Climb On

You learned the basics and passed your climbing classes with flying colors as well as a belay badge strapped to your harness. Now it’s time to get new shoes, and we’d recommend the La Sportiva Men’s Kubo Climbing Shoe. It has a bit of a downturn and slightly asymmetric shape compared to most beginner climbing shoes, giving you an extra boost in performance and power. This is the perfect shoe if you’re eyeballing steeper boulder problems or routes in the climbing gym, and it’s excellent for stepping onto some real rock for a change, too.


  • A worthy step up from beginner climbing shoes
  • Moderate downturn and asymmetry ensure performance and power
  • Microfiber upper with leather panels and rubber toe patch for reduced stretching and greater toe-hooking
  • Cotton lining wicks moisture, dries quickly, and breathes to reduce odor
  • Moderately stiff midsole maintains support for long climbs
  • Vibram XS Edge rubber sole ensures solid edging performance on tiny footholds


  • Upper: Tubular Constructed Microfiber, Leather, 2 Heel Pull-Tabs, 2mm Vibram XS Edge Toe Rand Rubber
  • Closure: Dual Hook & Loop
  • Lining: Cotton, Padded Mesh Tongue
  • Midsole: 1.1mm full-length LaspoFlex
  • Sole: 4mm Vibram XS Edge
  • Last: PD 55
  • Weight: 200g, 7oz (½ Pair)
