3/ Which climbing shoes are the best for beginners?
The best climbing shoes for beginners should be comfortable shoes with flat soles so that you can get used to climbing in climbing shoes with or without socks. High-quality rubber on the sole, heel, and toe, also provides a good grip on indoor rocks and rock walls.
For frequent rock climbing enthusiasts, a pair of well-fitting climbing shoes is very important and indispensable rock climbing equipment. To ensure that the climbing shoes have a snug fit, remember to try on a few more pairs before making a decision, especially paying attention to the feeling of the toe and heel. In addition to the pursuit of a fit, try to keep the whole foot in the shoe with some space, similar to the tightness of wearing a sock. Since everyone's foot is different, with a variety of foot widths and arches, Simond has designed a wide range of mid-level climbing shoes to choose from.
Climbing or bouldering shoes, chosen by advanced climbers, may have a particularly asymmetrical shape or an extremely downwardly curved sole, to provide the best grip on a variety of rocks or blocks on steep routes or difficult ground forces. And the toe cap will also have a much tighter fit to ensure true power across the entire foot. Climbers of this level will require different flexibility for the rubber of the sole, to meet the needs of sticking, side stepping, and various foot styles.
No matter which shoe you choose, don't forget to keep the soles as clean and dry as possible to avoid transferring mud onto the rock, not only indoors, but also outdoors.
