Oxygym Climbing Shoe

Ever since your climbing gym ran a locals-only special, that's your life: you climb, climb, and then climb some more, ruing your mammal status and wishing you were an arachnid. Whether you're a sport climbing newbie or on a first-name basis with the crew at your gym, the La Sportiva Oxygym Climbing Shoe gives you all-day comfort and the confidence necessary to experience some highs off the ground.

Synthetic material tends to stretch less than leather, so the fit you feel from the first time is not too different from the fit you'll get after several weeks of wear. Minimal asymmetry and a neutral profile make it easy to wear this grippy shoe for hours on end whether you're working on slabby under-vert or slightly over-vert problems. The round toe accommodates a variety of surfaces, be it a top-rope line at the gym or rock outside. The patented hook-and-loop closure system gives you two points of adjustment for a highly personal fit as well as the ability for rapid outfit changes. Slip-lasted construction takes away a bit of the stiffness so your wait for the wall isn't a foot-wrenching experience.

FriXion RS rubber on the bottom is the stickiest sole La Sportiva offers. AirTex Silver lining manages foot moisture and minimizes shoe stink by creating an environment hostile to odor-causing bugs. The 1.8mm LaspoFlex midsole gives this shoe a thin shot of torsional rigidity while offering some cushion from below, and an anti-shock EVA heel insert means walking on flat land isn't total torture. Triple-layer WashTex fabric lets you throw this shoe in the machine when it starts to walk towards the car on its own.

Good Shoe, Poor Lacing System

This shoe works great as a beginner shoe outside or as a gym shoe. Honestly, the shoe would be a bargain for the price but the straps broke on mine after about 8 months. When the straps wear out before the rubber, that's a product flaw. I see this all the time now with the models using the thinner velcro straps.

Decent Shoe

I've had two pairs of these and both pairs start to delaminate on the heel side of the shoe within a few climbs. Pretty comfortable shoe with very little break in but not very breathable at all. Overall, a decent shoe for the money but definitely some downfalls to it.

Exactly what's advertised!

I bought these shoes as a gym warm up shoe as well as something durable for doing laps on an autobelay. I was looking for a shoe that was comfortable, durable, good rubber, but also something that didn't feel cheap since I knew I was going to be getting a "beginner" shoe. This certainly fits the bill. This shoe required barely any break in for me. I was immediately able to hop on my warmups and they felt great. The dual velcro also feels like it provides a much snugger fit on top. Great shoe!

Great first pair, however the seem to wear quickly

The Oxygyms are my first pair of climbing shoes. I have been climbing for about half a year and they are an amazing first pair of climbing shoes. My only issue is that I have noticed that only after two months of use the straps have started to tear.
