New Shoes / 新しい靴


My second ever pair of climbing shoes which I bought after I made proud toe holes on my first “beginner” shoes reached the unrepairable state (which I sort of regret not getting them resoled before it was too late). I bought a new pair of the exact model but a half size down (from EU40 1/2 to EU40). I’ve worn them couple times in the gym and two times outside. So far so good.

I have super wide feet with bunions that I inherited from my family. It’s very hard for me to find a pair of shoes (not only climbing) that not only fit comfortably but also have enough space for my feet plus bunions to just get in. This pair of Vapor V Women’s by Scarpa really allows me to continue climbing without crying each time I put shoes on.

I’m still deciding how my blog should be, but here it is, my first blog post.

クライミングを数年前に始めた時にとりあえず店員さんにお勧めされるがままに買った初心者靴の後に「本気の2足目」として買ったシューズも、気づいたらつま先に穴があいてしまいました。本当ならゴムの張替えをしてもらって履き続けたかったのですが、修復不可能な状態になってしまったので、全く同じモデルのものを0.5サイズ(ヨーロッパサイズで40 1/2から40に)小さくして購入しました。既にジムで数回、外で二回ほど履きましたが、今の所良い感じです。

私の家系は代々外反母趾もちのため、普通の靴でも足に合うものを見つけるのに苦労します。このスカルパ社のVepor V (Women’s) のお陰で、今のところ外反母趾の苦痛を忘れてクライミングを楽しめています。
