/ Kids rock shoes - recommendations
My daughter, age 5 3/4 is a keen indoor climber and boulderer. She's been regularly in a harness since the age of 4 and for the past six months been climbing weekly at our local bouldering venue.
She loves the hired rock shoes, and her climbing style seems to demand good rubber under her feet, eg. smearing and edging.
So to counter the hire cost I thought I get her some size-adaptable rock shoes, of which I've seen two recently: the Edelrid Crocy and Boreal Ninja Junior.
Anyone have experience with either and could offer some feedback/critique on?
Evolv Venga if it goes down to a low enough size. It's in a different league to most of the kids shoes and still adjustable and comfortable. Lots of the younger kids in the climbing competitions wear Vengas.
Thanks - look's like they go down to kid's 11 - seem to review favourably too.
