Product description

A real all rounder indoors and on the rocks - the Tarantula from La Sportiva! With its very light pre-tensioning and slight asymmetry, the Tarantula is extremely comfortable. This makes it perfect for both beginners and multi-pitch climbers. The FriXion sole ensures optimal grip and lots of friction on small footholds. It's also very durable. The fit of the Tarantula is also suitable for wider feet. The closure system with the offset mounted hook-and-loop closures allows for precise and individual fitting of the shoe to a variety of foot shapes.
Leather is used for the outer material; this not only prevents odor, but also expands, thus allowing the shoe to adapt to the foot. This means it might be wise to buy the shoes a little smaller than usual. Its three loops make the shoe comfortable and quick to get on and off. If you appreciate comfort but can't do without good grip, then we thoroughly recommend the Tarantula from La Sportiva for you!

Brilliant shoe for beginners to experienced

This was in fact my first pair of climbing shoes that I bought back when I began climbing (with laces). My first pair lasted me about 1 year of fairly constant use, mostly indoor bouldering, before giving in to the wear and tear I put them through. I also used them for trad and sport climbing where the performed brilliantly. Having bought other shoes that are "more advanced", I'm returning to these for their comfort for longer days at the crag! They're extremely comfortable, durable, and can handle a range of types of climbs, performing best on vertical / slabby climbs but can do well on some overhangs. I also very much like the back of the shoe which performs well doing heel hooks. They are a little weaker for toe hooks, but then these shoes aren't designed for that type of climbing, and the little bit of rubber over the big toe does help. Overall, I find myself buying these shoes again for their comfort, durability and versatility. They can be worn for hours and withstand quite a bit of abuse before your toes begin to poke through (you can of course get them resoled!). I certainly recommend them for a beginner climber looking for a shoe to carry them through the early stages and up to when you start climbing harder. I also recommend them to more advanced climbers looking for shoes that have great mileage, are comfortable, and can cope relatively well with harder sends. An excellent bang for buck.

Really good shoe

My husband liked these so much he bought a second pair when the first pair wore out - used for 3 hours a week for about 14 months before the edges wore down too much). They were an excellent beginner shoe, and now the second pair is for comfort on long climbing sessions.

Great shoes

Recommended for beginners. Sturdy construction, comfortably tight fit when fitted with AlpineTrek's fit guide. They seem durable. Only thing is sometimes don't feel as grippy as I'd like.
