/ Shoe recommendations
I climb on limestone of all sorts, but not really slabs, currently at 7b but hope to hit 7c this year.
I currently wear anasazi VCS but the low volume version as i have narrow feet.
I am considering something with a slight down turn ( not very aggressive though ) to help on the smaller footholds i am coming across now.
Any recommendations ?
I had the verdes ages ago and liked them for trad.
I can normally fit in most lace ups so will give them a go.
Not so easy to find over here though so will have to hunt some down.
Any more suggestions anyone ?
Anasazi Arrowheads might be worth a look too.
5.10 Quantums I reckon!
I had seen those actually - and they look pretty cool as well :0)
They look like a decent compromise. Not so cripplingly downturned as shoes like the bouldering specific ones but still with the power to the toe.
There may be a reason why so many people over here wear sportivas. And they're only 90 euro in Decathlon at the minute.
I say 'only' but they are the cheapest of the options.
Stop press ! A quick visit to Decathlon yesterday has turned up these:
for 65 euros in the sale.
Cheap as chips and they feel pretty good. I've never had a down turned pair of shoes before though so not sure if these will be too aggressive.
Most of my climbing is in the 7a-7b range with vertical to slightly overhanging ( 15 degrees or so ) being the norm.
Anyone used them ?
Macleod amoungst many others rate them (google it). If they feel good, get them.
