Wider climbing shoes

After years of ultra-running, my old climbing shoes are just too small and narrow. Can you recommend any brands that tend to run a bit wider in the forefoot?

Re: Wider climbing shoes

The Evolv Shaman and 5.10 Anasazi are go-to's for a wider foot. What kind of climbing will you be doing? Something with more camber like the Shaman is better suited to high-angle technical climbing, where the Anasazi is a great all-arounder. If you're climbing crack and slab, something like a 5.10 Moccasym will be a great choice with a wider shape.

Also, look for something that a shape that matches the contour of your toes, some shoes have a more square shaped toe box, some shoes accommodate a more oblong, pointed shape!

Hope this is helpful!

Butora Arcos. They are for wide feet and are medium aggressive. Check em out. I’d be suprised if they didn’t work out. 🙂

@REI-ReinkeM & @Bonfire  - Thanks for the recommendations! I tried on a few of those recommended, but ended up finding a set that fit before I saw suggestion of the Butora Arcos. I picked up the Tenaya Tanta, and thus far, have been pretty happy with them (worlds better than my old shoes).

Re: Wider climbing shoes

It’s funny how much better you get (and how much more fun you have) when you have a shoe that fits. I immediately leveled up when I was able to be confident while standing on a little chip. Weeeiiiiird
