Good climbing shoe

As a beginner I needed a climbing shoe, size 13, limited choice and availability but found the Tarantula. Comfy to wear and climb in. Used on the climbing wall and bouldering. Would recommend

Great shoe, great service

Bought the shoes as Christmas present for my 26 year old son. He’s pleased with them. First shoe he’s owned, previously hired at climbing centre. He’s getting plenty of use out of them. Great service from Rock 43, Run.

Incredible customer service for this. Just missed out on the free delivery, emailed the team and they let me combine two orders to get the free delivery. Dealt with quickly and very helpful. The shoes are good but they were slightly damaged on the ball of the foot.

Great product, fair price and efficient logistics

Happy with the product, does the job for intermediate indoor level. I haven't tested it outdoor yet. Price was slightly lower than alternative online retailers and logistics is quite efficient. Got an issue with delivery address but it was remarkably handled and still got there the day after.
