Simond Climbing Shoes

Received my shoes earlier this week and used them for the first time yesterday. They fit and performed well at the bouldering gym. I did notice my foot slipped off the wall a few times (which wasn't happening with the rental shoes) however I am a beginner so this is also likely due to not having great technique and I don't think you can get a better value for the price. I usually wear a 10 and bought the 9.5 in these which was a good fit (I actually measured the length of my foot and used the sizing guide provided). Overall, I highly recommend these shoes for my fellow beginners out there.

Great shoe for the price

I've been climbing 20 years, I dont make a big deal on shoes and often buy the most inexpensive ones on the shelf. These have been holding up nicely. RIght away I replaced the laces with some from a worn out shoe, and they look a million times better. The neon laces make em look a bit cheap

Good training or beginners shoe.

Good training or beginners shoe. Confortable, versatile and sole seems to hold up well. Im a size 9 but I bought a size 8.

not true to size

I ordered my regular shoe size which is a 9 mens. My toes where crunched right in. Not just touching for a snug fit but literally curled and painful. I would say order a half size up at least. Cant rate performance because I couldn't wear them but they seemed like good quality for the price

Rock climbing

Horrible. No grip and horrendous on your heels.

Cheap but a poor fit

Cheap, but poorly fitting. Very tight around the toes, but weirdly loose above the arch. I'd prefer to spend more money and get a better fit.

Too tight on feet

I am a size 9 and I bought a size 9.5 and these shoes are still the tightest, and most smallest I’ve ever wore

Gear for climbing and camping

Great place to get all climbing and camping gear

Great climbing shoes for beginners

Fits small. So do get a couple of sizes down. Better to try it at a retail store first. Otherwise no complaints. Have worn it twice for indoor climbing.

The best shoes, not only for begginers

These shoes are my favorite from all my shoes i had (6 pairs). I climbed on them my first V8. They are very delicate and sensitive, the best for slabs, vertical and event slightly overhang walls. The only issue with these shoes are bad heel (too sensitive and easly for slipping the foot with higher force on them). They are really cheap and the durabilty of the rubber is really good. I really reccomend these pair of shoes for begginers and for intermediate climbers. I bought 1 size less than my normal size of shoes and feel great.

Take 1 size more than your usual one!

These shoes are very small so I would advise everyone to order one size above their usual size. I had to return them and re-order a new pair.

good value beginner shoe

these were the first shoe i bought and they've done me well over the last few months - very durable considering the price. not the most comfortable shoes i've worn, very rigid so not much room for movement and the fact there is only one seam for the loop on the heel means that it's very uncomfortable on the achilles, so much so that for the first month i often had to take a break mid climb to give that part of my foot a break. i also find the soles very slippery at first and it's only now that that has started to get better. great for if you are new to the sport and don't want to spend heaps of money on your first pair of shoes but sometimes it's worth just spending the money

Good value beginner's shoe!

Good value beginner's shoe! Great for somone exploring indoor climbing like me and not wanting to shell out on a high-end pair of shoes. They fit true to size, narrow toe like any climbing shoe, can be worn sockless (as I do) quite comfortably as many climbers like to do. Great grip, good price.

Additional Product Information


Outer sole of

  • 100% Rubber - Synthetic

Upper of

  • 100% Cotton

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Cotton

Shoe shape

Straight climbing shoe with flat profile; conforms to the foot's natural shape for added comfort

Sizing recommendations

We recommend you choose the same size as your normal size (or 1 size above if you want even more comfort). They should feel tight without hurting. If you are a beginner or starting to improve your skills, it's important they not be too tight (that they don't hurt) so that your food can develop mobility, strength, and proprioception

Care instructions

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.



Storage instructions

Avoid heat (cars in summer, proximity to a heat source) and humidity. Choose a cool, dry place.

Care instructions

warm the outsole by rubbing with your hand before climbing (making rubber instantly sticky to avoiding wearing in first minutes of use due to outsole slipping on the rock during cold weather); clean the rubber after climbing (before it cools so dust doesn't stick).
