need shoes in incheon

i'm getting into climbing, so i'm starting from the bottom! (no pun intended)

anywhos, i need shoes--any ideas of where to go?

i visited a bouldering gym where i'll probably set up residence, but the shoes they have for sale are 76,000. also, the pair i tried on made my toes curl. i know shoes are supposed to be overly-snug/tight, but isn't that a little much?

any advice/help would be greatly appreciated!! (including brands and whatnot--after doing some online research, i'm a bit overwhelmed!)

Go to a climbing store and start trying shoes on. Get ones that are a bit tight, but are still comfortable.

There are some climbing stores around Jongno3ga, exit 5 walk a couple blocks in and you'll see a world of climbing/mountain stores. You can shop around, some have different prices for the same shoe.
