To make your climbing shoes last longer, here are some tips based on my experience:

  1. Get the Right Fit: Make sure your climbing shoes fit well. Snug, but not painfully tight. This helps prevent unnecessary stretching and maintains the shoe's shape.
  2. Rotate Your Shoes: If you have multiple pairs, rotate them during your climbing sessions. This allows the shoes to rest and recover between uses, reducing wear and tear.
  3. Keep Them Clean: Regularly clean your climbing shoes to remove dirt and sweat. Use a soft brush and mild soap or climbing shoe cleaner. Avoid harsh chemicals or soaking. Air dry them thoroughly afterward.
  4. Minimize Moisture: Try to avoid climbing in wet conditions and remove your shoes promptly after climbing. Excessive moisture can degrade the materials and cause unpleasant odors.
  5. Store Them Properly: Store your climbing shoes in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Don't squash or fold them tightly, as it can affect their shape. Letting them breathe helps prevent odor buildup.
  6. Patch Up and Resole: Small damages can be repaired using shoe repair kits or by taking them to a professional. When the rubber sole wears out, resoling can extend the shoe's life.
