have the voodoo II. they are both sweet shoes. good edging and great toe box. really good on overhangs. not the best for smearing but that's not what they're meant for so it doesn't matter.

The size issue for me was a bit different to monkey_climb31. I have some 7.5's and I wear normal shoe size of about 9.5/10. Lots of grip though, realy good on smaller edges from vertical to overhanging. The heel on these fit about the best of any shoes I have had. Also these shoes have worn in realy quickly, about 3 setions!!
Not so good for slabs though but good for bouldering as you can use them as a slipper with the neoprene tongue.

One word: Wow! I am very impressed with the Red Chili Voodoos. The performance is nice.....pretty aggressive shoe. The rubber is nice and performs well esp. on overhangs. The features on the shoe are also quite nice.....the neoprene tongue makes it feel like you're slipping on a slipper shoe then tying it. The easy lace feature is also quite convenient. Definitely the easiest lace-up shoe period! I would recommend these shoes a million times over. Just a caution though....my street shoe size is 9.5/10 and I got 10.5 size in the Voodoos and they were nice and quite tight when new (but fit like a glove now)....seriously about an 1/4 inch smaller when put next to my old Boreals that were 9.5. DO NOT size down for these shoes!! Performance and features are righteous though!!!
