These are are some of the best medium aggressive shoes out there. This shoes allows you to do some more challenging rock climbing routes while still having a good level of comfort.

While these shoes are more expensive than most rock climbing shoes, they offer great durability. If you are a more seasoned climber, I would highly recommend these shoes. Below lists some pros and cons to this shoe.


With an Amazon review of 4.7 out of 5, many people agree with me that they are reliable and durable

They have a slight downturn while maximizing the comfort level. This allows you to use those smaller foot holds and foot chips compared to less downturned shoes. These shoes also work great under overhangs.

You can wear these shoes for about 1-2 hours without feeling any pain. This is a huge positive for seasoned climbers looking to use a pair of shoes for both training and competing.


The biggest negative this shoe brings is with price. Ranging at around $150 - $180, this shoe is very expensive. For a seasoned climber who is used to climbing many hours within a week, they might be used to these prices when finding shoes, but for most people this might be above the price range.

Like many rock climbing shoes, this shoe can also be difficult to buy online if you are have not bought climbing shoes online before. Since I have bought pairs of shoes online before, this is not a challenge for me and may or may not be a challenge for you.

Overall, this is a great shoe for those looking to train and possibly compete in rock climbing as a whole. As of right now, I am using these shoes to train, and these shoes have worked wonders for me. If this meets your criteria and you are looking for shoes, I highly recommend these as your next pair.
