What to consider before buying the butora Endeavor climbing shoes

The type of your feet: The Endeavors are made for both wider or regular feet shapes. Make sure you know which style works for you. 

If you have narrow feet:  Choose one of these: Neat Grey (women’s) or Neat red or Neat orange, Lavender regular or Sierra gold regular. 

If you have wide feet: Go with the Crimson wide, Moss Wide 

If you don’t know if your feet are narrow or wide? Usually people with higher arches have more narrow feet and people with lower arches have wider feet.

Sizing: when choosing the right size for you, take a half size from your typical street shoe size for bouldering. Some people do have issues when sizing the Butora Endeavors so if you have a chance to try them on at a local shop or climbing gym that might help out. The Butora Endeavors should only stretch about one quarter size in use. 

What kind of climber are you? The Butora endeavors work great for beginners looking for a cheaper option for a climbing shoe.  If you are more experienced you might want to consider these for easier routes or for warm ups.
