What kind of climbing are you doing? There is a big difference between rock climbing and mountaineering. The footwear used for the two are completely different. For rock climbing, boots designed for step kicking and crampons would be unnecessarily clumsy. For mountaineering, the thin, sticky soles of rock shoes would be dangerous on ice and would make one’s feet sore. I don’t think one can get a good pair of mountaineering boots for $200. Rock shoes may be different.
May I walk in beauty.
