/ renoamend me a rock boot....
Can be lace-up or velcro.
Edelrid Hurricane. Really comfy, I use mine for bouldering and all-day crag sessions without any discomfort.
Just as there is no car that will seat 7 and fit end on into roadside parking, there is no such shoe. So anything that's comfortable.
I knew I'd get one reply like this, so, just what people have found to be nice for a few different types then at least I have some idea of ones to try :)
Scarpa vapour v/ sportiva miura/ 5.10 anasazi. just pop off the heels on big multipitch
I've got 4 & half different pair/s at the moment* and my clear favourites are currently La Sportiva Cliff 5 not the most technical shoe but I tend to climb better in them as they are the comfiest by far , great for all day multi pitch trad & short over hanging sport & bouldering , fine indoors for over hanging easyish ( F6b ) too .
I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair .
* I lost one .
And my mates got two sheds ( seriously , crazy I know ) !
Evolve bandits, a really comfy shoe and quite capable.
La Sportiva Miura... a little pricey, but if they fit your feet they will do everything! I believe a certain Mr. Ondra climbs some decent stuff in them.
5.10 Newton - they brought 'em back by popular demand but now being discontinued again hence good price if you can find 'em - I got a spare pair (while I still could) under half price at Rockrun.com recently.
I also have a couple of pairs of 5.10 Spire - has there ever been a more comfy shoe?
I use these for everything - with me that's up to about 5b/F6a+ single pitch to all day. At these grades I don't see the need for "technical" shoes at all.

Is he called Arthur Jackson ...?

You have an exceptional memory Furthur ... 80)
If you have wide feet, vapours or instinct laces are basically miuras but comfier.
