/ Climbing shoe advice
Whichever shoes fit your feet best. Down-turned shoes are IMO unnecessary at your current grade, however if you are about to embark on some slate E3s for example then they might be useful.
Scarpa Instinct/Vapour are downturned, comfy and hard wearing for people with wide feet.
5.10 Anasazis are hugely popular at all grades and are not downturned. Good for people with narrow feet
