Beginner shoes

I think these are good beginner shoes. I have used them once, sockless, and some of the blue came on my feet, but other than that they were comfortable and I climbed well. I am just a beginner though, so I am not sure what I'd be looking for. I got a tight pair, but it didn't end up causing any pain in the 1.5 hours of climbing.

Good beginner shoes

After a month wearing these shoes 3 times a week, I find them comfortable but they leave my feet completely blue after climbing, the dye is wearing off and is quite hard to take off my skin. I still think they are great overall for the price.

Grip is no good kept slipping

They are only good for very beginner routes e.g. V0 - V1, any more advanced and they don't hold well, they are very slippery and I keep slipping off the holds and bolsters.

Very good

Comfort my son very like it

good for the first few weeks...

These were decent price point for an entry shoe, they fit nicely and the Vibram sole is fairly sticky. But having climbed in them for a few months, the upper has started really twisting on my foot, which causes a fair amount of pain through the toes when climbing. Can't figure out if it's the upper that has stretched, or the Velcro has lost it's stick. I think the latter as they're fine at the start of the session but twisting towards the end.

Great shoes

Amazing quality beginner shoe!

This was my very first climbing shoe and I have used these for 3 months. I intended to purchase these to test the waters of the hobby, and they are extremely good for this purpose. They have thicker rubber and extra padding when compared to the more expensive, advanced level shoes. Unsurprisingly, as a beginner, you are not climbing as efficiently as an advanced climber would, which means you're often bashing your foot against the walls, and taking foot holds quite aggressively. These are extremely well designed to protect you from these otherwise painful, novice mistakes, until you get better :) Other pros of these shoes are the quality of rubber, the amazing convenience of the Velcro straps and overall comfort. My street size shoe is a UK 9 (EU 43), and I purchased these shoes in UK 9.5 (EU 44) as they were more "comfortable" for me at the time, as climbing shoes can often feel tight. They do stretch a bit (as with EVERY other climbing shoe - even advanced level ones), so in hindsight, I would purchase a size 8 (EU 42), even if they do feel rather tight initially, they quickly stretch out. Overall: Buy this shoe if you're a beginner.

OK, but not great

I just got back into climbing after many years. I was renting Scarpa shoes at the gym, then decided to buy my own shoes. But I found myself slipping on some of the holds with these shoes. They are also quite stiff in the sole. Hopefully they will start to break in.

horrible

Unfortunetely I had to take the tags of to actually try them out, but they have absolutely no support in the toe zone (it just kind of broke). I am used to other climbing shoes at the gym, and they are absolutely not comparble, also hugely unfconfortable even though I got the right size. very dissapointed. I thought this type of shoe would be fine for a beginner, but I wasn't able to do the problems/courses I normally could. when I switches for shoes from the bouldering/ climbing gym I could dot he problems again, so it was clearly in the shoe. I am very dissapointed, and will go somewhere else.

Absolutely solid beginner shoes

These are my first pair of climbing shoes. As comfortable as climbing shoes are expected to be. Very happy with them

good beginners shoe

bought as a replacement when i needed something cheap. these are good for beginners/intermediate but i wouldn’t recommend for climbers beyond that. i used these once a week for around a year and a half on routes, and they have worn down significantly to the point of being glassy. good for people who climb only a few times a month since they wear down fast. they’re alright for bouldering but i find the toe quite wide and not enough flex in the shoe.

It's not worth the money

Bought these a couple of months ago. The shoes look good but they started to really stretch where the rubber meets the grey material and I can see them ripping in a month's time. Also, either the dye or the lining causes me an annoying skin irritation which after a two hr session becomes a proper allergic reaction. Unfortunately, I will have to bin them.

Good beginner shoe

Good shoe with appropriately snug fit

good Shoe

I normally where a size 12 and it was easy to find in store. I have had issues trying to find shoes that go to this size. I love the fit as I can spend 4-5 hours with groups in these shoes

Turquoise Climbing Shoes

Purchased for indoor climbing. Pleased with how they fit and perform. Disappointed that blue dye leaches onto my feet - maybe due to friction or sweat. I am hoping this will cease to happen the more I wear them.

Sizing recommendations

For beginner climbers, we recommend choosing a shoe the same size as your normal size. They should feel tight without hurting. If you are a climber working to improve your skills, you can buy them tighter (1 size below normal, for example), but it's important they don't hurt, so that your foot can develop mobility, proprioception, and strength. You will also enjoy climbing more.

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.

Resoling tips

The sole bushing wears out quickly when climbing. For regular climbers, the life of the bushings is generally 6 months to 1 year. This depends on many factors (type of rock or resin, climbing style, types of routes, etc.). As soon as you see the synthetic leather through the bushings, you must get them resoled. If you pierce the synthetic leather, resoling will be difficult. Our Decathlon workshops offer resoling services to extend the life of your shoes.
