Grip, great fit RED CHILI, 20 May 2011
By maximillion (newcastle)
My first pair of shoes after many rented pairs... I take a 9 and needed the 44 in this shoe as they come up small and you expect your toes to be tight in the shoe. Great grip and support for indoor walls, haven't yet tried on any outside rocks but these shoes give great fit, excellent grip and are reasonably priced. They lace up well and even though tight they are comfortable! I've recomended these to three of my friends now and they all agree a great climbing shoe!
Red Chilli Sausalito, 14 July 2010
By pistol pete (rotherham)
I bought a pair of Sausalitos as my first pair of climbing shoes for use on the indoor walls, I was advised they were an all rounder shoe great for begginers. A year later and four pairs of shoes in I favour these for the outdoor crags, they are not too technical, your foot is not bent over and you can walk from crag to crag in them (unlike some other I have). If you want an all rounder pair, try these !
Excellent climbing shoes, 04 May 2010
By Animal451 (Swindon)
I've had these shoes for just under a month now, and done around 8 hours of climbing in them since then. I've found them comfortable, yet supportive, and have yet to find fault in them.
Personally I prefer lace-ups to the velcro straps as I like the feel of the shoes snug on my feet. I guess the velcro type shoes are great for getting tight shoes off quickly, but these are comfortable enough to climb in and then return the favour to your partner by belaying for him/her. I don't feel the need to shuck these off as soon as my feet hit the ground, much like I have done with other shoes. These ones pretty much go on my feet at the start of the session and stay on until its time for home.
The styling is nice, and certainly not the most garish I've seen (climbers appear to have a weakness for flash shoes ;) ). It's much like the other Red Chili products I've seen, which should come as no surprise. The toe is pointed enough to stick into most shallow features at my local wall, but not so sharp that your feet feel like you should be hobbling through a rural Chinese province at the turn of the 19th Century.
The sole is nice and stiff, and that really helps on the traversing wall when warming up. They're also scoured which makes them grip a little more easily on features or if you're smearing up to the next foothold.
The twin ring pulls on the back are a nice touch and make pulling on the shoes really easy. When your climbing partner's already shod and ready to get going, the extra speed is always useful! :)
All in all, for a mid-range (a little higher than mid, maybe) pair of shoes these do all the things I ask of them. They're comfortable enough to keep on, they're supportive and they're grippy... they're also moderately flashy which can only be a good thing as it makes people aware of my rapidly flailing feet zooming towards their heads as I fall off the wall one more time.
