Rental Shoes for
Over the last few years, Butora’s team has been traveling around the country asking climbing gym owners what they wanted. Over and over, we heard, “We want a comfortable, high-performance rental shoe, that lasts a long time.”
Many of our competitors resort to using lower cost and lower quality rubber on their rental shoes, and while this can provide increased durability, it greatly decreases stickiness, performance, and comfort (what new climbers care about most).
At Butora, we think it’s critical that visitors to your gym become long-term members, and a great way to increase the likeliness of membership, is by providing a stellar experience.
One of the first things a new climber experiences in a climbing gym is being handed a pair of rental shoes. We feel strongly that the performance and comfort of those shoes are critical to the first-time climber’s experience.
