Designed to provide unparalleled comfort for all day cragging and gym sessions, the Momentum is a two-strap Velcro shoe built with a women’s specific last and 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.

Momentum Climbing Shoes - Women's is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent beginner/intermediate shoe I have been looking for my perfect intermediate all synthetic shoe and I'm glad I held out for Black Diamond's shoe. I bought these shoes 2 weeks ago and opted to buy my normal shoe size (9.5) despite them being quite tight in the store. I'm glad I did because 2 weeks of regular wear and they fit my foot perfectly. These shoes have upped my indoor climbing game with good precision and traction! They are an excellent quality for the price and I love the look of them. Thank you Black Diamond for making an all synthetic shoe for us vegan climbers out there!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to the market! Easy on and off and wearable for an all day climbing session. A little loose in the toe box but the heel fits great. I I did find that after a few routes my feet got pretty sweaty and felt like they were slipping in the heel. Overall the shoes are pretty comfy and a nice addition to the market for beginner/intermediate shoes. Worth checking out!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like these I was so excited to try a fresh pair of Black Diamond shoes, since I love their gear. Unfortunately, I had to send these back. I did love how light and breathable this shoe was, and they were very comfortable right out of the box. The lightweight mesh material is a game-changer for all-day wear. My intention was to use these as a gym shoe for warm ups and training, however I couldn't get the rubber to stick on, what seemed to be, any footholds smaller than jugs. Perhaps as a "beginner shoe" they're not meant to edge or smear? And I am of course open to the idea that perhaps my footwork is just poor, but regardless I had to switch back to my torn-through Verdons after slipping off a foothold for the 4th time. It was disappointing. I'd still love to try their other shoe models, however I just won't be using this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs SO small I was super excited to buy these shoes for months. I finally bought my shoe size - size 7 - way too small they basically cut off the circulation to my toes - bought the next size up - size 7.5 - also very small, my big toe was crushed. Finally I found a 8 in a department store which fits better I think. I have to send them both pairs back which will cost me basically the same amount as the shoe at this point. Just order up. They are absolutely beautiful shoes, I’m sad that things went so badly for me because I really do love them so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Climbing Shoe This is a good basic climbing shoe. I was satisfied with the rubber, it felt solid when I needed it. The fit is definitely neutral which is great for long term comfort for long sessions outside or in the gym. As far as size I followed the guide and got my street shoe size and it actually fit the length of my foot! The heel seems a little big and not very adaptable to my size heel. One improvement I'd have is that the strap towards the toes pulls inward and can interfere with edging on the inside of my foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rubber! These shoes are great for the beginner climbers or someone who wants a not so aggressive shoe. The upper mesh material is great for allowing the shoe to breathe. I didn't give it 5 stars because I did feel that they were very narrow and the Velcro closing system was a little off. I like my shoes to close flat onto my foot and these shoes closed but not flat. But that is me being extremely picky. That did not affect my performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginner/Gym Shoe These shoes are really durable and the rubber is great. I sized down a half size from my street shoe size for a more sensitive, performance fit. While there was a bit of a long break-in period (compared to my other climbing shoes), they fit my foot well now and I feel solid while climbing in them. While my go-to shoe for projecting outdoors is more aggressive, these are great for the gym.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I'm not sure how to even rate these shoes since I was told to order my normal shoe size, but I can't even get the climbing shoes on. They look like a comfortable gym shoe...
