Definitely recommend these shoes for climbing. I bought these because the canvas climbing shoes because they are vegan. The amount of arch is perfect for me. I've climbed these indoors and outdoors. I will note that I first bought a size 8 (my standard shoe size) and they were much too tight. I swapped the 8's out for a 9 which are snug and perfect. Climb on!
This is my 3rd pair of climbing shoes (all of which have been 5.10). My first pair was great for starting - they were completely flat tie-ups (I don't remember the name. My second pair of shoes were the 5.10 Blackwings. I hated them - they were way to aggressive for my gym climbing and weekend trips to the Red River Gorge. When I tried on the 5.10 Coyotes, I fell in love IMMEDIATELY! They are the perfect shoe for me: they're comfortable and practical.
