It makes perfect sense - shoes and chalk have everything to do with style. Go and repeat some old classics in hiking boots like the first ascentionists and see how you go - their style of ascent is much more impressive than ours. And when chalk started being used didn't people see it as aid? It sure as hell helps me out.

Everyone has different standards dude. For you it's supplemental oxygen for others it's shoes and chalk. As long as you are honest and aren't hurting anyone (or the rock) what's the problem?
