Good shoe, meh performance

Reviewed by NY climber from NY on Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Bought this shoe because of the price. And I definitely know now why they were so cheap. Before, I was using trashed La Sportiva's which had excellent rubber and just thought I needed new shoes, and any shoe would be better than those. So, I bought these- I immediately noticed that I slipped off holds much easier, and slab climbs were near impossible. edging sucked, and crack climbs hurt like a **** because the shoe is so thin. I would even go as far to say that these shoes directly caused a 4 month ankle injury with possible surgery. They just slip too [...] much! And yes, I was using them in the same temperature, humidity and environmental ranges as my previous shoes. All that being said, I'm giving it a few stars because they are VERY comfortable. Excellent for hanging out in all day alpine or multi-pitching, and great to have with the velcro feature.

If you want a shoe that's cheap and WON'T send your projects, but be great for beginners and guides hanging out on walls all day, this is the shoe.
