Butora Narsha blue and orange climbing shoes

Butora Narsha review

The Butora Narsha climbing shoes are a great climbing shoe for edging and for overhanging boulder and sport routes. Butora Narsha will work best when climbing hard routes and when you need to rely on your shoes to stay on those micro holds. The shoes are aggressive and great for heel hooks.

Narsha shoes are a unisex climbing shoe and it is available in two different versions:

  • Blue Narrow/Tight fit
  • Narsha Orange Wide fit

What to consider before buying the butora Narsha climbing shoes

The type of your feet: The Narshas are available for both wider or narrower feet shapes. Make sure you have the right type for your feet. 

If you have narrow feet:  Choose the tight fit which is the blue colored shoe.

If you have wide feet: Go with the Orange shoe that is wider. 

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.  The Butora Narsha shoes should only stretch about one quarter size after some use. 

What kind of climber are you? The Butora Narshas work great for sport climbers  and boulderers who climb overhanging routes with small holds and edges.
