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.

  • 4.3mm Proprietary molded rubber is built for durability and molded for optimal comfort, consistency and weight

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good beginner shoes I bought these about month ago and I really like them. For those who are ordering online, I'm a normal size 9-10 and I got a 10 and1/2, but a 10 would maybe have been a snuggier fit. The only thing I like a little less is the fact that they bury a tiny bit above the heel, but otherwise good shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Howdy They are so comfy! Just letting you all know, if you wear socks with climbing shoes, go up in size! I'm a 6.5 but went 7.5 in these. They fit perfectly and love the maroon-ish color. I have only been able to wear them a couple times but, If they suck I'll def make another review lol. But I cant complain as of right now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy! Haven't yet broken these in but so far they work really great! Only needed to go a half size up from my normal shoe size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe The shoes are exactly what I needed as an intermediate climber. The velcro keeps the shoes tight and the bottom is grippy. They stretch out quite a bit the first few wears, so don't be afraid if they are SUPER tight when you first get them. Color is very cute as well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I wear size 6 street shoe (sometimes 5.5) and I ended up getting size 5.5. These shoes are great if you have a longer, narrower foot. I don't, but I got them anyway. My pinky toes start to hurt after a little while and there is a little more space in the big toe than I'd like, but they are still the best beginner shoe I've tried. They are stickier and more flexible than other entry level shoes and I love them for endurance training days. I've had them for a few months now and just threw them in the washing machine the other day. They cleaned up great and dried quickly. Overall, great shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a comment on sizing I haven't had a chance to test out these shoes very much yet, but just wanted to add a note here on sizing. While you end up ordering most climbing shoes below your size, Black Diamond's shoes are fit a bit differently. I am a very consistent size 8, but hearing from a gear rep to order up, I initially went with a 8.5 and all my toes were crumpled in the shoe. I then tried a 9.5 and my heel was slipping out - finally have settled on a 9 and everything is fitting great! Heel stays in, toes are a bit squished but perfect for stretching them out over the next few weeks. I realize this review doesn't add a lot about the quality of the shoe, but since I had such trouble with sizing, I thought I'd add my findings!
