Red Chili Spirit Velcro Impact Rock Shoe
Solid and performing
Initially I was quite sceptic about getting these shoes. Without the laces I didn't expect them to hold the foot well. But they perform better than expects. Very good hill support and nose grip.

Red chilli spirit
The shoe was comfy from the off. The only disappointment is that the inside edge seems to have degraded far too quickly.

Great all round climbing shoe
I Bought the exact same pair again due to performance, durability, comfort and good fitting. I climbed using my last pair for over one and a half years, indoors and outdoors. The only reason why I needed to change was due to the smell which us unavoidable, other than that reason they were in good condition.

Comfortable all rounder
I am a beginning rock climber and purchased this pair of shoes to replace a pair of Boreals that did not suit my foot shape. These shoes have been a revelation - having climbed in the 90s, where climbing shoes were extremely uncomfortable, I had not expected the level of comfort that more modern shoes have to offer. The shoes perform well too - at least to my newbie mind! I suspect it will be a long time yet before I can blame my shoes for a lack of success on the boulders! It was pointed out to me though, that the last is not the most aggressive - this might not be the shoes for edging on tiny holds. I look forward to proving the assistant wrong! Definitely recommended.

Very reliable climbing shoe, transitions indoor/outdoor well.
Always happy with the Red Chili shoe. It transitions from short indoor climbing to more demanding, longer use outdoor climbing as well. Shoe molds well to foot after first few uses and maintains its rigidity, but offers comfort. Will do for and beginner and intermediate climbers.

Great price, excellent fit, great climb
Having just started rock climbing I didn't want to have my feet broken to fit into those banana-fit shoes but I did want to be able to better use my toes to climb - these Red Chili's are perfect. The three velcro straps make sure the shoe wraps firmly and stays that way throughout lots of repeated climbs without cutting of my blood supply.
They're light, they 'stick' really well, and I'm not bursting to rip them off my feet when I'm on the ground.

These shoes are ideal for indoor and outdoor climbing, comfortable and a good fit
These shoes were bought for my son. He needed a new pair and after carefull consideration and looking at several climbing shoes, i chose these,
Red chili spirit, these seemed a perfect choice as for start they are velcro fastening and thats what my son likes. They are an all rounder shoe, perfect for a semi- experienced climber to a experienced climber.
They are also a good shoe for bouldering. The look like a good shoe that can be used for outdoor climbing too. This is the main reason i bought them because my son climbes indoor and out door and boulderes aswell. These are my sons second pair of climbing shoes, the first were a basic shoe but as he has become more experienced he has needed a better shoe and the red chili spirit climbing shoes meet all the requirements he needed for a slightly more advanced shoe. I would definetly recomend these.

A great piece of kit
These are surprisingly comfortable (as much as climbing shoes can be). The shoe provides great support in particular I like the way it fits snugly but comforably around the heal without rubbing.
I'm a beginner climber but can see these shoes lasting me a while. Highly recommend.
