the color of the chalk bucket stands out in the gym. matches well with the street LV as well. it swallows a whole pack of chalk and able to use it to contain loose chalk when i'm refilling smaller chalk pouch.
Great pressure all the way around the finger, even my pinky finger. After a long training session it leaves my fingers feeling great.
These work great, very clean cut. The casing is comfortable in the hand and does a good job keeping the clippings from spreading all over.
I have always been a fan of soft shoes and aggressive shoes but it was hard for me to find a shoe that did well in both. These shoes were the answer. Slipped on and fit snug like a glove. I actually went down 1/2 from my street shoe size and with the softness of the shoe it was gentle on my feet and toes. My heels are always on point when I'm hooking the most delicate crystal. Trusting the dark matter on volumes for coordination movement was easy. The rubber is so sticky. I will get few pairs of these before the PRO model comes out.
I will buy again for gift to my friend :)
These are my favorite leggings for climbing and aerial silks. They’re durable, grippy (on the silks), and comfortable. I love the high waist and the pockets too!
I was waiting for some months and it was totally worth it. I'm 6'2" and 192 lbs and was afraid that my legs might be to big for a slim fit look. 32x32(M) fits perfect and it's not too tight. Nice for climbing and daily use. I forgot about the thing with punitive tariffs, but anyway, would buy them again.
i look forward to having the shoes.
so faster delivery -amazing
it,s better the shoes than another shoes
(colorful, fitful, fashionble)
i usually waer shoes 265-270
(i ordered toms shoes 275(9.5)
i haver worried about the size before the shoes have been arrived at the my home
These pants are very comfortable, super soft, stretchy, and breathable. Great for wearing in warmer conditions. I wash mine on a gentle cycle and the fabric has held up very well. I wasn't sure about the mid-rise waist as I tend to like high-rise but the fit is good and they have become some of my favorite pants for working out and doing yoga.
I had serious doubts regarding dark matter rubber. I thought it would be mediocre. Oh boy was I wrong! I seriously like it more than vibram, stealth, friction, or anything else I’ve tried. Softer, grippy, but super sturdy. Their sizing is pretty spot on in the descriptions as well. These pop when you’re on the wall. Will buy more from So iLL
I loved so ill for their look at first. But they are also soooo comfortable and these 2020 are aggressive enough for those little crimps.
These shoes are amazing. When I was shopping around and reading different articles nobody mentioned So iLL, which is just dumb to begin with. They are incredibly sticky and are great for edging, heal and toe hooks and they look and feel amazing. If you are on the fence about what brand you want and you are thinking about an aggressive shoe. Look no further than the So iLL runner LV
After climbing in these shoes for 3 months, I’d have to say that the blemish pair performs just as well as the first pair of New Zeros I’ve owned. The combination of precision from the downturned toe feature and stickiness from the soft rubber, allows my toe to come into more contact with the hold its placed on. For the same performance and quality of the original pair at half the price, the blemish New Zeros is an amazing deal and is the most worth it climbing shoe I've purchased at $80. Thank you So ILL for offering these deals on your beautiful climbing shoes :D
got 2 pairs one of each for my girlfriend and her climbing partner and they've enjoyed them to max. sufficient support, easy in- out between climbs and most importantly, comfy. the size chart is true enough to fit so do take note about the 'beginner' chart and 'advanced' chart differences as they really do make a difference.
Awesome shoe! I decided to downsize half a size from my begginer shoe fit on my zeros and they fit perfect. Once broken in they should fit like a sock. The only complaint I have is the pull tabs. Every other shoe model has them on the back and inside of the heel, making getting into the shoe pretty easy, but the FRPro’s has them on the back and outside of the heel, which makes it more difficult getting into the shoe because of the natural direction the force is applied on them. I would recommend changing them back to the inside of the heel for the next batch of shoes made. Otherwise highly satisfied with the design!
Useful and ergonomic. Plus, looks way cooler than carrying a piece of sandpaper.
The aesthetic of these shoes is enough to get heads turning or at least a conversation started at my local gym. So far, the edge has been great and sharp, the velcro secure, and the rubber sticky and durable. What I've also found to appreciate is that the heel covers up a good amount of skin, protecting me from scrapes in sketchy heel hook situations.
I am a beginner climber on a budget and have been reluctant to purchase "beginner" climbing shoes that I'd either grow out of or wear out quickly. After reading all the positive reviews for The Runner, I took advantage of the deep discount offered by So ill and couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!
If you are interested in by-passing the loose comfort sizing that climbing gyms and retailers often recommend to beginners, So ill's beginner/intermediate sizing guide is exactly right for a more aggressive fit. I wear size 11 street shoes and the size 12.5 is a tight (lengthwise) fit. I tape my big toes to avoid a bit of skin tear around the knuckle, otherwise, the shoes are extremely comfortable and I anticipate the shoes will better conform to my feet after the initial break-in period.
As an added unexpected bonus, the downturned toe-box offers far more support for my injured tendon big toes than the beginner shoes I've been wearing thus far - allowing me to toe hook and rotate on small holds without pain!
And the colourized (I'm Canadian) rubber sole? So ill!
If you're a beginner and on the fence about The Runner, don't be. Trust the overwhelmingly positive reviews.
I don't like say things like "best shoe on the market!!" Because it does very little and it's subjective.
So for those of you wondering about sizing I wear a 37 on skwamas 37.5 on testarossas and fit nicely in size 6.5 for unparallels regulus.
I ordered size 7 of these shoes which is the same as my street shoe size. Yes I ordered half a size smaller than the recommended because I like my shoes really extra tight.
So far the shoes have been great and what impressed me the most were the heels, I heel hook a lot and have been told that I do it excessively but these shoes have a good ridge on them and depending on where you heel they maintain certain amount of sensitivity unlike the skwamas which is just a rubber cup killing all sensation.
The split sole makes a difference especially for a shoe thats stiff as this one. By removing the middle section it makes toeing in on stuff much nicer
All around I've enjoyed climbing with the shoe so far
Can't say much about durability since I've only had them for a week or two.
One thing that might be concerning is the plastic ring thats used for the strap but we will see.
Great product for letting the shoes air out separate from the rest of my gear
Convenient to use at the gym.
It is essential to Boulder.
Because I forgot to cut nails unexpectedly ,,,,
When only this stretch is working, bouldering is also comfortable.
The appearance is fashionable, the contents are sportswear.
Highly valuable clothing is recommended
I bought these for my girlfriend who decided to take up climbing and she loves them. She noted the clear difference she feels with them on and it has noticeably increased her confidence with sticking. The color is more a champagne pink and not too bold, which looks so crisp and clean in real life. If I wasn’t so in love with the fit of my all black the streets I would probably try these out myself.
It's exactly as described. Lightweight, perfect hand size, and the two different coarseness sides are very convenient.
What an awesome shoe! The look is super sleek and classy, the back is very comfortable and bends down easily when stepped on for easy slip-on belaying, the cork insole is revolutionary though does need a little breaking into at first, and the fit is good (may fit a little small, so go up a size if you're close).
My feet are 24.5cm and I went with a size 9.5 shoe. Almost sent them back because of the pressure on the top of my toes. So glad I did not. Broke them in a bit at home. By the second visit to the gym they now feel great. Tight but in a good way. These are my first pair of aggressive type shoes and they have given me a lot more confidence in my foot work.
A good little brush that doesn't cost too much.
These pants are great. So stretchy and pretty good pockets. The pockets aren't as generous as in guys pants but I can manage to fit my phone in sideways (pixel 2).
Sized down as suggested by others and glad I did.
As usual, so Ill gear are really the best! Thank you So Ill
I've tried several pairs of climbing shoes over the last 7 years, and the Street LVs have such a unique feel. They're comfortable despite the aggressive fit, and the softer material used near the ankle bone is such a blessing (my previous climbing shoes usually dug into that area). Initially I ordered 1.5 sizes up as per the sizing suggestion, but exchanged them for an additional half size up and they are perfect. They're still very tight but a bit more bearable for me - the first pair would have been solid if I was still climbing 3-4 days a week, but my feet just aren't used to that aggressive of a fit anymore. The exchange process was really easy as well. I'll update when I get to actually climb in them, but from what I can tell I think they're going to perform great!
i took a chance with this ones because i dont ussually love jeggings and also never felt confortable climbing with jeans but since they had great reviews and already tried the joggers and loved them i said well, lets give them a chance. They are way more than jeggins, you can easily wear them for your everyday and also offer great stretch. in one word - versatile - give them a chance and you wont regret (dont forget to read the sizing chart though)
i just used this for the fist time yesterday for rockclimbig a 5.10c at huasteca. they performed just well, i felt really confortable. You can really trust the grip, and i loved the laces they make an even better fit.
These are great bouldering shoes but suited for advanced+ climbers!
These jeans are some of the best jeans I've ever worn. The jeans are strechy and are very comfortable. I really reccomend them for everyone and everyday use and not only climbing.
These shoes obviously look amazing but were very snug at first. Once they broke in I started enjoying these shoes more and more and now they are the best climbing shoe I’ve ever had! If you like to be noticed definitely grab a pair of these!!
