Montrail Method 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: walsh12, 2008-06-03

Was looking for a good slipper or velcro as a second shoe. I ordered these in 8.5 41.5 which I usually wear and after baking these they fit great. A little painful at first and I have also realized that my left foot is slightly larger then my right. To compensate I wear a thin sock in my right shoe. The first time they hit the rock wow, it was like opening up new footholds before that seemed impossible.

These are my 2nd pair of shoes and think they are great. It took a couple of climbs to mould them to my feet but they now fit my perfectly. I really enjoy climbing in them, they give me alot of confeidence. One draw back is that after 6months (climbing twice a week indoors and some outdoors) they have a small holes wearing in the front. I think that is due to the rubber being very soft and flexable.

These are my second pair of climbing shoes. I did not bake mine, but I wore it climbing a lot to break them in. Initially, it was very tight and flatly uncomfortable. After about six or eight days, though, the shoes felt like an extension of my feet. I found that I could stick a lot more complex of footholds with the shoes, and that after a while, the camber didn't really even bother me. I think these shoes are ideal for a beginner in bouldering who seeks to go a little bit further. The stretchy stuff on the side bothers me a bit, though; I'm afraid of it becoming too stretched out, and having the shoe fit me too loose.

I purchased the Methods as a bouldering shoe about a month ago. The shoes felt a little tight in the store and I was told that they would stretch a bit. After about a month of usage here is my review. I initially looked at the Methods because of the price, which was reasonable ($70). The sizing for Montrail shoes are about a size larger than Sportiva, which I normally wear. Montrail is using their new Gryptonite HT rubber on the shoes which is a huge improvement over the old Gryptonite rubber. After using the shoes for about two weeks I noticed that the right shoe seemed to stretch a bit and it looked like it lost some of its camber. I thought this was normal but the left shoe has yet to stretch. I tried to contact Montrail, through email, to ask them about this and have not received a response back. I just had the shoes out at the New and they preformed well. But when I was setting up a rappel the shoes got really hot, the black rubber on the top of the shoe is a bad idea in direct sunlight.
