What is your favorite rock climbing shoe?

Asked by loveurmindnsoul (378 points ) April 30th, 2011

I’m just curious as to what your favorite rock climbing shoe is or what you wear. What do you like about it? What do you not like about it. I’m not really looking to get one now, just in the far future. I’ve been climbing for a year+ and can easily top rope 5.9 and am working my way up. I can boulder v0 and am working on v1. I have had Evolv’s Evo and now a Evolv Predator [classic] that I am breaking in. I have looked at La Sportiva’s – Miuras and Miuras VS. Also the 5.10’s – Arrowhead, Anasazis VCS, Team 5.10 & possibly the Blackwing Womens and Evolv – Pontas. I was looking at Mad Rock, but there aren’t many gyms that carry their shoes….and if they do the selection is limited. Street shoe size is 7 female and I wear 6 in Evolvs

What do you wear? Any suggestions? What are your faves?

I used to wear Evolv, but I really like my Sportiva.

@syz, which one are you climbing with? Katanas?

I never did enough of it to justify buying my own shoes, I always borrowed and preferred bouldering.

I just answered this so I could tell you that you are my hero! You bike you climb, you sound like me in my younger days. What else do you do? Are you into horses?

@loveurmindnsoul Yep. It’s a more technical shoe, and felt oddly stiff to me at first. But it’s great for heel hooks, and helped me get better at roll-over moves.
