finally a shoe that offers an eye catching colorway without risking quality and functionality. SoiLL is a fresh new company in the climbing world.
As soon as these went on sale I had no more excuses to make a smooth transition from beginner/intermediate into a more aggressive shoe. Footholds are easier, grip is nice, no more dead spaces inside the shoe.
I would recommend going up 2 sizes to ensure they aren’t too snug!
I love these shoes! I've owned SCARPAs & Evolvs and these are by far the most comfortable shoes. They have tons of cushion on the tongue which makes it comfortable to cinch them down really tight to your foot. I am normally a women's size 7 in street shoes and I'd recommend going for a 8 1/2. Anyway, totally amazing shoes I will definitely buy So IiLL's again in the future :)
This shoe is my first moderately aggressive shoe and it has been a great choice. It fits perfectly with no dead space, grips very well, and has made my transition to more advanced climbing shoes easy. Plus the color is sick. Very stoked on these. The pic is of them fresh out of the box.
I was afraid these shoes would be too aggressive for me when I first got them, but after wearing them in the gym and breaking them in a little bit, they're absolutely amazing. They're surprisingly comfortable and the dark matter rubber has just enough hold. They're not too tight, they breathe well, and overall, they're easily my favorite climbing shoes.
I will say that the color is rather attention-grabbing in the gym. I've had a lot of looks and questions about them based on the style and color. They're a great conversation starter!
These shoes look just as pictured! They are bright and we'll made! Unfortunately I ordered a size and a half up from my normal climbing shoes and they are much too tight, which is so sad because I absolutely could not wait to show them off at my local gym!
The padded tongue, breathable mesh upper, and thin lining offer 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.
