Fantastic comfortable shoeBy: Alex on 24 June 2011I'm a fan of comfortable shoes. These shoes marry comfort and function. I've used them for sport and trad (crack) climbing up to grade 24 and am really happy with how they perform. They do not hold their edge for too long but the soft rubber enables smedging (smear/edging) for the life of the shoe.
For the SlabsBy: Muzz on 13 June 2011My favourite shoe so far. If slabs and long climbs are on your tick list, these are well worth looking at. The Features and product description are spot on. After a year of steady use they have held up surprisingly well considering the light weight construction. Whether or not they will survive resoling I'm yet to see. Would definitely recommend them.
Comfortable shoeBy: Pat on 31 October 2010Would probably rate it 3.5/5. This is a great shoe for someone just getting into climbing as they're VERY comfortable. The shoe is very soft with synthetic lining and a padded tongue. Though because of the lining the shoe gets a bit slippery inside when my feet start to sweat up. Also this also doesn't help the stink filter out of the shoe. All in all a good starter shoe or indoor rock climbing shoe.
