    A fairly aggressive shoe when sized down. It is not particularly sensitive. The forefoot rubber is quite thick and rigid. But it performs quite well for sport routes. Feels like a mix between the testarrossa and anasazi lace. My street shoe is 12. I wear 41.5 in muiras (rather tight) and I went with 42 in these. They were initially quite painful but stretched well in a warm shower.

    Full disclaimer: I haven't tried them out on rock yet. The sole (hah, shoe pun) purpose of this "review" is a comment on sizing: I wear an 11 or 11.5 street shoe usually and a 12 (46) mountain boot. I purchased the size 10 (43) for the Scarpa instinct lace and, while they do still vacuum on when I slip into them, I could comfortably (that's a relative term regarding climbing shoes, mind you) have gone smaller for a more performance fit. Either way they'll work out for harder trad face climbing but I can expect I'd want them smaller for really technical sport climbing and bouldering, neither of which I do much of anyways. Hope that helps you purchase the right size.
