Additional information

For beginner climbers, we recommend choosing a shoe the same size as your normal size. For intermediate climbers, we recommend choosing a shoe 1 to 2 sizes smaller than your normal size. For advanced climbers, we recommend choosing a shoe 2 to 3 sizes smaller than your normal size. Choose tight shoe for optimum precision.
Slight asymmetry, offset towards the big toe: this shape gives you great grip on small holds at the expense of some comfort (especially for those with a flame foot shape) Shape suited to technical climbing.
Midsole and outsole: XS GRIP Vibram® rubber, excellent grip and resistance to wear.
breathable lorica® synthetic leather (flexible and precise) in forefoot areas, leather upper. Fastens with two hook-and-loop strips.

    Vertika Shoes

    I always used La Sportiva Miura VS, but I didn't want to spend so much money for a pair of shoes to use it in the climbing gym. I discovered a really really good shoe so similar to the Miura VS. The Vertika are really confortable, precise and with a really good price. Can't wait to try it outdoor.

    Worst Climbing Shoes Ever

    The title says it all. I don't think the designers ever tried these shoes for climbing. It has been 3 months, and it is going to bin.

    Brand response :

    Hello Balkose Ayse,

    I am sorry to hear that the Vertika Climbing Shoes were not up to the standard that your required. Would you be able to send me more details as to why you are unhappy withe the Vertika climbing shoes so that I can pass this on to the designers.

    Many thanks and once again apologies for the Vertika's not meeting your expectations.

    way too small, complicated return process....

    im size 10, got 9.5, don't fit and started an "exchange". Given the only option to send the 9.5 by post, which you have to pay for as they dont supply a returns sticker. It should be a simple case of dropping the shoes off at my local decatholon store. Called up my local decatholon store to find this out btw as I never got a email back from 2-3 days ago. I think I have also been charged for the new shoes that were a planned echange.

    Brand response :

    Hello Shane,

    I am sorry to hear that our returns process did not work efficiently for you.

    Any product you would like to return from online can be done in-store as well; you just need to bring the item and the email your received as your receipt and they can exchange, grant a gift card or refund for you.

    I have passed on your feedback to the Customer Services Team.

    Once again I am sorry for your inconvenience.
