      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What shoes would you choose

Recommended Posts

I am looking for advice for climbing shoes. After recovering from surgery on both my shoulders I am finally back to cracking into the 11’s again and hoping to climb harder. I am currently climbing in Mythos but feel like I need a bit more. I also have a pair of Testarossas I had before my surgeries but now they just kill my feet. I guess I am interested in something in-between these shoes. I know there are many variables depending on the type of climbing so please give me your recommendations on the best shoe for face climbing and best for cracks. I feel like I could wear my Mythos all day so I plan just use those as my all day multi-pitch shoe.

 

Thanks

I've sported Sportiva miuras for about two years now. They're great for hard sport and small cracks. Slab, not so much... I can't get over how well it forces pressure on such a small point and won't let it go. Break in period is a bit of a downer, but to put it simply. I can wear mine all day now w/o a prob (long hard alpine trad). That initial first few runs are going to hurt (don't they always anyways?). In the end you'll be more than grateful for purchasing these kicks. If they fit you're feet properly. If you'r already sporting the Sportivas I doubt you'll have a problem getting into Muiras. Congrats on getting back in after such a painful accident. cheers to you and your new shoes

Same for me, La Sportivas always fit my feet well, and I use Mythos for comfort and OK performance, Miuras for performance and reasonable comfort.
