Recommend me a pair of wide feet climbing shoe

Post by JohnRussel365 » Wed Jan 13, 2021 4:14 am

Hello guys! I'm planning for going for a climbing session to the Smith Rock State Park. Started shopping for the trip as well. Recently I've purchased a crash pad, water bottle, etc. But the problem rises when I wanted to purchase a pair of climbing shoes. Asking why? Well, I have a curse. I've got a feet size of US number 10. I've searched a lot online for the best wide feet shoes and found many. Is there anyone who can recommend me a pair of climbing shoes? Or which one you're using? Thanks in Advance!

Whatever is comfortable on your feet. Try them on. Unless you're sending 5.10's outside, your shoes being comfortable will not hold you back.

I'm 13 in a street shoe and have a wide forefoot... Some brands will offer "wider" shoes, e.g. Butora ( https://www.hmhoutdoors.com/butora/men-s/ ). Most brands now include in their descriptions, how the individual shoe fits. If I read a description that says buy you street shoe size for a "Performance" fit that says to me if I'm bouldering then I can expect to take those off after every send or attempt. I'd +1 in size if I wanted to wear for longer periods or have more comfort. Most shoes even if synthetic will soften/wear in after time also. Try them on for sure and don't be afraid to return if you're buying online during these times... As @c9h13no3 says comfort counts, you don't want not be able to climb in them.
