Scarpa Reflex V Climbing Shoe
The Reflex V is built for beginner climbers and people wanting a comfortable all-day shoe that you can still perform in. It has a soft, comfortable and breathable Synthetic upper that is knitted together and fits like a sock because it is so soft it moulds around your foot giving you a fantastic and comfortable fit. They have a flat a slightly asymmetrical which again keeps your feet comfortable without hindering performance. Scarpa has used their Scarpa Vision rubber which is durable but still very sticky so no matter if your standing on a slippery slopy volume at the gym or a tiny edge at your local crag the Reflex V will keep you on the wall. The Reflex V is just as suited to your local climbing wall as it is too long days multi-pitch climbing, a great all-round shoe for people looking for a comfortable fit.

I bought these as a nice stiff warm up pair for bouldering and for longer route climbing. But while climbing I usually keep them on quite a bit longer after warming up, they are a pretty good fitting pair and I can send quite hard problems in them. The only gripe I have is the heel, with a heel hook that rolls a little and requires some good effort the shoes tend to be not tight enough. I have a relative shallow heel though so your feet might vary.
In the end I am happy with a cheap, comfortable pair of shoes I can spend most of my session in. Only swapping for softer shoes when things get real funky.
For build quality they seem great, I've been climbing in them for a couple months and they are nicely broken in and have no faults.
