Good beginner shoe, 03 March 2016

Bought as a first climbing shoe for bouldering - good fit, comfortable and will allow progression.
Good starter climbing shoes, 27 May 2015
I bought these as my first pair of climbing shoes and they have done well as a first pair for climbing indoors, I've yet to see how they fare outdoors. I also have a pair of Scarpa Force X shoes as an additional pair.
The fit is comfortable and after having broken them they fit nicely to my feet with no pain in my toes or any hot spots developing. The flat shape is also very comfortable and won't put people new to climbing shoe off. My only gripe is that the heel doesn't seem to quite cup my heel as well as I'd like. That isn't to say they aren't secure on my feet, the opposing velcro straps do a fine job of really getting the shoe to wrap securely around my foot, but heel hooks aren't fantastic in these. I have a good bit of flex at the front of the shoe for my toes and I don't get any pinching. The material will stretch a bit but it's not affected how they are performing and have just made them more comfortable with them being more moulded to my feet.
They are easy to slip on and off so if I need a breather they are quick to pop on and off my feet.
On climbing, I climb indoors at the moment and they've been pretty good so far. I have managed to get some fairly thin smooth holds with these and felt pretty stable and smearing has been pretty reliable in them but a little more stick in the rubber wouldn't hurt to feel that bit more stable but I'm sure that everybody would want that bit more anyway.
As a starter shoe you can't really go wrong. they are light, perform well, are comfortable and were quite easy to break in.
