I am assuming you are doing the regular route that is.

Good luck finding the right shoe!
For what it's worth, I climbed the Owen Spaulding route as a beginner in full-shank, deep-lugged leather waffle-stompers and made it just fine. I'm not sure which route you are attempting, but if it's the OS Route...shoot, you could climb it in soccer cleats.
