Why? Because climbing shoes that are cambered and very asymmetrical can become very uncomfortable – they force the foot into a different position, which provides better precision and power but only if the technique is good.

Beginner climbers who aren't used to the feel of climbing shoes and will be using larger holds won't get any benefit from a more advanced shoe and possibly find them painful.

 Once you’ve progressed you can try this kind of climbing shoe to enhance your climbing experience.
