In reply to seagull: i particularly like the flower print on the soles.

still, they'd be perfect for the girl who likes to climb wearing rings.

Reminds me of Batman and Robin 'climbing' up a horizontal building facade with a stick in their capes to make them hang 'down'. Do you think there's someone just out of shot holding the chalkbag? :)

I don't know, but when I got given some talc as a xmas present my immediate thought was 'can I use this as chalk?' (well it's white, it's powdery....). But no, talc is really really bad chalk. Sad to say.

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKClimbing.com: Ummm. Mick? That's a commercial sale, no charity link whatsoever...

I thought it wasn't allowed to do that sort of thing on here?

Anyway, they are tacky. Gold is SO 1980s.

"To find the right measurement please go
a size and a half UP in your street shoe size"

Surely the hardcore go DOWN a size and a half?
gingerkate - on 01 Jun 2007
In reply to Chris F:
I think they're selling them as fashion shoes, so they're telling people to add on a size and a half, otherwise they won't be able to go clubbing in them without dying of pain by 10 p.m.?

Not surprising then taht no one is buying, you'd need little size 2.5 footsies...

"buy me loose for multi use"
surely they are not seriously any more than a fasion item.
That said I know a few kids in the school goups who would be queing up to get a pair!!

Well she's a girlie-girl as well as an athelete and she plays a mean violin.

She'd give Johnny Dawes a run for his (stone) mo(k)ney

You can see her strutting her stuff here:

Maybe I should just get her a new Polly Pocket or an American Girl Doll?

get them for her - she might be able to flog them as 'vintage stella mccartney' in a few years to help pay for college!

In reply to CJD: i still want to know what rubber they'vemade the soles out of. i might take back some of my criticism if it turns out to be stealth.

and if it *is* stealth, I want feetfirst to start offering resoles with pretty patterns :-)

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKClimbing.com: Is it just me, or are they the least sexy or feminine shoes in the world? they're brown, dirty looking, ugly shaped, and with stupid laces which seem to have been draped randomly over the shoes-there are far more attractive shoes on the market. Or maybe I'm just bittter they don't do them in my size....

They're a version of one of the shoes from the Salomon range that never appeared, resprayed by Stella.

I don't know about the rubber though

I wonder if they are made from any animal products?
