- "Excellent - Try these"
Background: I've only been climbing for 10 months, so I haven't tried a ton of shoes, but I'll list the ones so you know what I'm comparing to. However, I have climbed 15 V6s at my gym in this time.
I've only climbed one session in these shoes so far, but it was incredible and I think I can finally rest, as it seems the search for the right shoe is finally over. Previously, I climbed with the solutions (size 9.5), and the Shark 2.0 (size 9.5). My street shoe is a size 10. The Iati (and Oasi) run big, so I'm using a size 8.5 and they aren't as tight as the 9.5 Shark 2.0, and they are much more comfortable. I could probably go to a size 8, but it seems unnecessary as they still fit snug and even with a big heel there was no sign that my heel would slip out at all. I also heard they hardly stretch.
They perform as well as my Solutions but are much more comfortable.
Yes, I would recommend this product.
