I have strange feet. I'm sure a lot of other climbers feel this way as well. Climbing shoes, as we all know, are so different that it is difficult to really suggest a shoe. It seems to me that the Newton is one of the exceptions to this rule. This shoe is aggressive enough to climb high end bouldering problems, and yet comfortable enough for all day multi-pitch climbs. The only downside is one of the bones on the back of me heel sticks out a little far, and these shoes are incredibly painful to take off, but the pain is never there while they are on. I wear a 10.5 street shoe and the 11 are not only good for the comfort, but I can still boulder rather well in them and get on some tiny precise toe work. Add to this the stickiest rubber on the planet and I don't see why you shouldn't give them a shot. Synthetic with zero stretch. The lacing system also allows for a very precise fit, although watch the eyes, they can bend in the cracks and become sharp.
They are super stiff, but after a bit I'm able to smear in them perfectly well, but some adjustments will need to be made if you're used to flimpsy shoes like the mocs. They crack climb like a dream. Highly, highly recommended.
There's really nothing bad to say about them. I sized mine to fit comfortably, not painfully (sounds weird but...a full size up from my street shoe...) I can walk around in them without wincing even after cranking down on the laces, which are great and give you some fit leeway. You can crank down on them to squeeze out a tight fit or leave 'em loose. The soles are quite stiff and the rubber is insanely sticky, even when wet. Not even really sure how that works or why that same rubber isn't on my hiking shoes...
Anyway...I guess it's a "basic" climbing shoe (it's not shaped like a boomerang), but it's solid and well worth the price.
The suede soaks up rain/sweat, though. Takes awhile to dry, but it's still 5-stars...
I usually climb ice, but I decide to finally break down and try this whole rock thing. I usually wear a 10.5 shoe and I could barely get the 10.5 Newton to fit. 11, 11.5 and finally I hit size 12 before I got the right fit. I don't know if its my feet or my lack of experience with climbing shoes. Once I got the right fit I have felt very good on some indoor work. Very sticky rubber and stiff sole. I live in AK so most of my climbing is on nasty rock and in the cold. I expect good things.
Good, stiff forefoot, but not a heavily aggressive shape. I've only used this indoors, but it's held up well for dozens of uses. The toebox is large enough to fit my hobbit toes, but stills has a firm hold. As per usual, great 5.10 rubber for a solid smear. The only piece of note is that the synthetic material is super thick. It's even to the point of padding. To somebody that's looking for a minimal feel, it's not for you. It's just a lot of shoe. That being said, I've enjoyed it, and it's a great all around shoe for any crag.
Real good feel and super sticky rubber helps stick an edge! Great for trad and cracks climbs as well as sport. These are some good all around shoes that can handle multiple types of climbing and not leave your feet feeling abused. I wear size 13 street shoes, so I sized down to the Newton's 12 and have no major discomfort or hot spots. Again not super aggressive bottems, but they have some pretty pointed toes and a good heel. The lace gives it a tighter feel which is nice. Good solid shoes and a great price!
The extra interior padding makes these super comfy to wear for extended periods of time, which makes it great for trad/multipitch climbing. Stiff sole translates to very good edging ability, plus the Onyxx rubber is fairly sticky (not as sticky as C4 rubber though) and smears well. I really have nothing negative to say about them and will be buying a second pair soon!
I've had these for over 3 months. I've worn them both indoors and outdoors, bouldering and top roping. There's nothing I dislike about them. Very comfy, not aggressive, solid feel.
Just make sure to keep them in a well ventilated place after climbing, the extra padding on the inside tends to absorb sweat. My regular shoe size happens to fit very well.
This is my first pair of climbing shoes in almost 20 years. I've been using them at the rock wall with my kids at our gym for about a month now. The shoes are everything they're advertised to be. I'm really happy with the construction, fit and performance. At the sale price, they are an awesome value.
This is a great shoe with 5.10's characteristically sticky rubber. The sole is rather thick so you get a lot of stiffness and you lose a bit of feel. However, this is not a board lasted shoe. You can bend the sole easily if you try. Love the S-lacing. Very comfortable shoe!
I bought these shoes wanting a mildly aggressive comfortable edging shoe for the granite I typically climb on. I sized in line with my regular shoe size of 10.5 and the fit was snug. The shoe performed beyond its non aggressive look and stuck amazingly on small edges on granite and plastic. After about 3 months of heavy use the toe box had not budged in the least and the exceptional pressure on the joint of my big toe became too much to bear (that and the odor).
Bottom line, if these fit your feet the rubber is amazing and the shoe performs well but if you have a slightly longer big toe you are probably in for a world of pain.
If you have a morton's toe, this shoe is actually perfect for you! Alas I must be of an phylogenetically inferior breed and have a longer big toe. Let's just say 2h of V3/4's at the gym and I had hotspot blisters on top of BOTH big toes. I even went a half size up from my regular shoe size (7, and i usually wear 6.5)
On the plus side it's stiffer than morning wood and has excellent edging capabilities as advertised. The smearing isn't horrible but you have to figure out for yourself "how" and "which edge" you are smearing off of depending on the move.
