The shoes feel aggressive. I am normally 7-7.5 street size. The Reflex in 7 is painfully tight on the big toes, but about right for the other toes. The leather top has a great feel. The colors are not the most inspired, but the overall design is nice.
If you’re looking for something that will help you transition from a beginner to intermediate level, this is a solid and affordable choice. I had been climbing twice a week for about a month or so and was desperate to get my own pair of shoes (also so I wouldn’t have to wear stinky rentals anymore!). What drew me to the Reflex was its leather upper which allows for the shoe to mould to your feet (I am street size 6.5/7, and bought size 6 – snug fit, but I know it’ll stretch). I much preferred the leather upper to the synthetic ones because of this (and it’s made in Italy, so you know you’re only getting the best).
They are lovely shoes. Beautiful design and color. However they do run small. I usually have a size 37 for street shoes, but irregular long toes so I go for 37,5 just to be sure, but it’s still too small for me (yeh I suppose climbing shoes should be tighter than usual but not the kind of tight that hurts and prevents you from climbing). So if you like them do make a safe bet by ordering 1 size up. I have to return the shoes though since they are too small for me.
the shoes are great but they are too small, i got an equivalent to a size 8.5 and im usually a 7.5 sometimes 8 to be safe. 8.5 should have been more then big enough and it isnt 🙁 i would return but i had no choice but to wear them for a bit so i most likely cant now. i already had the climb set up and they arrived the day of the climb so i had no choice. i do recommend the shoes, just be careful of the size.
Im normally a size 6 in normal shoes and 5.5 in heels so I got a 5.6 in this shoe since it does run a little small.
I think the price was too high not to mention the tax i had to pay, i could buy better shoes adding a little bit more. I had scarpa before and they are not endurable, i had a hole on the toe after couple of months indoor climbing which wasnt very intensive.
Even though, not the most technical shoes, but that wasn’t what i was after. I wanted a pair I can wear for a couple hours without having to remove them between climbs (I go indoor), this pair of shoes does just that. Comfortable, good fit to my feet. The only complain I have is that the rubber isn’t very sticky, hopefully it gets better after a few wears.
Perfect shoe for me as a beginner indoor climber. Comfortable enough to wear for 1.5-2hr (not painful torture). Appropriately snug and fitted.
Back of the shoe sits higher than other brands and rubs my Achilles but I developed a callus after a few wears.
it was too small for me and need to return it.
