Tenaya

Oasi    $104

The Oasi performs really well on steep ground, with the softer sole really allowing you to pull your weight in onto your feet, even on smaller foot holds. View more

Almost immediately I found greater confidence with these shoes on climbs in Rifle that involved small edges and pulling with your toe, using and trusting footholds that I was hesitating with in the past. View more

A superb and incredibly precise performer. A good all round edge and smear and steep rock shoe. Not a slab master. View more

Evolv

Shakra    $113

Right out of the box I loved the way the Shakra fit. The shoe’s design positions your toes for high performance without the pain of having to downsize. A pronounced bump curved up under my toes filled dead space and gave me a secure fit, while the Knuckle Box created space for my big toe to bend. The Evolv Shakra is a moderately downturned, asymmetric shoe delivering both performance and comfort. View more

Scarpa

Mago    $118

They edge like a boss, which finally is something you’d expect from them. They are very downturned, which drives an incredible amount of power into your toes. View more

The lack of an edge allows you to be much less precise with your feet and get away with it but prevents precision foot placement on edges. View more

A high performance tool that is geared toward sending steep routes with small, smeary foot holds that you really need to be able to feel underfoot to stand on confidently. View more

Evolv

X1    $97

These soft shoes are very sensitive, adding some versatility to such an aggressive shoe. If you haven't sized them painfully tight, you won't be totally out of luck when the climbing gets low angle and techy. They aren't as sensitive as the mega soft Scarpa Dragos, but we prefer a little more support for all the granite climbing in our Eastern Sierra testing zone. The Trax SAS rubber is super soft and sticking. Curiously, all the cat hair in our lead tester's house stuck to 4.2mm of rubber on the bottom of these shoes. View more

The toe is very precise, once I got used to it, with enough sensitivity to know I was standing on the best part of the hold, but supportive enough my feet didn’t tire quickly standing on small nubbins. View more

So iLL

Runner    $64





It is one of the rare examples of a shoe that you could boulder in (both indoors and out), redpoint your hardest sport climb in, or head out for a day's trad mileage in. It can - and does - do everything very well. View more

Tenaya

Iati    $106

Hits the sweet spot of offering the right amount of sensitivity and precision for most of my sport climbing needs. View more

For those who want to test the waters of steep climbing, without going straight to a soft shoe, the Hiangle is the answer. Moderately stiff, the supportive midsole means you can stand on small holds with ease. View more

Steep, with poor feet. That’s the name of the game for the Furia S. Use them on anything else and it’s like driving your Ferrari to the supermarket. You could, but why would you? View more

Evolv

Agro    $98

It is a real boss when it comes to overhanging climbing and is a must have for anyone who specializes in toe hooks or engaging steep bouldering/sport climbing terrain. View more

The La Sportiva Testarossa 2.0 is a great sport climbing and bouldering shoe for terrain requiring edging, pocket stabbing, and pulling the hips in. And the updated heel rectifies the main weakness of the original. View more

The Team 5.10 are extremely downturned. This feature makes them great for grabbing and pulling in on feet, especially on overhung rock. The shape also really focuses the foot’s pushing power onto one small point at the tip of the big toe. The result is a shoe that grabs the rock better than any other I’ve experienced. Climbing in these shoes feels about as close to having hands for feet as possible. View more
