Our top pick? The Mens Tarantula All-Around Rock Climbing Shoe by La Sportiva
Climbing is an activity that requires skill, balance, determination, and most importantly: the equipment to match the needs of the climb. Just as hiking is technically "doable" in bare feet or sneakers, I'd wager good money that virtually 100% of avid hikers would much prefer to embark on a long walk with their trusty hiking boots for that added degree of comfort. In the same vein, although some climbs are perfectly "doable" in bare feet or regular old boots, why would you not want the added comfort and grip afforded to you by a quality pair of climbing shoes?
Whether you're rock climbing, bouldering, or just looking to get started, we've got you covered with our comprehensive list of climbing shoes that will help you get the most out of your climbing experience. When choosing the perfect pair of climbing shoes, there are *so* many factors to consider; from fit to grip, and shape to style, allow us to guide you through the best of the best. Enjoy!
