Great value shoesby BearMonkey on 02/16/2018
Bought these pés-de-gato (cats feet (rock shoes)) two years ago and have used them almost all that time,
The first thing to mention is they were my first climbing shoes, I think they are the perfect ones for beginners, cheap (under 50€ here (portugal)) and they really last a long time, mostly I do edging and overhanging climbs and the rubber at the tips has worn away significantly however you can still get use out of them as pretty much all the rest of the shoe is as good as in the beginning apart from being softer and way less down turned, it's just under flat.
The lacing system works great to tighten up the shoe in the mid section, I recommend getting as small a number you can manage if you're sports climbing, bouldering or pretty much anything other than long or multi pitch routes as the toes and heel (especially the heel) need to fit snug via the elasticity of the shoe.
I wear them so tight sometimes o forget to use the Velcro.
