I broke these in at my gym over a few nights, then switched them to my outdoor shoe. I love the feel of the shoe, the edging, the toe, everything...except the quality of the velcro strap.
I guess I need better footwork because I managed to wear out the nylon holding the metal rectangle which the velcro strap runs through. I know this is partially my fault, but I can't help feeling that it should have been a little more durable; after all, I've only taken the shoe out maybe 10 times, and my footwork isn't THAT bad.
Still, it's a good shoe, but I'm probably not buying another...

This has become my favorite shoe. Went one size down from my street size. This shoe now it fits like a glove. Great for sport, bouldering, and cracks. I've used them for everything.
A blast from the past, but updated.

Had to size them down a half size from my old zlippers. Was tight at first but after the leather stretched out (about 12 pitches) they fit just like the old ones, only with a better toe and heel. They edge and smear great, and frontpoint better than any other slipper i've tried.
