    Comments about LA SPORTIVA Tarantula Climbing Shoes:

    The product is great for what I use it for. I'm new to the sport and these are the first new pair I've worn so take my opinions with a grain of salt. The shoe fits for my wide feet, and the soles don't seem as tactile as a pair of echos I used but they seem good for indoor bouldering. Only thing I'm not real keen on is the back of the shoe digs at my achillies tendon, but that may change as it fits better to my foot.

      Comments about LA SPORTIVA Tarantula Climbing Shoes:

      I bought these to save my feet and tight Testarossas to warm up with in the gym. Good warm up or beginner shoe. Not aggressive at all and the rubber is too thick for my taste. I sized down 2 full European sizes and they fit tight but will most likely stretch a bit. They seem like they will break in pretty quick. Definitely not a performance shoe. The price was right and shipping was quick.

            This is the first climbing shoe that I have purchased and it is definitely better than climbing in tennis hsoes, obviously. The lace up allows them to be easily adjusted for comfort.

              I had to try on a few sizes but am satisfied now! The laces come undone easily and they are hard to tighten, but that's what you get when you don't go for velcro ;)

                Bought this pair after reading all positive reviews. My first pair of climbing shoes and will prob invest in another pair when on sale. Super sticky rubber and great feel for foot holds. after 2-3 uses they are broken in to the point of comfort while at the gym for 2 hours. Great all around shoe at a great price and I feel they will last a long time.

                  I did a lot of reading about shoes and decided to buy these as my first pair. They fit great and I even went a size down from what I would normally wear and they are still comfortable. Easy to get on and well made.
