First shoe... very positive
Review by: MrFreefall383, 2006-12-25
This was my first climbing shoe. I'm now looking at something a little better due to a freebie Christmas shoe offer from the 'rents. Because I learned to climb on these shoes, I'm very partial to them. I really thought they were an excellent first shoe, really reliable and dependable for a rookie climber. After a few good years of training myself to climb more efficiently on these shoes, they're still in real good shape. They're a bit slick now unfortunately, which is why I suggested to my parents that I needed a new pair of shoes. And I recently started getting more into bouldering, which these shoes just aren't quite designed for. Most bouldering seems to put me face-to-face with overhangs, and these shoes just can't keep up anymore. All things considered though, I had a very positive experience learning on these shoes and would highly recommend them to a new climber.
