I have been happy with La Sportiva Vipers for Gym/bouldering. I got them for cheap online (60 bucks) but would recommend the katanas if you are going to buy retail... Those are the next pair of shoes I will buy.

I said it once. Say'n it again.
Solutions or Miura VS by La Sportiva for bouldering and hard sport.
P3 that they offer also get you through multiple resoles with out losing down turned toes.
Go get em...

I love the new Sharma shoes - Evolv Pontas. No downturn, but super powerful. I just tried the Evolv Chaos and they were pretty amazing as well...more of a slight downturn that excelled on the super steep. The Pontas are incredible at both delicate vertical moves and overhanging. Sticks on a dime edge very well. It also doesn't jack my toes up like most downturn shoes do. You can wear them for a full sport pitch and not be in pain at the top.

Miura VS are friggin sweet. They fit so good it makes me want to cry. I have also "heard" great things about the Testarosas and Solutions. I "used to" climb in 5.10 shoes but they don't stand a chance against the Miura VS.

I have climbed a LOT with the LaSport Testes and they are amazing! A perfect shoe for hard sport and bouldering. That being said, if you a bouldering a lot, lacing up might be a pain if you are getting on and off and constantly taking you shoes off. If that is not a problem, the Scarpa Magos are also worth looking at. I have climbed in these for over four months now and just love them.

I have some friends that just rave about the new Jet 7s bu 5.10, a nice agressive slipper that heels well and has great rubber. Check out these too.

Check out the Boreal Fire's. The shoe is awesome. Some of the best climbers have done the hardest problems with these. You'll never look at an adge the sam. I've worn the hell out of mine and they look 25 years old but still climb like the day I got 'em.

I'm selling my late father's (Richard Hechtel) Fires - around size 12. I'm trying to figure out his precise shoe size.

The Solutions and the Teams are both awesome. The new Team VXIs look absolutely wicked.

like any other shoe, the ones that fit your feet? Solutions may work for alot of people but if you have a wider forefoot, not so much IME. Scarpa feroce or boostic would be my choices in those cases, or vapor v.

Pretty surprised no one has mentioned the dragons or the shamans. Two of the best bouldering shoes ever.
