Oxygym Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Women's Oxygym Climbing Shoe features a female-specific fit that makes this shoe narrower with a lower overall volume compared to men's shoes. Whether you're a novice or a certifiable gym rat, this shoe gives you all-day comfort and the confidence necessary to stretch like your arachnid idol.

Crafted from synthetic WashTex fabric, this shoe shouldn't stretch too much, even after you spend two straight weeks working out a tough top-rope route indoors. Minimal asymmetry and a neutral profile make it easy to wear this sticky shoe for hours on end while you work slabby under-vert problems or slightly over-vert routes. The round toe takes to a variety of surfaces, and braving an actual outdoor rock for a wee bit of cragging doesn't require a separate shoe. The patented hook-and-loop closure system gives you two points of adjustment for a highly personal fit. Slip-lasted construction takes away a bit of stiffness so your wait for the wall isn't an agonizing experience.

FriXion RS rubber on the bottom is the stickiest sole La Sportiva makes. AirTex Silver lining manages foot moisture and minimizes stink by creating a hostile environment towards odor-causing bugs. The 1.8mm LaspoFlex midsole gives this shoe a thin shot of torsional rigidity while protecting your footsteps from the ground below. An anti-shock EVA heel insert means you can actually walk more than two steps in this shoe without falling on the ground in paw pain. WashTex fabric lets you throw this shoe in the washing machine when it starts to move up the wall on its own.

  • Comfortable climbing shoe made for multi-pitches and gyms
  • Flat last and low asymmetry optimizes all-day comfort
  • Washable, durable WashTex upper with breathable AirTex lining
  • LaspoFlex midsole with EVA heel for shock absorption
  • Frixion rubber sole offers traction on rock and plastic


  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I ordered these shoes for a more casual gym session shoe. The rubber is low grip and poorly adhered. You can tell by looking at them that the seams in the rubber will separate easily. They also run VERY small. All climbing shoes run snug, i typically order a size down from my street size. I ordered my street size for these because i heard how small they run and they were still way too small. My toes were completely curled while in a natural position no way to grip from there. Not constructed well.

Good Beginner

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I am just starting to climb and needed a pair of shoes. These seemed like a good choice, but they were a little big on me and I found a different pair I liked more. They are cute and look like great beginner shoes if you can get the sizing right!

Great for young kids and beginners.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My ten year old sister just got into climbing and I wanted to get her a shoe that was comfortable, easy to put on, and not feel so aggressive. She climbs sport at the gym and I think these are a perfect fit for her.

Not impressed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

They fell apart on second use. The heel of one shoe has started to “delaminate.” This was after 1 outdoor session, and then I noticed the defect at the gym.

Perfect Shoe for Beginners

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this shoe for my wife and she is super happy with how they perform. She struggled pretty bad with bad arch support with her old shoes and would have her feet cramping mid climb. These shoes have excellent arch support and her foot cramps have completely disappeared. Overall quality shoe.

good for casual/beginner climbing

    This was my first climbing shoe I bought about 1.5 years ago. I climb in the gym 2x/week, bought these for $70, I wear an 8 in street shoe and bought these in a 39. Sizing has been perfect - tight at first (maybe a little too tight), but have loosened to be perfect (especially if I wear socks). But they could be narrower, as I really have to yank the velcro straps all the way at the tightest. The rubber heel of one, right where I pull the shoe off, of my foot, starting to come loose, but I think it could fix it by superglue and it'd be fine.
    So not worn quite yet and still holding up, but I wish I would they were narrower, and that they were put together a lil better, but not a bad buy at all!

    Girlfriend loves them

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Recently picked up my girlfriends second pair of these. They lasted a solid year and half of very frequent climbing. Would have last longer if she didn't drag her feet along the wall, now we're working on footwork. But she says they are super comfy and they perform well. Work great for her in the gym as well as sport climbing outside. She sized up a half size from her shoe size and picked up a 38.5.

    Easy to take on and off

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have pretty much these same shoes with laces. I bought these for gym climbing so I could take my shoes on and off more easily. They are not the most durable shoe but they are good for the price you pay. I recommend them.

    Fell apart fast

      My mom bought these for me for my birthday, and I started climbing in early December. I wore these shoes maybe 10-12 times and a chunk of rubber started peeling off the toe. I know I'm a beginner climber, but thats pretty fast for a shoe to fall apart especially when you pay $100 for them. I took them to the Backcountry store and they refused to warranty them because it was normal wear and tear. I liked the shoes, but my advice to new climbers - buy cheaper shoes or shoes with a thicker toe box.

      Great Shoes

        Got these as a gift and she loved em. used them a number of times and are comfortable enough easy to get on and off but still great on the wall.

        Not true to size

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: 37

        My shoe size is 36, but ordered 37 and it is still small. I am going to exchange it for a 38.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        It is an ok shoe. Meant for beginners. I got it and it is not the best for smearing, toe/heel hooks, and small foot holds. The smell part of the shoe is not true and the velcro has a limit space. My foot is narrower so the velcro barley says on. You will get holes in the toes very fast.

        Great shoes!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        Bought these for my Girlfriend and she loves them! She just started climbing so we have only tested them out in the gym and she noticed the improved grip and feel, compared to the rental shoes, right away. I got her a half size smaller than her street shoe size and they fit perfect. I climb in La Sportivas as well and am really pleased with the brand overall

        First climbing shoes

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 40.5

        After reading shoe reviews, talking to friends who climb and trying on a handful of shoes I landed on these puppies. I ordered them a size and a half smaller than normal (according to their chart) and couldn't be happier. I'm really happy with the fit, colors, and ability to take these off between routes at the gym.
        Pros: good fit, pretty colors, easy to take off, price
        Cons: synthetic material traps sweat

        Amazing Beginner-Inter Shoe *note sizing

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I love my new Oxygym's! They fit my feet comfortably and I have difficult feet to fit: very narrow and high arches but a wide toe box. Other climbing shoes that were my size made my toes cross one on top of the other- obviously painful and ill-fitting for me. I've already worn these multiple times since their recent delivery and they're fantastic- great grip, form, lightweight, and comfortable. My friend ordered a pair, too, and also has been loving them. *Only thing, the sizing chart on here is incorrect. I wear an 8.5 and 41 are the correct 8.5 size for women. My friend, who is an 8, wears the 40.5. Every place I've climbed, that uses the LaSportiva women's, the sizes I just wrote correlate with what they have listed. Inside these shoes, they also have a tag that says 41 and 8.5 for the sizing. I'd look to the men's sizing on the chart listed for your correct size in the women's shoe until it is fixed. The shoe is worth it. ")

        Great review, Margaret!

        Comfortable but Slippery

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        I bought these shoes for my girlfriend who mostly climbs in the gym. She says they fit really well but the soles are really slick and slip off of holds easily.

        Great Looking Shoe, Wrong Size...

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size

        I just received this shoe and couldn't be happier with the way they looked! I ordered the 41.5's, given that I normally wear 10 to 10.5 in running shoes and thought I would need to size down. This idea came from being able to wear rental Red Chili Session VCR's in a size 9.5 at the gym (I'm a beginner climber by the way). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to size these correctly and my toes were absolutely crunched even though I could get them on, so I had to return them. Despite this, I just purchased these bad boys in a larger size, as the colors are amazing and they felt good on (Ordered size 42). Let's hope when I use them at the gym that they perform as good as they look!

        Great Looking Shoe, Wrong Size...

        Awesome shoes for beginners

        • Fit: Runs small

        These are perfect for an entry level, since they are not very aggressive you can wear them without much pain.

        Great shoes!

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size

        I bought these shoes for my sister and she had this to say about them - "I LOVE these climbing shoes!!! They fit amazing and very comfortable. I wear a size 5.5-6. And I got 36.5. I never had a pair of climbing shoes that are so great. Two thumps up! "

        Just right

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        The Oxygym is a great shoe for an intermediate climber. Perfect for someone who doesn't want something to aggressive but also is not sloppy. They fit true to size. I know it says that they are a gym shoe however I have climbed outside multiple times and am absolutely happy with them.
