SO ILL Runner Climbing Shoe

The So iLL Runner climbing shoe is an all-round climbing shoe inspired by the retro running shoe - in style only; modern day functionality is what give this blast-from-the-past its competitive edge.

The So iLL Runner Climbing Shoe design’s carefully crafted balance is made for versatility across all styles of climbing. A medium-stiff sole with a highly downturned toe allow for precision and power on technical or steep, overhanging boulder or sport climbs, while the fish-hook thin midsole enhances edging performance on more vertical, slabby routes. Downturned enough to tackle performance bouldering, but stiff enough for foot support on longer climbs. Style doesn’t have to mean sacrificing function.

PLEASE NOTE: The guys at So iLL suggest men order a half-size up from street shoe size for a tight and functional fit, and ladies order one size down for a tight, functional fit.

Flashy but good?

Hey,
so this is my first review.
Design: I think it is important to speak about the overall design of the shoe because it is extraordinary. To make it short, the colour is awesome :D and you will get recognized just by your shoes.
Sole and climbing performance: I took these shoes to bouldering first just to test them out and from the get-go it felt weird stepping on tiny holds because the sole is not only soft but also quite thick, which makes it "spongey" at the tip. Unlike the tip of the shoe the heel is quite stiff and great for hooks. BUT this was only my first impression!! I took the shoe for some leading yesterday and the more i climbed with it the more i got used to the sole. After some routes I still had to look at my feet for good placements but this "spongey" feeling was reduced and they felt good and solid. The rubber is very sticky making it a good sole overall.
Size: I bought these in 9 (43EU) and they fit tight for comparison i have both Scarpa Vapor V2 and 5.10 Anasazi Velcro in 8(42EU) with my normal shoe size being 8.5(42.5EU).

TL:DR; nice colour and flashy, sole feels weird in the beginning but sticks good, size should be like street wear.

Tight fit, comfortable when warm

Did what it said in the Kickstarter instructions for the shoes and ordered the same size as my street shoes.

Very snug, with no dead space. They haven't streched out at all, and it almost hurts a bit for the first few minutes of climbing, but they get more comfortable when worn a bit.

I haven't climbed outside with them yet, but indoors they're really great.
