Topic - What rock shoes?

splat2million on 14 Jul 2014
Dear collective knowledge of UKC. I need advice.

I need a new pair of rock shoes. The pair I bought about 18 months ago (fairly cheap ClimbX ones - I asked for a beginner pair) are now falling apart.

I climb trad, mostly in the Peak District on grit. Currently leading HS, looking to get up to HVS hopefully over the next year or so but not likely to go much beyond that in future. I don't climb very much at all indoors (one of the reasons I'm unlikely to ever climb anything difficult!) and don't boulder. I usually climb once or twice per week.

My budget depends on how long they will last - but under 100 would be good. I do like to climb mountain routes, especially in Wales, so the shoes need to be durable as I'll probably get them wet and muddy.

Any thoughts / advice / suggestions?
