This is the second pair I've bought. The first pair held up really well until my trip to spain tore holes in the soles. but the rubber is really soft and the shoes are really comfortable. I wore my exact shoe size and that fit very well.
So these were my first pair of SoiLL shoes. I really liked them! They are a nice first aggressive shoe. They are a very flexible shoe which makes them very comfortable for aggressive shoes; they are a good introduction to the world of aggressive shoes. I also liked the rubber a lot! They are very soft and sticky. This makes them very nice for smearing, slab, and slippery rock. I would highly recommend these shoes!
I ordered bigger size, compared to what store suggested based on my current climbing shoes but they are too small for me:( I have quite wide feet though..
However they are extremely good looking and I have a feeling the right size would be very comfortable.
I love these shoes. I bought them a half-size smaller than the sizing chart recommended so it's been a rough break-in period but I wanted to have as tight of a fit as possible, although they did hurt a bit the first two sessions. Little by little, they have been conforming to my feet and they feel wonderful on any wall I try. Highly recommend buying these as a first climbing shoe!
I am a size 11 4E shoe and I ordered size 12.5. Since my foot is so wide shoes fit tight with length lost around my heel. These fit perfectly with my toes bent into a powerful down turn that helps me to stand on the smallest holds. I have been really impressed with how these shoes instantly improved my footwork. The soft rubber has amazing grip, but it is clear that it wears a bit faster than shoes with less grip. They are great for heel hooks, the only place I find these shoes lacking is when toe hooking as you would expect since it does not have rubber covering the top of the shoe.
The padded tongue, breathable mesh upper, and thin lining offers comfort and reliability. Crafted with synthetic materials to create a long lasting fit (minimal stretch) and a three point velcro closure system, the Runner is a supreme climbing shoe blending fashion and function.
A medium stiffness highly downturned toe provides precision in technical or steep overhung climbing. The fish-hook thin midsole enhances edging power for gym and outdoor climbing.
