wierd fit

Reviewed by Ken Climber from Utah on Wednesday, May 3, 2017
I got the Nexxo hoping that it would be similar to the shaman but in a slipper version. Unfortunately the Nexxo is a very different shape. The shaman fits my feet better than pretty much any climbing shoe i have used (and I've used a lot of different shoes over the years), but the Nexxo has a baggier heal (more dead space for less secure heal hooks), and super pointy toes making it so that your toes are crammed together sideways and extremely uncomfortable. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, it's like the knuckle box is in the wrong place on these shoes. The knuckle box is there to provide a space for your toe knuckles to curl up into, but I have to tape up my ring toes because there isn't room for them in the knuckle box and they tear the skin off my knuckles very quickly. I was also expecting them to be a bit of a softer shoe than the shaman since they are a slipper, but they are at least as stiff as the shaman's if not more so. If these shoes fit your feet and you are looking for a stiff, agressive shoe, then these are probably a great shoe. Just don't think that they will fit in any way like the shaman's (even though they are both part of the Sharma signature series).
