What’s good for you, or your child, or your friends or us, might not be right for you.
Everyone and everyone’s foot shape is different. You need to take into account arch type, comparative length of toes, width of foot, angle of heel, skill level, socks or no socks, indoor or outdoor, type of rock, climbing style… the list goes on.
As you can see when it comes to what climbing shoe is best the answer is actually what’s best for each climber?
So, Simond create a number of different climbing shoes at each level, with different fits and different properties to cater to all types and abilities of climber. It’s down to you to investigate those different styles, try a few pairs on and work out which one is right for you.
