Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Stick to your projects with the tenacity of an 8-legged bug. Tarantulace Shoes are more aggressive than a traditional beginner's shoe. They suit all around climbers on varied terrain and excel at gym climbing and single-pitch cragging. Laces offer a wide fit range of so they fit various and unusual foot shapes.

  • Unlined leather and synthetics are comfortable for all-day cragging and long hours in the gym
  • Quick pull lacing gives you a snug and precise fit
  • Lined tongue for moisture management
  • Slip-lasted construction
  • Asymmetric shape helps new climbers push grades fast
  • Long lasting sticky FriXion® RS rubber sticks to plastic and rock equally well
  • La Sportiva suggests downsizing 1-1.5 sizes (performance fit) or 0.5-1 sizes (comfort fit) from your street shoe size
