Verified Buyer Reviewed by Matt the Climber Hiker Skier from NYC on Wednesday, August 13, 2014This is my second pair of this shoe. Although it isn't as aggressive as other models, I can wear it all day without worry about discomfort. I particularly like it outside, where being comfortable is of the utmost concern. The leather also seems very odor resistant. I've had other shoes that I couldn't bury far enough in a closet, but these seem to take care of themselves.
I sized about half a size down after measuring carefully because the leather will stretch. It may be possible to size a whole size down, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a shoe that meets the goals that I described above.
Reviewed by Alex from Virginia on Tuesday, May 6, 2014I've been wearing these guys nonstop for better part of a year with both indoor and outdoor climbing and the rubber on them is fantastically sticky. I have wider feet and the first few times i had them on, i over tightened the bottom strap and they were a bit on the crushing sides but after the initial break-in period they fit like a glove. Highly recommend.. they're not as aggressive as other shoes but they make up for it by having amazing rubber and being super comfy.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Evan from Illinois on Monday, April 28, 2014I have used these about 5-6 times at the gym and they seem to be a nice shoe. The do not have a strong edge on them and they are not agressive. They are just a nice, easy climbing shoe.
Reviewed by Jane from Massachusetts on Tuesday, January 21, 2014I ordered these for my son who climbs at school when he gets the chance. They arrived quickly, fit him perfectly, and he say the are "great"
I was concerned about the sizing given the comments online, but I ordered what should be his size, and he said they fit fine. Climbing shoes are suppose to be tight!
He's happy, therefore I'm happy~
Reviewed by Verticalbound from Wisconsin on Saturday, January 18, 2014I'm a 50 year old climber who spent some earlier years guiding all over the US and Canada. Worn through many shoes in my time
and still puling on the occasional 12's but spend most of my time on 11's.
That said, I put these on right out of the box and put them on a bunch of various 10's and they were great. Worked well on 11's also but
are a little stiff and need some time to break in. I'm used to a thinner shoe than these however they were pretty good right out of the box.
I did notice even though lined they did stretch out a little bit and conformed to my foot pretty well.
Good quality materials, rubber is good and wears well. You could keep these on all day if you wanted. I bought 2 different sizes, half size up
was the shoe I put to the test right away and kept them on all day. Half size down will be better for the harder 11's and 12's.
You cant go wrong with these shoes. No they are not an aggressive profile but you don't need that if you've been climbing hard for a lot of years,
you foot is stronger than people just starting out.
I like them, I ordered 4 pairs!
