Didn't suit me

Reviewed by Bruce from Reno on Wednesday, May 25, 2016
These are very well made shoes that look great but I eventually returned them.
Two issues: The toe area is quite tight in the height direction. I found that during long hikes using hiking socks my toes felt pinched and sore.
Also, there is very little cushioning in the sole. Now, that might be by design as an approach shoe where you want sensitivity to the rock, but it makes for a hard sole to hike in. And I need approach shoes that are good for several mile approaches. The foot bed (liner) is also worthless, but most shoes seem to come with cheap liners.
I've gone to La Sportiva Boulder X shoes.
