About 10 months ago i badly injured my foot.
As its feeling a bit better now I am keen to start climbing again as i'm taking my daughter bouldering at the moment.

There is a weakness in my left foot which means 'proper' climbing shoes are out of the question.

Can anybody recommend a relatively stiff approach shoe with a decent soft rubber sole that would be suitable for a bit of light bouldering but also offer a bit of support for my dodgy foot?

Ta :D

I've a pair of Hagloffs shoes which are pretty good; I've done easy climbing with them. The Scarpa range looks good as well though.

I've found exactly what i'm after but i can't find a UK seller :?
The Evolv Maximus is exactly what i'm after.
Merrell would also be ideal but not spot on :roll:
