Comfy rock shoes for narrow feet

Recommended Posts

I've got some 5.10 Spires, but they're a little squishy on thinner stuff.

 

Recommendations for a little higher performance shoe that I still won't have to mess with between pitches? I'm not a shoe on/shoe off/repeat kind of guy. The cruel shoe thing isn't my thing.

I am currently selling mine, but it is mens US 8.0...

You do manage to get up things, though. I think your secret might be custom toe ventilation.

While the Big Man has certainly been known to hang out in a pair of aiders, he's done quite a bit of free climbing as well. This is not to say your multiple ascents up El Cap weren't done in finer style, mind you.

Scarpa Technos are a great all-around shoe for narrow feet.

 

I've never bought 5.10s because they seem generally wider than the euro brands - namely Sportiva and Scarpa.

La Sportiva runs narrow. I like comfy Mythos for long routes but I feel like a superhero in tight Miuras. I lose my toenails every summer as a result.

Climbing shoes should feel snug all-around your foot, without gaps or dead space that will reduce sensitivity. Gaps around the heel or under the arch can cause the shoe to slip and slide around when you heel hook or cam your toes into a crack. Beware of shoes that are too short. Well, when I started my journey as a rock climber, I always prefer shoes that fit on my feet but are comfortable, during going through a hundred lists of shoes, I found these Shoes might be comfortable.
