I love going to REI for new shoes. The staff is always super helpful (usually fellow climbers) and the styles are pretty consistent so they may even have your current shoe in stock. I climb at The Rock Club, but I’ve gone to the Cliffs for shoes. The staff are ALL climbers so it’s another good option. When I climb up north at the Gunks, I usually stop into Rock and Snow — I think their shoe selection is the best anywhere. Btw, since you’re clearly a committed climber, you may want to have a few different types of shoes. I have neutral ones, moderate/aggressive ones, and shoes for outdoor climbing. Also, because it takes a bit of time to break in new shoes, if I notice a shoe wearing a bit, I buy another pair right away and start breaking them in so I can do a slow transition. Good luck with your shoe search!
