As far as comfortable and durable climbing shoes go, the La Sportiva Tarantula has quickly become a favourite for beginners and climbing veterans alike. Packed with features that assure its competence on small edges, and also provide comfort for long gym sessions or epic multi-pitch all-dayers, the La Sportiva Tarantula is a well-rounded all-rounder that lives up to its popularity and reputation.
Its stiff midsole gives all-day comfort as well as support to a beginner foot when taking their first verticle steps, whilst the Tarantula's Frixion RS 4mm rubber strikes a great balance between durability and friction. With a slip-lasted suede leather upper, and velcro straps, the Tarantula has been consciously designed to provide a comfortable and bespoke fit.
When buying a beginner shoe, why not look at something that can last and hold its weight throughout your climbing journey? The La Sportiva Tarantula will give you confidence in your early climbing steps whilst becoming a trusted ally as your climbing horizons broaden.
