Quickly gaining a reputation as THE screamin’ deal of the century, the Reflex is a high-performance shoe that excels on all kinds of terrain. Loaded with performance features like Megabyte™ rubber soles, sticky rubber rands and a speed-lacing system, the Reflex is semi-stiff for edging support, but sensitive enough for steep sport routes. Equally at home on granite slabs or overhanging quartzite, the Reflex edges, smears and grabs with grace. Nicely enough, all of this comes at a price anyone can afford.

Serious shoe at an unbelievable price
Sticky wave rand—jam, scum and smear
Built on a high-volume last for ultimate comfort

Review 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: nikovich, 2005-04-27

Great edging, terrible sensitivity and poor smearing... these hurt something awful until they knocked my toenails off. now i can wear them at length but i still wish they were velcro or a slipper because when i want them off i want them OFF and the laces are a pain. A great gym shoe with bomber construction but i can't make it work for me outside.

I LOVE these shoes! The tipped toe is great for steep climbing, and the toe rand makes it an alright crack shoe also. The speed lacing is cool, too. I don't have to loosen an the re-pull the laces to get a snug fit, just one pull does the trick. I only bought mine one size smaller than my street shoe, and it works very well. Before tying them, Ijust pull up on the toungue and the toe pulls right onto my foot. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a comfortable shoe, used for mostly longer, multi-pitch routes, but a little bouldering her and there also.

I love my Reflexes, they are great for all types of climbing, and I have yet to find rock where they did not perform superbly. Excellent Value/Performance Ratio.

I've picked up two pairs of these for extremely low prices. They smear and edge wonderfully well and are comfortable once worn in. The only down side for me has been the first pair wore through fairly quickly but that's almost certainly due to poor foot work and consistent amount of climbing I've done with them.

This was my first pair of shoes. They were good for me until i got my Anasazi Velcros. After wearing my velcros for a couple months I couldn't even wear my old Reflexs because they weren't nearly as comfortable. My first and last pair of lace up climbing shoes.
