My first pair of So iLL shoes and loved them! Still comfy when tight, fairly technical and with a great quality grip. For me, ordering them in street shoe size was good for a performance fit. I was unlucky enough to have the tongue tear off over the first three weeks but that didn't alter their one-of-a-kind look that makes me the gym curiosity whenever I wear them.
I purchased these shoes about 6 months ago and fell in love with them right away. The dark matter rubber feels absolutely amazing on both indoor and outdoor walls. I have used many different shoes and I think I have found my new go too in the Runner and in So ILL in general. Highly recommended.
I ordered this shoe as my second pair of climbing shoes after now know what kind of shoe I might want (moderate) and knowing the correct size to wear. I love the runners! They are stylish, extremely comfortable, and have a great edge. They have definitely helped me to step up my game and use my toes more on the wall. These are a great all around shoe for bouldering, top rope, and sport climbing. Super happy with my purchase!
I ordered this shoe and did what was suggested of a half size bigger and it was just a little to snug for my liking so I sent them back. The exchange process was very smooth and today I received the new size of 10.5. They fit good and are comfortable I tried them out and I believe I made a good choice for this to be my first ever climbing shoe. Thank you Soill for everything.

I'd rather be quoting Michael Scott. This company is next level amazing to say the least. Coming from someone who is a bigger guy like Jason Momoa it is so refreshing to have a flexible, foot form fitting, beautiful climbing shoe. I tell EVERYONE who compliments me on my shoes (daily) that Soill is the best climbing shoe I've had the pleasure of cramming my foot in. And when I say cramming my foot, I mean slipping it on like Cinderellas turquoise climbing slipper. I recently had a problem with a pair that I had bought, and without skipping a hold or beat, they very generously replaced without hesitation like a nun asking for a donation. I literally want to climb so I can wear these shoes. All joking aside though, I have 2 of the same pair (the runner) that are a half difference in size. I wanted another pair because I was treated so incredibly well. Im one of those people who will still buy an album to support the band rather than downloading it for free. I have endless positive things to say about this company, but I'm running out of characters. I love you Soill and I know you love me too because you've showed it.
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.
