Technique - Choosing your footwear

You can study footwork all you like, but if you have the wrong shoes you can never hope to get the most from your feet. Forget the mentality that you're not a good climber so you don't need good shoes. It may be the case that you don't climb hard because of your lousy footwear! Poor shoes will ingrain bad habits, limit your repertoire and cause you to rely heavily on your arms. That said, good shoes won't guarantee success either, they will just help to maximize your chances. The most important thing is to buy shoes that fit and which suit the stage of progression you have reached.
