Choosing climbing shoes is no easy activity. Unless you are an experienced climber you will most likely want some advice when trying them on.  

The climbing shoes on the market now a days make it possible for athletes to almost walk up the wall and to stand on seemingly smooth surfaces and none existing foot holds. This has all been made possible through years of research, trial and error. The rubber used for the soles of climbing shoes generates as much friction as possible in order for the athlete to perform at peak levels. Most, if not all intermediate to advanced climbing shoes are equipped with these high performance soles, but there are still a few differences worth pointing out. 

When it comes to choosing your climbing / bouldering shoes there are two main criteria to look out for, comfort and functionality.These two are not correlated, meaning that if you want your shoe to be a bit more comfortable and less tight, you will most likely pay the price in functionality and the other way around. Furthermore, climbing shoes will expand with use and wear, especially the leather shoes can change their shape and size quiet a bit, which is why, if you want performance, it makes sense to initially buy these pairs pretty tight. Synthetic shoes on the other hand will not loosen as much. This covers the aspect of comfort, optimised functionality is usually achieved as long as the shoe is snug fitting around the heel and as long as the big toe touches the tip of the toe cap. Anything else, like shape, material, closing system etc has it's advantages and disadvantages and is up to the climbers preferences and climbing needs.

Many climbing shoes come in a unisex/men's version and a women-specific version. As with any shoe, the biggest differences between men's and women's climbing shoes are volume and width. Women-specific shoes typically have a lower volume, a smaller toe box, and a narrower heel. Also,with the assumption that women are always lighter than men, the rubber tends to be softer because it does not need to support as much weight.

Over time this has changed and brands started developing and producing rock climbing shoes specific to the female shape of foot. In general, these women's shoes are designed for more petite feet, their cut is generally narrower and the height of the heel a bit lower. The new name manufactures give to these shoes instead of calling them women shoes, is 'low volume' or 'LV' shoes. This doesn't mean that men cannot wear these shoes, it just depends on their foot shape.</p> <p>The choices are endless and difficult today so contact our Customer Service or send us a mail to help you choose the right product for your needs. </p> <p></p> <p>Shop online.........more time to climb.</p> <p></p> <p>Casper's Supports Your Summit</p>
