Description

Designed to provide unparalleled comfort for all day cragging and gym sessions, the Momentum is a two-strap Velcro shoe that combines innovative technology with a classic, flat-last design to create an entry-level shoe that excels in performance. With an upper fabric that consists entirely of our Engineered Knit Technology, the Momentum provides stretch where you need it, support where it matters and all around exceptional breathability. We’ve also added a micro-fiber liner to the front of the shoe to minimize stretch and maximize comfort. The Momentum’s durable rubber is unique in that it’s molded—inspired by the way we forge our carabiners—versus cut from one sheet of rubber. This is our engineered solution to optimize our shoe’s rubber and rands for weight, consistency and comfort. Built for all-day comfort on moderate routes, boulders or gym sessions, the Momentum features a soft-flex midsole for sensitivity and is the perfect entry level climbing shoe. Get the whole story here.
 

  • Neutral, flat last for vertical climbing or all-day comfort
  • Engineered Knit Technology upper provides exceptional breathability and comfort
  • 4.3mm rubber is built for durability and molded for optimal consistency and performance
  • Soft flex midsole for added sensitivity and comfort
  • Two Velcro straps for fit adjustability

Extras

Momentum Climbing Shoes is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe for beginners (and even advance climber The first thing I notice is the sling is made of climbing rubber; that feature is amazing. The flexibility in the arch is interesting because you usually see that only in aggressive shoes. The flexibility definitely made it easier for slab climbing; I was able to do a V8+ indoor problem. The rubber is pretty sticky, I tried to bail on a V3 crack climb and my shoes got stuck (quick note: the shoes are not good for toe hooks and kinda suck at heel hooks). But for toeing and edging, its great; was able to send my first V6 outdoors in them. The sizing is true. A street shoe size should match these climbing shoe size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed bag Shoes showed good performance and were comfortable especially considering I only went down a half size compared to my street shoe. Usually I'm a minimum of a full size down and I feel the performance wasn't compromised a bit by such a close fit to my street size. My only issue is I have narrow feet and I had a little slop in the shoe volume. This was somewhat problematic when edging and I didn't have as much confidence as I felt my feet slightly slip inside the shoes. I do not have a problem recommending the Momentum base upon performance and comfort, I would only say it's probably not the best shoe for narrow feet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid climbing shoe Ok, so I’m not an experienced climber and I bought these for the gym. I’ve only worn one other pair of climbing shoes by another manufacturer. I have about 10 hours of climbing in these shoes. First, I love the look of these shoes, but it doesn’t really matter. As a larger climber, I like the size and shape of the toe box. The rubber seems fine and the comfort is that of a climbing shoe... I would recommend going a 1/2 size up as BD stuff seems to be consnistently small. I wear a 13, ordered a 13 but the 13.5 May have been a litttle better. All in all, fit, construction, quality, and function seem top notch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad at all! I bought these shoes to replace my last pair of climbing shoes that I had blown a hole through, and they are spot on. The Momentums are actually more gripy and comfortable than the last pair of shoes I had, which were similar in style. I really enjoy the way it looks and feels! Performance wise, it isn't bad at all, especially for a mesh style climbing shoe with Velcro straps. One thing that did throw me off was the sizing of the shoes, I had to go a whole size up from the size I usually wear. If the fitting isn't snuggle you'll definitely notice the seams for the pull straps in the heel of the shoes. Otherwise, a fantastic pair of climbing shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If the shoes fits, go with it When it comes to the fit of the shoes, treat yourself like Cinderella and find a pair that fits well. Unfortunately, this was not the case for me with the Momentum as it tended to pinch at the ball of my feet and sat a tad higher than I would prefer on my heels. I'm not sure if they need a break-in period, but it didn't provide me the stretch and comfort I needed while I was bouldering in the gym. On the upside, the NEO Friction performed well and was sticky on slab routes. Although the Momentum and I were incompatible, I would still recommend this product to a friend to test and see if the shoes fit comfortably for them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall pretty good I am still breaking them in but so far have found them to be on the smaller side. I ordered a half size up and they still seem to be a half size small. The shoes are great! Super soft material but seems to hold up, Well shaped toe box (at least for me with a wider foot), slightly lower volume shoe overall. Still testing out the rubber but seems to be comparable to others currently on the market. The edges and rand are well shaped, with a thick edge for longer use. Overall, I enjoy the shoes even with them being on the small side and will continue to break them in and test them out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gym Crusher I sized my shoes 1 size down from my street shoe size (from 13 to 12). The Momentum has a wide toe box, which allowed my feet to fill up the shoes neutral or flat design without cramping my toes like other narrow shoes. I found this sizing to be relatively comfortable for my longer gym sessions. Despite the conformed fit, the heel squishes if I heel hook. This trade-off for comfort does not compromise edging, though. I have found that these shoes still perform well on micro nubs and slabs. Stay away from any roof problems and excel at vertical and slightly overhung routes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all-around shoe! I've been looking for a comfortable shoe to wear in the gym, and was really excited when I heard BD was finally getting into the shoe business! I went down half a size in the men's (I wear a women's street shoe 8). Although the Momentums don't fit my foot like a glove, they are just snug enough in the toe box and allow me to feel confident on slab routes. They've been great for edging. So far, the synthetic knit has done a great job controlling odor. Great all-around, lightweight shoe for beginner to intermediate climbers!
