I completely agree with everything said prior, this shoe destroys everything. There are just a few things that I would like to add: First is that I have a medium to high-volume foot and this shoe fits me just fine. Second is that something is either different in the sizing of our street shoes, or we just have different fit ideas. I wear a ten street shoe in everything; nike, brooks, saucony, mizuno, five ten, but for my VCS's I down-sized two sizes. A size 8 seems perfect for me, I can wear them for 15-20 minutes at a time if I want to without any excesssive pain. I'd say that the stretch is around a quarter of a size, very minimal indeed. Definetly a re-soler, just try them on before ordering.

I bought theses a little over a month ago and have climbed in them about a dozen times. I'm impressed with them so far. I went down 1 size from my street shoe for the VCS's and even if they stretch a little(which they're not suppose to) they'll still be a good fit. I can heal hook hard in these and even if my placement is a little off these seem to compensate by staying on the rock. edging and toe placements are alway secure. smearing is subpar compared with the level of the other abilities of this shoe, but that could change with a little more break in time. I'm no rock shoe connoisseur and havent been climbing regularly for all that long but I'll venture to say there's probably not much on the market that will equate the VCS/V2
Very good Overall shoe

I am very impressed with this shoe. I wanted something that I could climb in for all types of situations. They have a slight asymmetrical toe, and are slightly downturned, but nothing crazy. They are very sharp edged shoes, with nice pointy toes to really get into tiny little cracks and edges. The rubber is amazing, the heel is amazing as it totally hugs your foot and draws your heel down into the shoe making your whole foot nice and compressed into the shoe. They are medium to firm soled, and the fit is very snug if you buy your street shoe size. I wear a size 13/14 street shoe and got a 13 and I could not go any smaller without breaking my feet. They are very snug and a tad painful at first, but once I start climbing they are perfect. The only thing I really wish they did better was have a stiffer sole on the edges. I am a big guy and trying to hold my body up on a tiny little foot jib or edge is sometimes a real challenge. I think I am going to try the Acopa Spectre's or Galileo's next as I have heard they are even stiffer than the VCS's. But overall, just an amazing shoe, very very precise and work on everything.
Fair performance shoe
Review by: eddieaks, 2007-10-19
climbed with it for 2months, bought with 1 size down and still feel the tight on toes. stretched very little, heel cup does not fit me tight but still perform well. stickiness of the rubber is just fair, few times slipped off from the foot hold while climb bouldering. overall the shoe is very comfortable once get the correct size.
after 7months back from my first review above, now i've to admit this is really a good performance shoe. the breakin period is rather long. the rubber is freaky sticky and durable. i been climbing with it atleast 2days a week for about 8months, now started to worn with a small hole at the toe rand, this is my most durable shoe i ever have. thanks to ONYX rubber. it works perfect on smearing, fair on edging and poor on heel hook cause by big air pocket.
