The shoe is very comfortable for a high performance shoe. I love how easy it is to get on and off. One of the shoes I received had a defect and the rubber peaked apart however after contacting So ill, they promptly addressed the problem. Great customer service! I climb 11s so I went with +1 to my street shoe size instead of 1.5. I am very happy with this as I am close to working 12s.
After worrying about the sizing conversion I went to my local gym and tried on a pair of Streets. I came home and ordered the Runners, then returned the next day and bought the Streets! I've never owned aggressive shoes but are digging both pair. The only thing that I don't like is having to decide which ones to wear. It turns out that the chart was spot on.
Recently got The Runner and have had a few trips to the gym. Can confirm these shoes are
1. Sticky 2. A head turner 3. Good to go all-rounder 4. Great fit for me personally at my street shoe size, really concentrates my toe to the tip of the shoe.
Recommended for anyone who enjoys style and function.
Definitely looking forward to SoiLL's Fall 2019 drop!
Finally wore out my SoIll kicks and was psyched to upgrade to these beauties. I'm already smitten after a first climb.
I bought these as my first aggressive shoe and was looking for a more performance fit but I didn't want to sacrifice comfort.. These did not disappoint! I opted for the same size as my old shoes, and after only a few hours climbing they had broken in enough to wear for a full gym session. Rubber is great; smears well and holds on everything. Love them and will definitely buy another pair of SoIll shoes when these guys wear out.
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.
