Tenaya RA Climbing Shoe

The Tenaya RA Climbing Shoe is a secure and comfortable option that is well-suited for climbers who frequently smear and climb on technical faces. Despite the toe-box preventing the best fit for pockets and the construction being too soft for edging, the shoe is designed for proficiency on smearing, a slight down-turn for more aggressive climbs, and medium-stiffness for added versatility.

Tenaya Masai Climbing Shoe

The Tenaya Masai Climbing Shoe is a flexible, precise, and supportive option for those who want a snug, slim, and lightweight climbing shoe. The lack of stiffness means this shoe will likely not be as proficient on more aggressive problems, but for those who want flexibility, this is your best bet.

La Sportiva Finale Climbing Shoe – Women’s

The La Sportiva Finale Climbing Shoe for women is a supportive and durable shoe that is designed for beginner and intermediate climbers. The solid grip for bouldering makes this a great beginner sport shoe, while the toe shape and stretch over time make this not suitable for advanced climbers who need to use tiny footholds. The longer break-in time and average sensitivity may deter some from this model, but for beginners who want a comfortable and versatile option, this is a great bet.

Five Ten Anasazi Lace-up Climbing Shoe

The Five Ten Anasazi Lace-up Climbing Shoe shines for its exceedingly sticky rubber and medium stiffness that makes it particularly good for crushing granite faces and cracks. While the laces wear out quickly, the lacing does allow for a very adjustable fit, and the design of the heel has been re-worked for maximum comfort and snugness. While the shoe does not excel while bouldering or on overhanging terrain, it is a great all-around shoe that is exceptionally versatile and comfortable for most feet.

Five Ten Anasazi LV Climbing Shoe – Women’s

The Five Ten Anasazi LV Climbing Shoe for women is built for low-volume feet, and runs smaller and narrower than typical climbing shoes. The shoe offers good, sticky rubber and a sole that performs exceptionally well on edging and small footholds, and is responsive to the rock. Their comfort is top-notch, although for an expensive shoe, it is not very durable and the rubber wears out quickly.
