Climbing shoes take a lot of abuse and they stand between you and the ground that you walk on. It’s important to clean your climbing shoes regularly to keep them maintained and in their best possible conditions.
Climbing shoes are exposed to dirt, grime and environmental toxins. Sweat collects on the inside and it’s easy for fungus to develop in them. This decreases the amount of use you’ll get from them and when they weaken, they could fail you at a bad time that could put you in danger.
