Great price - just be ready for some blisters as yI tried these shoes several times cos I really wanted a pair of slippers to train in and when these went on Sale ($125 at the time of writing, down from $209) and I found myself with a balance of gift cards I figured why not? I have wide feet so I had to size up a size and a half to find a really snug, but not overly uncomfortable fit with these. Main reason is while the fabric is quite soft and breathable - the rubber around the toes is extremely hard and I found out one of my toes sticks out a tiny amount (I literally didn't know it did until I started climbing in these shoes) and it rubbed like crazy. I feel like once worn in and once the rubber has had time to soften and mold to my feet they will be very comfortable - but do be aware that if you are sizing down for a really tight fit that your feet will suffer in these, maybe more so than other similar shoes. On a positive note, these shoes have killer power through the toes and I felt really confident with edging and more precision moves. The heel has a really interesting texture and was great for hooking, if maybe not the most sensitive heel but I don't mind a thick heel patch. Toe patch is also amazing and feels really solid toe hooking on some overhang style climbs. TL:DR Size these carefully, if you've got wide feet like me then go up a size or more - but they're a great performance shoe for a pretty hard to refuse price right now.
situationalI found the toe part to be super uncomfortable. The ribbed rubber for the top of the toe constantly digs into your toes but also provides a killing toe hook strength. Good for short agressive climbs but if you're going to have along day of climbing prepare for blisters until the calluses grow.
