Slab/Low Angle Multipitch Shoe Recommendation for Wide Feet?

by Psilocyben » Sat May 08, 2021 6:02 pm

Can anyone here with a wide asymmetric foot recommend a good shoe for lower angle climbs? (Being in Southern California, I mainly climb on granite with lots of little crystals and tiny edges, and a decent amount of friction smearing). I recently got Scarpa Instinct Laces for steeper stuff but am looking for a better shoe for lower angle stuff and longer climbs.

I recently tried Anasazi VCS and sadly the toe box is just too narrow for me. Really wanted them to work as they seemed perfect for my needs but my big toe gets stuffed under my middle toe and it makes edging very painful. I’m assuming the Anasazi laces will have the same problem. For reference, my Scarpa Vapor laces and Instinct Laces fit my feet really well, just hoping to find something a little more suited for my needs. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!
