      Comments about LA SPORTIVA TC Pro Climbing Shoes:

      I have a very hard time finding climbing shoes that that fit (those pesky funky toes), my favorite pair are the sportiva mythos and these are very similar in shape, perhaps a little bit more aggressive. I purchased this shoe on my way to climb cracks in Squamish, B.C. and broke them in within the 4 days i climbed in them, they are great for crack climbing as they do protect the ankle as well as provide good support for cracks. A friend of mine, a climber of 20 years, swears by them as well and stocks on multiple pairs at a time in fear of them being discontinued.

      Great boot. Very comfortable. Edges well out of the box. Smears OK with factory rubber. Rand is flimsy and may need replaced with first resoling. Great for all cracks and face climbing. OK for friction. Size them snug as they will stretch during break-in.

        I got these on a 20% off deal so the price was softened. I have around 20-25 pitches in and they are just awesome. They can be warm even with the vents in the mid summer. This is a face climbing shoe...not for slabs: I tried and the last just won't let me do the technique. I am a newer leader and they give you the confidance to do the placements and feel so secure. They excel when you are placing your toe on a small edge you just stick; no creep! I have looked down and just smiled at what I could stand securly on. I really made my partner look as I laughed while jamming up a crack and feeling NO TOE PAIN !!! This shoe excels in cracks. The method I use often failed and was super painful with my old shoes; with these it all hooks up and just is so plush. I did the inital break-in on these around the house to get the inital stretch done and get the tongue trained. I can see how the tongue can get folded if you aren't mindful and get it set correctly each time....so pay attention. I'll be buying a second pair at the next(discounted)chance to have a reserve pair.

        Cost > Performance > Durability

            Comments about LA SPORTIVA TC Pro Climbing Shoes:

            Stretch out more than might be expected when considering their beefy construction. Lace's extremely prone to annihilation when jamming any length of time in splitter hand size crack. Arch rand is bogus. Price does not compliment durability in any respect and is biggest cause for pause. All said, these units have potential. They climb well and are versatile but I believe they should still be considered in their prototype phase until La Sportiva addresses the seeming chorus of durability complaints.....or drop the price $50. As it is now, feels kinda like paying for it.

            Great Edging Shoe, But Not Sensitive.

            Pros

            • Ankle Protection - Yeah

            Cons

            • Stupid Lacing

            Best Uses

            • Cracks
            • Edging

            Comments about LA SPORTIVA TC Pro Climbing Shoes:

            Very good edging shoe. I haven't tried them in cracks yet but they should be great. They have no sensitivity though, it is like wearing a piece of plywood on your feet. This is OK for edging and should be great for cracks, but will not be good for smearing.

            Sizing - I wear a 9 wide street shoe, and 42 fit me OK (tight in the forefoot, but I got over it). There is lots of rubbber on this shoe, and it is a stiff shoe, so don't expect it to stretch much.
