Comfortable all-round shoes suitable for day-long routes
Strike is a typical all-round shoe. Its slight asymmetry gives it a sport climbing shoe character, while its other characteristics offer convenient comfort. It is suitable for those who need sufficient performance and at the same time need to wear climbing shoes all day long. Its straight profile, relaxed heel rand and padded tongue provide comfort necessary for all-day climbing and bouldering without the need to take the shoes off too often.
I bought these after hearing how comfortable they are and seeing how well they perform. My climbing buddy has a pair and he raves about them. Unfortunately I couldn't get my feet into them. The sizing is exactly the same as my la sportiva Katanas but the forefoot is narrower. My feet are on the wider side with a smaller heel, so regular women's climbing shoes are too narrow but some of the mens are sloppy in the heel. I returned them. Verx's customer service is excellent.
