And maybe a chalkbag and some chalk will be useful too at some point.

My first pair of rock shoes were Scarpa helixes which were pretty good as a beginner shoe, I still have them and like to use them on easy trad routes, so I can recommend them. I think the La Sportiva Cliffs (it's a blue shoe) if they still make them was a similar type entry shoe. Actually I'm not really sure what kind of shoes they've got on offer nowadays at the shops, having accumulated enough pairs for myself to last a while :). Hmm laces vs velcro - laces can give you that slightly more custom fit and is less likely to come undone, velcro is much easier to take shoes on and off, especially if you're indoor climbing and you'll be taking your shoes on and off all the time between climbs.
