TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

SHOE SHAPE

Straight climbing shoe with flat profile.
Ensures comfort.

SOLE

XS Grip material is designed and made by VIBRAM.
It ensures excellent grip, no matter where you’re climbing.

SIZING RECOMMENDATIONS

For beginner climbers, we recommend choosing a shoe the same size as your normal size.
They should feel tight without hurting.
If you are a climber working to improve your skills, you can buy them tighter (1 size below normal, for example), but it's important they don't hurt, so that your foot can develop mobility, proprioception, and strength. You will also enjoy climbing more.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.

RESOLING TIPS

The sole bushing wears out quickly when climbing. For regular climbers, the life of the bushings is generally 6 months to 1 year. This depends on many factors (type of rock or resin, climbing style, types of routes, etc.). As soon as you see the synthetic leather through the bushings, you must get them resoled. If you pierce the synthetic leather, resoling will be difficult. Our Decathlon workshops offer resoling services to extend the life of your shoes.

Other than the dye of the shoe that stain your feet there is not much complain for what it is. Except that for a little more you can get better shoes.

I normally where a size 12 and it was easy to find in store. I have had issues trying to find shoes that go to this size. I love the fit as I can spend 4-5 hours with groups in these shoes

Purchased for indoor climbing. Pleased with how they fit and perform. Disappointed that blue dye leaches onto my feet - maybe due to friction or sweat. I am hoping this will cease to happen the more I wear them.
Brought size 42, but I would say they're a 39-40.

Too small. Usually I'm a size 41-42. These are a size 42 and they're too tight. Therefore, badly sized.
Super happy with these climbing shoes

Great beginner shoe or comfort shoe
Tom (United Kingdom) Used for More than 1 year
I have gone through 2 pairs of these shoes - they are a bargain. I have climbed V4/V5 bouldering in them and 6b+/6c in lead and top-rope. These were my second beginner shoe (having worn several other beginner pairs previouly) and I now carry on using them as a comfort pair and for roped climbing where comfort matters more and I can't be bothered to mess about with different shoes when belaying.

This shoe has several advantages for a beginner. Firstly it has a stiff sole with rubber running through the midsole. Stiffness helps to support your weight during edging and means less foot strength is needed - something beginners will lack and will need to build up. Secondly, it has Vibram XS Grip rubber. This is a quality rubber and on the grippier/softer side of the Vibram range. Many of the expensive soes use the same rubber so it's great that Simond have used this - many other beginner shoes use a cheaper rubber. Finally, this has 5mm rubber and a thick toe rand. Beginners will burn through rubber with poor foot work (trust me!), so your first pair won'tlast long. The thicker the rubber the more they will last and 5mm is about as thick as it gets for climbing shoes - most advanced pairs will only have 3.5mm ruber. The Rock+ last me about 80-100 climbing sessions before I get down to the toe rand.

Most other beginner shoes have these exact same characteristics for good reason. However they are usually a good £30 more expensive at least. THe main thing that matters is a good fit, so if these fit you, buy them because they are a steal!

They are a few poorer features. The heel is padded. This makes it very comfortable but means there is less of a tight fit around the heel. This makes a difference for aggressive heel hooks. That said, the rand rubber covers the whole heel so you can get quite a bit of contact. The build quality is less good vs some of the bigger names. The velcro buckles are a bit cheap, and the rand loosen up and peeled off the fabric where the foot flexes a lot after 3-4 months of climbing. However, the shoes have always lasted me a good year and the rubber will be worn before any of the rest of the shoe wears through, so its not a major problem. Finally there is some poor attention to detail. The rubber has a indented Vibram stamp - Simond don't really care where the stamp goes so there are many pairs where the stamp ends up under the toe. This is stupid because you lose 1-2mm of rubber in a crucial area and can be entirely avaoided if they made these with a bit of care. Same with the gluing of the sole to the base of the shoe - a bit careless in places.

I still recommend this shoe despite quality control issues. These aren't shoes you will resole and they will last you a good while and you'll lose the rubber before any of the rest of the shoe breaks.

Size at street size for a comfortable fit and 1 size down for a tighter performance fit.
Stretched
Anne (United Kingdom) Used for
I bought these shoes as they were reasonably priced and comfortable. However after 6 weeks they have really stretched, giving me very poor grip when climbing. I have decided to abandon them as the loose fit makes them unsafe to climb in.
Response of the brand
Hi Anne,

I am sorry to hear that the Rock + climbing shoes did not meet with your expectations. Could you reply telling me where exactly the shoes started to stretch? This way I can pass on the feedback to the product designer.

Many Thanks
