Well crafted beginner/intermediate rock shoe for all-round climbing.
"Targeted at the aspirant all-rounder the Scarpa Reflex is built for comfort, with its neutral last and padded tongue, yet will still 'cut the mustard' as you work through the grades with a well balanced sole providing enough support for edging and enough sensitivity for when things get slopey.
Another great feature on an all-round shoe is a fast and firm hook and loop closure. This allows power and precision when required but also lets you quickly free you feet which might not be used to the confinement of rock shoes if you are just getting started. Finished with all new SSR1.0 rubber soles for lasting grip. "
I bought this shoe as my first climbing shoe and they were a very good shoe to start with. However, I was disappointed by how quickly I wore down the rubber and found them quite uncomfortable as they are narrow. That said they were very cheap and grippy.

Great but fitting is a bit small
I got a size 39 (6 UK) but it was a very tight fitting. My toes were curled in when whole foot was in shoe and very uncomfortable after 10 mins of wearing. Size 40 (7 UK) were fine.
Recommend go a size up!
