Reviewed by Tracy from Arizona on Monday, March 31, 2014I really liked these and wanted to keep them. I am a US women's 7.5 to 8. I sized up to one and a half sizes from a 7.5 to a 9 after the conversion from UK sizes. I found them to still be too tight, even for climbing shoes. I think I would have needed to go up to a 9.5, but unfortunately they didn't have it in this size. Bummer.
Reviewed by Gavin from Austin on Thursday, February 13, 2014These shoes are awesome, good rubber, somewhat aggressive but still comfortable enough I can wear them for a while.
Reviewed by Physics Ranger from Alexandria, VA on Friday, January 10, 2014I've had these shoes for about 2.5 months now. I wear a 9-9.5 US size street shoe and the UK 8.5 fit great (thanks to all the useful sizing reviews on this website). I've used them indoors bouldering and top roping (~4 times per week, so lots of use in only a couple of months). I've been climbing for ~6 months (only indoors so far) and wanted to step up to a slightly more aggressive shoe but wasn't ready for something like the Ravens. I think these shoes work quite well for that.
They break in rather quickly so I can wear them for long periods but tend to take them off between climbs anyway. The heel can feel a bit different, I usually step up and down a few times right after putting them on to make sure the heel is in properly. The toes stick to the holds very well and feels very secure. I love the way the heel feels when doing a heel hook, much more secure than previous shoes and much easier on the heels. The sliding rail system is convenient but I wouldn't recommend moving them too much or too frequently.
As alluded to above, read the reviews regarding sizing carefully. The shoes fit my feet well, someone with wide feet might find the design of the shoes unworkable, but too narrow and the heel may not suit you.
Reviewed by Stupid Sexy Flanders from Austin on Wednesday, November 27, 2013These shoes, while being one of the less aggressive shoes I own, are currently my favorites. Once broken in they are comfy alldayers with a great edge and sticky rubber (vibram). The last in them is even a tad stiff so I could see these shoes being great for slab work. The toe box is a bit bulky so thin cracks might be an issue but if you're into that stuff you probably already have a pair of TC Pros or something anyways. For the price these shoes make a great gym shoe and don't look like what everyone else is wearing.
Get a pair!
Reviewed by Epsilon from San Francisco on Wednesday, October 2, 2013Took a chance on ordering climbing shoes online since the deal was good, but I'll be returning them unused despite the price. The shoes seem well made, but were simply to big in the heel for me.
