I'm very lucky because I think I just found my favourite climbing shoe. I wasn't sure if it will be any good, I just ordered it because they look awesome, but after having my second pair in use already I'm 100% addicted. It's quite an aggressive shoe with a narrow heel and rubber on the right places. Perfect for heels, toes edging AND even smearing... I know right Whaaat?! Yeah for me this shoe does both, which I never had before - was always climbing with a stiff and a soft pair. The rubber is really really good and you can - after breaking them in - stand on the smallest holds (indoors & outdoors). Bought my first pair in the recommended size and same ever since (street shoe size 7.5 / bought 8). The two straps are solid and making the shoe even better fit ...AND they look so pretty ;)
Right out of the box these shoes did not disappoint. High quality craftsmanship, superb fit, and darn right sexy. Could you ask for more?
I was interested to see how the rubber would feel and perform since it's new to the market. Honestly, besides the color, I can't tell a difference between it and other manufacturers. Superb and stylish.
Keep up the good work So Ill Team. You've got a lifelong customer here.
I love my So Ill shoes! They have a nice edge, are sticky enough to get me traction on the sketchiest foot chips, and they often attract attention at the gym for not being basic. I love the Active Denim. These have been my go-tos since I bought them. I didn't know how well they'd hold up but they've survived over a year of gym and crag sessions with just some dirt stains to show for it.
My family and I love to take hold of the Iron Palm for a little while in the evenings. The boys love it and I love the work out that it gives me.
I took these shoes to Joshua Tree last weekend doing 3rd/4th class ascents for top rope rigging and I was very pleased with the comfort and performance of these shoes. They work! You can't find a better style anywhere else.
I got the streets and have been using them for a week now.
My street shoe size is 12 and i got the 12.5 Street. As the sizing recommends, it is a tight fit but i am also still in the process of breaking it in. It shouldnt stretch but the rubber should fit the mold of my feet a little better.
These shoes are awesome! I love them, they stick extremely well and give a strong sense of comfort esp when bouldering on the 45 degree wall.
I had been eagerly waiting for the release! I love them so much that I got another pair as a backup a few days later! The fit and stretch are perfect for my needs bouldering and style is on point. Great job SoiLL , keep the great products coming!
Seriously though, the teal is the best thing ever, but it's not just a gimmick - the shoes are incredibly comfortable, especially for the aggression, and afford a great amount of control (at least in my experience so far climbing indoors on routes rated 11b/11c...) I also absolutely love the quality of the rubber - I've been climbing in these for over two weeks now and there's no evidence the toe is even so much as scuffed, which is great because I plan on keeping them around for a long while :) In short, so far, so awesome!
Really really psyched on these jeans. I hesitate to even call them jeans, the stretch in them is unbelievable. I've worn them almost daily since I got them and they are just so amazingly comfortable that I never want to take them off. Soft, unrestrictive, and they look really sharp. The waist fits the same as Levis, with the length being a little longer (definitely not unreasonable, and nice for taller guys. The fit is a little bit more relaxed than the Levis 511, but more on the slim side, great for climbing in. Can't hype these pants up enough.
I wear a size 14 normal shoe.. these only size up to 13.. yet a euro 46.5 fits me perfect. (Mythos) I can cram my feet in these crazy shoes.. the rubber absorbs around the the rock and sticks like crazy not to mention perfect precision.. I'm glad they included a roll of tape for my poor toed while I get to climbing
