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. 

  • 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

Momentum Climbing Shoes - Men's is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect general climbing shoe. My wide feet cannot seem to fit into any climbing shoe. This is my second pair of these shoes as I stepped up a size looking for comfort. I think I could go up 3 sizes and it would still be too narrow. But these things grip great, have flexibility, and have taken a beating on lots of rock. I'd suggest these to any climber or boulderer as a one shoe fix for your climbing bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small Just be aware that if you have wide feet or greek style feet that you will most likely need to order two sizes larger than street size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a strange problem I am very satisfied with these shoes. They are very comfortable and strong. I bought them as warm-up shoes but I also use them on medium difficulty routes because the performances are excellent. Only recently I find the problem in the photo. It looks very strange to me because the rest is new. I have to solve this problem asap because I need this shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too small I bought these shoes online but they were way too small. I am originally size 11 in regular shoes but the 11.5 hurt my feet. I feel like I might even have to go with size 13. But the quality of the shoes seems okay overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them I'm a beginner climbing. Only took 1 time for them to break in and feel comfortable on my foot. I wear a 10 1/2 normal shoe but had to get an 11 1\2 in these shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was not expecting much from these. I've been climbing with these almost 3 months now, My street shoe is a 9 with thin socks I bought these in 9.5 and I can wear them for 30 minutes or so before bad foot pain, so they are very comfortable. I have a slightly wide foot and have only found boreal shoes comfortable until these. I bought these just to trash around in the gym and on easy routes to preserve my expensive shoes for the hard routes. However in the gym they are fine up to my max grade and I used them in Laos climbing in the 5.11's without a second thought and they have performed great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe Super comfortable and super grippy. I recommend for slap or days when your burning routes and don’t want to take your shoes off.
