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... These shoes are a good choice for bouldering and training. They are relatively inexpensive, and you can really log some miles in the gym while saving your more expensive shoes for sending where it matters. They are too soft for enduro slab-a-neering, but boulderers will appreciate their ability to squish onto micro holds. OutdoorGearLab
