Comfortable and precise high-performance edging shoe. Slighter stiffer and narrow toe-box allows you to really dig in and stand on small holds, and there is adequate toe-patch rubber to scum around and under corners and aretes. Works great across a wide range of climbing applications, from sport to bouldering, and stays true-to-size with very little stretch.

So far these shoes feel great... and call me crazy, but I've been strggling to find good light hiking sneakers that have a very flat footbed so I can put my own insole in... I've become a hard core Birkenstock fan after they helped me get over plantar pain, so i've bought a few pairs of Birk shoes and swap the insoles around... they work great in these!

I normally wear a size 6 in shoes and had this climbing shoe in a 5.5. I ordered that same size but for some reason this time it was too small and exchanged for a size 6 and it fits great. The only issue with these shoes in general is they get really stinky with wear, but I know I like the shoe so keep getting it until I find another one I like better.

These are a great pair at a reasonable price if you're a beginner at rock climbing. I normally wear a size 5 or 5.5 but 5 fit great on me. They're typically true to size and if you're going one size up then that might be too big already. Your toes are suppose to curl up a bit, and leave little-to-no room for wiggle all around. These are NOT meant for walking like any regular shoe and will be uncomfortable if you try to do so for long. Wear these without socks and although they might be slightly uncomfortable, if at all, they'll fulfill their purpose and stretch a bit over time. Definitely recommend these Elektra's and I love the purple color!

I wish I'd listened to the anon review. I have slightly wide feet and the sole is just too small, it felt like I was balancing on a pad. They look really nice and fit well otherwise...

First off, I am pretty strict with shoes. I have to say they fit well, run a half size small.(to be expected with a form fitting hike/trail shoe) They glove fit the foot. However if you are going to use a arch support,they do kinda hug the back heel,which I am prone to hee blister ,as my heel sticks way out in the back.They might relax though. I can tell by the soft material,the shoe will have a small tendency ti mis-shape. as a cheaper shoe would. the sole is amazing. USA made. I can tell the sole rubber is of high quality. All in all a good show for the price.

I love these shoes. I initially bought them because I was having trouble with my Achilles tendon and needed a comfortable gym shoe that would not irritate it. Now I wear them everywhere. I've worn them walking city streets, at the gym, and hiking in the mountains. They're super cute and very comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned that the soles leave black marks on the floor, and that is true. So I don't wear them on my white kitchen floor! Other than that, they're great.

When you first put it on, it's very comfortable, almost like a heavy sock. Looks nice and minimal. The main problem with it though is that the sole is too narrow. If you don't step perfectly straight you'll feel the edge of the sole under your foot, like your slipping off the edge a bit. Maybe that means it's too narrow for my foot, but I've never had to buy extra wide shoes so I consider my foot to be average width.

Got blister on my tendons (not on heel) after 2 hours. Look great just didn't work for me. Damn, I liked them too!

I recently starting Bouldering (indoor rock climbing) this is a good starter shoe. The first wear irritated the back of my heel at first because these are worn without socks. After the first use I haven't had any issues. These shoes definitely feel weird, they are supposed to feel different but not hurt. They didn't hurt me at all. I wear a size 10 normally but 10.5 fit perfect. Your toe is supposed to reach the front of the shoe because you need to use your toes for climbing. If your toes slightly curl then that's normal. The velcro allows easy adjustment and removal especially after a hard climb!

With such a simplistic design, I think this gets overlooked as a quality approach shoe. Fits snugly and has a sticky-rubber sole making it capable of climbing/routesetting/gym use, and the heel folds down, very useful when hanging out between climbs outside. Stretches about half size as it is a slipper, so size down a little if you are using it as a performance approach shoe. Not ideal in snowy or wet conditions, but great in summer and in desert environments - think Red Rocks, Nevada or Joshua Tree approaches.

I bought these for my son - his first set of technical shoes. with the laces, they are the right shoe for a novice - good all around shoe for indoor climbing.

First off I want to start, I really like these shoes. They fit well. Have excellent comfort. I walked over 70 miles in these shoes no discomfort, no blisters. I received tons of compliments. BUT....they have marking soles. Who has sneakers that leave marks on your floors anymore? I was prepping Thanksgiving dinner and at end of day was asking who wore the marking shoes that messed up my floors. It was me. Turns out all that pivoting was marking up my floors. I'm scared to wear them indoors now.

We originally bought them fort my boyfriend who is a mens 11 and they were way too small. in fact I (women's 9 1/2) fit in to them nicely. I was considering leaving it for myself because I also need high arch support, and the style is really great. The grip seems good, the entire sole is made from what looks like tire rubber but alas we are sending them back. My foot started hurting a little after trying them out for a few hours. Maybe i just wasn't used to it and they need to be broken in more, because it definitely looks like they can stretch and form around one's foot. So don't let that discourage you, I wasn't really planning on buy shoes for myself anyways.

They fit tightly without squishing my toes and I loved that. The sole is more convex than I like in a climbing shoe, but they had great grip. I had to replace them after 2 months of 3 days a week indoor sport climbing because the stitching holding the tongue in place to the outside near the toe failed and the toe portion then had too much slack so my foot could slide slightly inside the shoe. It happened to both shoes about 2 weeks apart. Not sure if it was a defective pair or if that is normal of this style.

These shoes run ridiculously small. I usually wear a 8.5 or 9. I needed a size 11 in this shoe. They are cute and comfortable but be prepared to size up at least one full size.

I am using a pair that is the same size as my street shoe and they fit great. Typically I feel insecure while edging when my shoes are sized to street, but not with the addict. I am able to size the shoe to work well in cracks, and maintain edging strength which is all I could want from a trad shoe. Being able to take the shoe on and off quickly is a bonus for long days, and multi-pitch climbing.

I'm a fan of slippers for most types of climbing, and these have held up solidly. Slip on pretty easily even when sized tight (helps that the front pull loop is directly attached into the upper), and the upper material conforms to your foot's shape well. I sized about a full size down, and they broke in quick to become some sensitive and adept climbing shoes. Definitely an all-around use shoe - good training shoe because of the softness, very precise shoe bouldering and sport climbing, and the upper is low without any excess material (like laces or velcro) so it can jam into cracks and hold easily. Definitely a good performance climbing shoe that fits comfortably.

Received shoes quickly with no hassles. Shoes are a little tight at first (more the right foot). Stuck a boot last in it, laced it up and left it for a week. These shoes do stretch out. Overall very happy. Have bought from Zappos before, never had any problems.

Great shoe for the money, I ordered a size down from my street shoe, uncomfortable at first but not unbearable. Have had about 7 3 hour gym climbs in them now and have stretched to fit great. Smears well but the edging is fairly weak in them do to the rounded toes. All in all a great all day shoe.

Great first climbing shoe. Careful with the sizing. I originally bought small based off of recommendations to have a very tight fitting shoe, but it was just painful. Closer to my true shoe size work much better, and the free shipping and return policy made this exchange seamless.
