    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated5out of5byfromGood shoe for the money!Pretty comfortable, perfect for beginning. There are shoes out there that would be more performant, but you would also expect to pay $50 more for them. They stretch a little so get them a bit snug.

    Rated5out of5byfromAwesome price for the qualityI am a beginner and these shoes give me extra confidence. Everywhere I stepped I felt like I my shoes were one with the rocks. I can't wait to be able to climb Bigger and more difficult obstacles and I would highly recommend these to anyone. I also like the lacing instead of Velcro. It feels like my foot is one with the shoe. I have been climbing a couple of times and I have had my expectations exceeded by these shoes. Greg was very helpful in the store and gave us all the information we needed to get the right gear and shoes.

    Rated4out of5byfromComfertable ShoesI got these shoes for indoor climbing and for the most part I like them. They're super comfortable and look good. The problem I would say I have with them is the fabric on the heel is starting to fray. Looking at other shoes, the rubber covers the heel completely, compared to these shoes where the leather is exposed on the heel. Overall I like the shoes, and hopefully when it's time to re-soul them I'll be able to get the heels covered.

    Rated5out of5byfromperfect starting pair of climbing shoeseasy to adjust and take on and off. not that you're looking for style necessarily but the color and style are easy on the eyes.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat Shoe!This shoe has been an excellent first pair for me. I am very rough on my gear, and these shoes have kept up beautifully. They are a great combination of comfort and performance. I have wider feet and the laces give me the option to adjust the width in different areas of my foot. Worth every penny!

    Rated4out of5byfromMy first climbing shoesThis is a great pair of shoes for my first! I do have to wear a band aid on my Achilles do to the rubbing that happens, but, that could just be due to breaking them in. They do appear to have too much fabric near the ankle while standing, but, it evens out up on the wall.

    Rated4out of5byfromComfortable shoe that will loosen upAs a beginner I've discovered how hard it is to find the right pair of climbing shoes. I've got fairly wide feet and I found these to be the most comfortable fit. After about 5 climbs I did notice they loosened quite a bit. Other shoes I tried were around 11 to 11.5. I got these in a 10.5+ and I'm already thinking I should have got them in the 10.5. Other than that I've found this shoe to be pretty solid and most of my problems at this stage are technique related and not gear related!
