Answer RAZORZ's question:


REVIEWED BY:    2013-02-28

"These shoes are sweet. I wasn't too sure about the colors/design at first, but they are way cooler in person! These are a little narrower just like the Blades... I wear a 9.5 US Men's street shoe, and I got these in a 9.0 for bouldering mainly. I have a wide-ish forefoot and a basically nonexistent narrow heel, so it's hard to find climbing shoes. Scarpa's fit me really well in the forefoot but the heel has quite a bit of dead space. Five Ten and La Sportiva are both too narrow or have baggy heels. The heel in these are really, really nice though and the forefoot is just a bearable width, not super comfy like some Scarpa models though. My toes are curled to the max in these shoes! If I had maybe a 1/2 - 1 full size larger they would be extremely comfortable. They were definitely made with comfort in mind. I just got them a bit too small for that. Even extremely tight they are not that painful. I have other more generously sized climbing shoes that I will probably wear for longer routes or all day climbing. These are probably better suited for red pointing overhanging boulder problems or sport routes... Overall a great shoe. If I buy another pair in the future, I would probably go up half a size. If you have a very narrow foot, I would probably recommend a half or a full(if you're feeling brave) size down from your street shoe. If you are wider like me, then try street shoe or maybe half up for all day climbing."

  • Pros: Durable, Good Construction, Good Design, Good Grip, Long Lasting
