Topic - Rock shoes

Dave Cumberland - on 24 Sep 2012
Have been scrabbling recently to find rock shoes with any positive qualities. Have tried various makes, now sitting on about four or five pairs. None of them shape up. They are universally badly designed, poorly constructed, ludicrously enhanced with pointless and apparently fashionable features. They roll on the feet, will not stick on small Lakes holds, simply don't do the job required.

The days when a new pair of shoes allowed a half or full grade uptick are over. At the moment what is on offer is total rubbish. Some of the more sensible designs like Sportiva Cliff have been discontinued.

This is a hopeless situation, manufacturers and designers should take note.
