Reviewed by yositune from Alexandria, VA on Friday, May 2, 2014I've bought 4 pairs?? at this point and my son loves them too. I think other reviewers have commented that both the look, heal band and strap look like the sportiva solutions. I think I might still prefer solutions if price was not an option.. but I've never seen the solutions on STP. Still an amazingly comfortable shoe for as aggressive as it is. Others have commented on the heel being maybe not as well fitting as the solution but for my foot they fit great.
The hurricanes are also a nice flatter shoe and had several pairs of those as well. Love Edelrid product despite it not being as well known inthe US!
Reviewed by Graceful Hiker from Ohio on Tuesday, March 25, 2014I love these shoes! Very well made and has gone through many climbing trips by now. The sizing is tricky though. I wear a 9.5 US Mens, but needed to buy a 11.5 shoe. Be aware of that when you buy it!
Reviewed by blafrisch from Raleigh, NC on Friday, March 21, 2014After my recent purchase of these shoes I tried them out in the gym and at Red Rocks. These shoes rock, it's a shame that you cannot really find them anywhere else. The handled everything well that I tried: heel hooks, toeing in, edging, even a little bit of slab. Well, they aren't so great on slab but I didn't expect that they would be.
Sizing wise I wear a 10.5US street shoe and ended up getting a 10 in these shoes. I know I could have gone a little smaller and still not been oppressively tight but I wanted to be able to wear them for longer than a single climb. They hug my foot so closely that the hardest part of many climbs is popping my shoes off.
After my current two pairs wear out then I'd likely look for these again but I'm doubting I could find them. For now I'll enjoy them as well as the comments that they bring, "Edelrid makes shoes?"
Reviewed by Tim from Kentucky on Thursday, February 6, 2014Very pleased with this pair of climbing shoes, thinking about buying another pair before they are gone.
Reviewed by Handstand from Wisconsin on Monday, January 27, 2014They are aggressive and the rubber is sticky enough. The sizing is a bit weird. I wear 41.5 for la sportiva and 43 for Edelrid.
The one major complaint I have is that the strap from one of the shoes broke. There are metal fasteners that are designed to slide up and down a tufa-thing on the shoe. One of these metal fasteners slipped off the toe end of the tufa-thing and could not be securely reattached. I still use the shoes as slippers and they function fine except for really strong heel hooking.

“I was wondering if the sizing chart from which to choose from was scaled in a US or UK chart. Also, the product detail recommends that you buy a whole size larger. Likewise, is that a whole size larger than the average climbing shoe or street shoe?”
The sizes shown are UK if you slick on them the US equivalent is displayed. You would choose a size larger than your climbing shoe size.
