Ocun Oxi LU
The Ocun Oxi LU is a downturned profile, stiff soled lace-up shoe for maximum versatility across all climbing disciplines.
The Ocun Oxi LU is designed for maximum flexibility across rock, multipitch, sport, and boulder climbs. Firstly, there are two ways of setting up the lacing: one for training - easy to slip on and off - and the other for longer sport/multipitch climbs - full lace up for maximum foot security - great for the climber who wants the best of both closure systems. As for the shoe’s design, the Oxi uses a curved profile and a downturned toe for hooking onto small holds on steeper climbs, but has a stiff midsole for optimum stability whilst edging and minimum foot fatigue on longer climbs. This shoe also has excellent durability thanks to its highly rubberised toe-box and slingshot, making it perfect for the climber who wants a hard-wearing performance shoe that can still be worn all day on the crag.

I just received the shoes (thanks EpicTVshop for being so fast btw, it arrived in half the time it was supposed to) and they fit perfectly to my feet. I'm eur43 in normal shoes and the 43Ocun is apparently perfect for me. It's tight but it fits perfectly as I want it. Not too tight not loose at all. Even without laces you won't move my shoes, I could litteraly climb like that without any trouble. I just guess the shoe would last way shorter in time.
I probably could have fit the 42.1/2 but that would have been a little more painful and unless you're expecting to climb with everything you got for 5mn it's useless.
So in resume, take your shoe size and you'll have a tight not that painful (it's still climbing shoes, what did you expect ?!) perfect shoe for a demanding route / boulder.
I'll probably make another comment after a few weeks.
I have a pair of ocun Jet QC shoes in size UK 9 had to go up Half a size for the oxi LU probably would of been fine with my street shoe size UK 10. The tighter fit is Still great but takes a bit of getting used too. The rubber is sticky and sits well on small edges. I really rate this shoe and would recommend it and any Ocun shoe. I think their rubber is amazing. Get a pair and try for yourself and enjoy
size chart doesn't match you have to put +- 10mm extra
i have been using these for the past 10 months, mostly bouldering and lead climbing inside. I found the fit of the shoe to be perfect for my foot; i have quite narrow feet but the laces mean they are very adjustable to fit any foot size.
The downturn lasted well in the shoe and even after near daily use for 10 months they still remain stiff enough.
The heal is also one of the best i have come across, it is well moulded and feels like its being sucked onto your foot. The toe patch is also a great bonus allowing for hard toe hook moves.
The rubber is fantastic and sticks excellently on plastic, my only complaint would be that when i wore them outside they felt a little more slippy than expected when climbing on limestone, on more textured rock the felt fine.
Overall, i would highly recommend these shoes as a perfect indoor bouldering shoe. They feel high performance and deliver when you need them to, For a very reasonable price too!
