Climbing Shoes How to Choose

Sports shoes-how to choose hiking shoes? It depends on your level of preparation and where you will use. Here are some tips to buy shoes and climbing shoes, for beginners and advanced.

The climbing sports shoes are the natural “extension” of the athlete or the simple fan that is dedicated to this wonderful discipline. Choose them carefully is critical to have the right feeling and optimum safety.

They Must Give The Feeling Of Having Bare Feet

Primarily as they go “feel” the climbing shoes? If you’ve never tried and you are neophytes to wear them also will experience discomfort, will “tighten”. This is because it must be very “clingy”, give a sensation similar to that which would try to bare feet .

The constituent parts of a classic sports shoe developed (even) with a view to enhance the comfort during the performance, to soften shocks and avoid hassles like talloniti etc., To hold tight and protected the seams and joints.

When climbing, however, the shoe must be perfectly adherent to ensure maximum freedom of movement and maximum grip and ultimately need not be a “something more” between those who scale the rock (or the wall in the gym) but must “simply “facilitate the movements and took them.

Important: Numbers 1-2 In Less

Usually for climbing shoes you take at least one size smaller than what we use for walking shoes. The aim is to enhance the performance shoes with the most members as possible and with no spaces between the shoe itself and foot lines, particularly at the front where your fingers touch the edge. Your foot is in the shoe more closely all form a single rigid body.

Obviously you have to make a distinction between those who start and eserti and super-prof. The former can also avoid exaggeration and simply choose very “compact models”, that feel like a glove on the foot , and not too arched in the sole (see below), without exceeding going back in numbers and thus avoid martoriarsi feet .

The latter will also take shoe sizes 2-3 less and much more technical.

Shape And Sole According To Their Level And Degree Of Difficulty

Every climb has its own degree of difficulty. There are several ways to classify, the most used by us is the French scale, simplifying, ranging from 3 to 9 with the letters a, b, c and the + symbol that identifies the intermediate degrees.

The most difficult routes ever have, therefore, the highest number, while the ascents for beginners are those from 3-4. For a practical level of initial and early approaches (and then climbing more simple) you may be used, as mentioned above, also shoes “more comfortable”, in straighter and flatter sole.

For degrees of intermediate and expert preparation, and then to higher difficulty climbing, you must already have the most “professional shoes”, possibly with asymmetrical soles and more arched. At the sight you will easily notice that the most experienced climbers wear “wrong” shoes and highly arched so as to enhance the sensitivity and gripping points of the foot, which is essential on the most challenging walls.

Different Shoes For Different Uses

If you are facing long roads, the wide extension of the walls, it will also be able to have a fairly comfortable shoe that gives the ease of carrying a much expanded use over time.

The right balance between “convenience”, sensitivity and stiffness is still a personal assessment and also to adapt to the land where you practice often serves more rigidity because only with the point, perhaps in a micro-support, you have to support all the weight of the body.

In specialized shops you will certainly find help for correct choice; in many online store, then you are already models divided according to the use and the level of practice.

And cleaning?

How do I clean from climbing-shoes? The care of his shoes is essential: the operation should be repeated after every climb and shoes must not be left next to direct heat sources and not even in the car trunk in summer (the rubber parts become detached).

The sole should be cleaned with special brushes to remove all the small residues. And the shoes can resole in shops and shoemakers specialized professionals, which can certainly be convenient for high-end models.
