Took a while to stretch as bought 2 sizes too small, but once worn in they've performed perfectly and lasted me a long time. Definitely be buying a new pair once these are through!

Not just for speed climbers: climbing shoes with hook-and-loop fasteners

Hook and Loop Fastening Shoes

It’s not surprising that climbing shoes with hook-and-loop fasteners are loved by many. Since climbing shoes are so tight, it’s always great to be able to take them off whilst taking a break. If you’re not sure what size you should get, then you should definitely check out our size guide.

Advantage: hook-and-loop fasteners allow for a quick on/off

Since these climbing shoes are easy to put on and take off, your feet will hurt less after prolonged wear. Even if you’ve broken them in, it’s still nice to take them off when you’re not climbing. Plus, when you’re belaying, hook and loop shoes put weight on the soles and reduce the pretension. As a result, you’ll ultimately increase the sole’s lifespan.
In addition, the hook-and-loop fasteners offer more arch support, making them great for bouldering and technically-demanding routes.

Disadvantage: their fit is less firm

The fasteners on innovative hook and loop shoes can’t be tightened as much as laces. So, if you have an extremely difficult sport climb coming up, then you should opt for a model with laces.
