    So my shoes have got holes in them and I am in the market for a new pair. Anyone have any recommended type? I’d like something aggressive.

    do you want aggressive advice or an aggressive shoe?

    If you can manage to give aggressive advice about aggressive shoes, I’d applaud the effort.

    Scarpa Vapors are the best thing since sliced bread. I hear Rooney likes Instincts….

    I’ve just got me some Climb X Technicians from Rock + Run for £32, and they’re pretty awesome.

    It all depends on what you are looking for?

    Do you want a shoe you can use for Trad as well as inside or do you want an aggressive shoe to use for Sport, bouldering and indoor.

    If you are looking for a shoe to use on trad as well then I would go for the  5.10 Anasazi VCS. Best all round shoe I have had and class for trad.

    if you are on a budget then like hello kitty said, Climb X Technicians are good and cheap though you are sacrificing quality of rubber for price. Also climb x doesn’t have the best reputation with the whole patent stealing business and exploding bolt hangers.

    … I was not aware of that when I bought them…

    The rubber seems alright at the minute, though.
