Video: How to Choose the Right Climbing Shoes

Getting started in rock climbing can feel bit overwhelming and challenging at times, especially when it comes to picking out the right gear. As usual however, REI is here to help with this informative video that helps beginning climbers decide which climbing shoes are right for them. There is a lot to take in here, although at the end of the day buying the right shoe isn’t as difficult and complicated as you might think. That said, having the right shoes can also make a huge difference on how well you climb and how much you enjoy the sport, particularly in the early going. The video above will help you sort through all of that and get you on your way to the crag with the proper footwear.
