Since my toes kept poking out from rock climbing shoes, it was time for me to get a new pair of shoe.
It’s a well known fact that rock climbing shoes are cheaper in Singapore than Malaysia. The two places that I know is the Nuts, Friends and Krabs of all Sports Equipment on the 4th floor of Peninsular Plaza.
Other than rock climbing shoes, they also have runners, harnesses and chalk bags. This place is manned by a fierce no-nonsense one eyed uncle.
Although he can only see with one eye, he could gauge my shoe size by just looking at my feet. I got myself a nice 5.10 shoe at a discounted rate!
The other shop is called Campus Corner at Capitol Building Singapore. It’s just next to Peninsular Plaza.
They have more than climbing gear. They also have a lot of camping equipments. You can check it out at their website at http://www.camperscorner.com.sg. You can get their Mad Rock shoes there!
[Note: As at October 2009, the Nuts, Friends and Krabs of all Sports Equipment is closed 🙁 ]
