I’ll tell you what...I’ve gone through la sportivas and 5.10’s like water and I’m always wishing the rubber would hold up better. I climb on very sharp rock ( New River Gorge, WV and Red River Gorge, KY) and these things are BEASTS!!!! Not only are they amazing outdoor, but they transition to indoor flawlessly as well. I’ve had my 2020’s for about a year and they’re still as amazing as the first day I wore them.
Mark my words...I’ll NEVER stray from So iLL shoes.
NOT TO MENTION...the customer service was amazing. From start, tosending them back for resizing, to finish everything was smooth as butter!
I have many many pairs of climbing shoes of different brands but this one's it's my first So I'll and they are great, they are really fitted and for hard routes indoor or outdoor are the best of the best
This is my first pair of So Ill shoes and I’m enjoying them. They help so much in terms of gripping things. I started to break them in slowly at the gym, and now I’m testing them outside. So far so good. I did order a size up from my usual size and I’m happy with them.
Hands down the best climbing shoes I’ve climbed with. The SoiLL rubber definitely sticks to the chips and wall on smears, giving me a lot of foothold confidence.
I also get a lot of compliments and people chatting with me about them.
When they came on sale, I bought another pair for when my current ones wear out.
I really loved this shoe. I wear a size 8 in regular shoes and after reading the comments and talking to a sales representative ordered them in a size 8 as well. They fit perfect and don’t stretch much throughout the climbing session. The gold coloring gets me tons of compliments in the gym as well!
The 2020 Gold boasts a bold, metallic gold finish and is equipped with a thin padded tongue. The larger buckles give the tightening system power and sensitivity to mold the soft shoe to your foot.
An ultra thin midsole provides a softer more sensitive fit, creating an extremely lightweight aggressive climbing shoe. The toe box has been masterfully crafted to allow for a higher level of comfort and works conjunctively with the perfect amount of tension in the heel.
