Good gym shoes
Reviewed by Larissa from Montana on Monday, March 27, 2017
Haven't gotten a chance to try these on real rock yet but very happy with their performance at the gym. I usually wear an 8.5M or 9.5-10 W and got the 41.5 because it was the only size they had. It is a TIGHT fit; I do have a wide toebox, but I ordered Scarpas because they're supposed to accommodate that. My toes have gotten a little bloody once or twice, it was better after I showered in them a few times and stuffed them to dry. They're getting a little more bearable as they continue to break in, and I think it's them stretching a bit more rather than my feet losing all feeling. The rubber is good, the stitching is solid, and you can't beat laceups for adjustability and performance in my opinion. The heel rubs also, but a little paper tape fixes that real quick. I'm happy with these and they were a great deal for $45 here on STP, but I caved and ordered some Sportivas in a 42 for days when I'm happy to sacrifice high performance for intact toenails.
