Kids Climbing Shoes
More and more kids are starting to climb, whether it is for fun or pushing towards competitions we have got you covered.
Best Climbing Shoes For Younger Kids
There are a lot of good options out there for kids that perform the sport for fun. At this point you shouldn't worry about performance, the most important thing is to find a shoe that is comfy, has a good rubber and is easy to put on and take off.
Furthermore, because the young climbers are still in their growing phase, most kids shoes will either have a lacing system or a big velcro closure, both allow the show to "grow" with the kid. It is very important to keep this in mind, because not only will the right shoe for your kid provide additional grip, but they also offer the feet extra support and make sure that their growth isn't impacted. If your kid doesn’t have comfortable shoes they won't enjoy climbing,
Best Climbing Shoes For Competitive Kids
Here too there are a few options, such as the Reflex kid by Scarpa which provides much more performance, but the real choice will open up once the kids reach about a EU 36 size. That is when they can start getting into the adult range and here the choice is much larger. Hopefully at this point the kid is used to tighter shoes and can choose something more aggressive.
Sizing & Fit For Kids Climbing Shoes
We all know what a pain it is to find the right size for your climbing shoe, it changes with each brand and almost with each model. Luckily, this is much easier for kids. Simply choose a full or half size above shoe size, that way you get them to wear thick socks as they grow up.
La Sportiva Stickit
The Stickit from La Sportiva for example, is an excellent little shoe that blends function and fun. The innovative closure system guarantees a custom fit and offers tension regulation for the young, growing foot. This system allows you to use the same shoe even as the foot grows into the next size range thus making this model truly “long life”.
As you see the choice is not the easiest and it is best for your kids to come try some shoes on. We are here for you at CCS and happy to help find the perfect fit.
