The TarantuLace is an unlined leather climbing shoe with asymmetric shape for advanced performance. The RN45 shoe shape is great for upper end performance without hurting your toes. The synthetic leather overlay lacing harness adds great support for entry to mid level climbers and the unlined leather is comfortable and soft. The aggressive rubber heel rand lets you stand in micro edges and the FriXion® RS rubber is hard wearing yet sticky for long life. This is great shoe for gym climbers and outdoor climbers that need a one-quiver shoe that does it all.

 

• Quick pull lacing harness that delivers a snug precise fit

• Durable FriXion® RS rubber compound for great grip and durability

• Lined tongue for moisture management

I wonder how many hours I got out of these; began climbing in Jan and in earnest by June. I pivot a lot on toe holds and have blown out the toes. Is that common or should I adjust my tech? Have ask next time at the gym.

+1 to all the comments citing fit and comfort, truthfully I do pull them off occasionally due to discomfort, operative word being occasionally. Shopping for replacement.

Review for TARANTULACE
I got these shoes as a beginner climber and they fit and feel perfect. Would highly recommend these shoes - just make sure to try them on in person!

Review for TARANTULACE
I recently got into bouldering a few months ago and I must say, in the gym, or out on a rock, they handle well for me as a beginner. Being that these shoes are mainly for beginer to intermediate climbing shoes, they were very comfortable and not too agressive in shape, but i can still climb hard all day in the climbing gym or out bouldering on some solid rock! These shoes will handle it!

Review for TARANTULACE
I don't understand these shoes. I used to climb in a pair of Scarpa Boosters that were like nineteen sizes too small and hurt my toes. The performance of that shoe was excellent. After they were completely blown out I decided to change things up, and four or five pairs of shoes from many different brands, I ended up with a pair of these. These shoes do everything, and they do everything well. From Standard route on Whitehorse, steep twelves at Shell and Shagg, and cracks like Pine Tree Eliminate, I have never been in a place where I felt like the rubber/shoe was not keeping up with me. I have one pair and they are sized to fit my perfectly. To give a frame of reference to the comfort level of these shoes, I ran most of the "walk-offs" in these shoes on both Whitehorse, and Cathedral Ledge with no discomfort. It's incredible to me that I can jog off the climbs with them; but there is absolutely no movement of the shoe around my foot so I can still edge, smear and heel hook in the worst places. Love these shoes..

We are new to climbing, and I am a research to death before I buy kinda guy. We did a lot of looking, trying on, and found these to be the most comfortable yet functional shoe. My wife and I both bought a pair and we love them. Will let you know how much the stretch. We bought 1 full size lower than our street shoes and while they were tight, they weren't painful. Looking forward to more climbing.

Review for TARANTULACE
This shoe has served me well both in the gym and outdoors. While a little slick at first, the rubber has become very sticky and trustworthy. I'm able to smear and hook very well with this shoe. Additionally, the mold is a great fit, and gets better with every wear.

Review for TARANTULACE
Apparently, climbing shoes aren't supposed to be comfortable. They should turn your foot into an unmovable fist, and you should need to take them off every 10 minutes to decramp your toes. Well, somehow, these shoes are super comfortable all day, while still providing grip, and support. I can edge on tiny features without any pain, smear with confidence, and keep them on while I belay. Of coarse, I did spend a long time at REI trying on every shoe, and these just seemed to fit my foot better than others. You may not have the same amount of comfort that I do. They are not the most aggressive, or expensive shoe, but they work great for me.
