Verified Buyer Reviewed by Climbingbum from California on Monday, June 30, 2014I've been a climber for about 16 years so I think that I am pretty well versed in my climbing shoes. These are good shoes for all around use as they have zero camber so they are comfortable, and they are stiff enough to edge on smaller holds. That said, I purchased them for all day shoes for trad and for those days when you just don't want to jam your feet into the more technical shoes for bouldering. If you're looking to send some hard project, these are not your shoes, go with something more downturned. If you're looking for comfortable shoes that you don't have to wince in pain when putting on and you would like to keep on between climbs these are your shoes. If you're new to climbing, buy these in your street shoe size, they are synthetic and will not stretch. If you want them to be slightly more aggressive go down about 1/2 of a size, but do not try to size them any smaller; these are not aggressive shoes and if you try to get them any smaller you are just causing yourself unnecessary pain.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dejay04 from Arkansas on Wednesday, May 21, 2014For starters - I'm a fan.
These shoes offer a versatile approach to anything at the gym or crag. The only time I would not recommend these shoes is on an over hung route that is sustained over 45 degrees or a roof. That being said this is a great beginner, intermediate, or casual shoe. It is pointed enough to let you use your toes but forces you to be intentional with your placements. It is also a step below the aggressive shoes and can be worn for longer periods of time.
This shoe is very durable and is pretty stiff and has lasted me 6 months now with gym and crag wear. If you do not like stiff shoes then look elsewhere.
If you are working the top of the toe rubber you might wear through the shoe pretty quickly.
Closing statement: If you are looking for a cheaper shoe that will get the job done this is it. If you are looking to toe into nothing, precision edging, or a talon tip then bump your price range!
