Great fit for my feet. I am new to the sport so I do not have a whole lot to compare to but I did try on lots of shoes before I finally found these. I do not like the color, but I had to sacrafice style for fit and I am happy overall. I would recommend these for sure.

Shoes started out ok, but they got sloppier and sloppier. I wear a ten and I bought an eight and a half. They were tight at first but they were never incredibly uncomfortable because of how soft they are. The more that I wore them the softer they got. Now when I try and pull and aggressive toe hook my toes are able to curl all the way up in them and I lose all control. If I wanna climb slab or crack these work fairly well, but they don't hold to well on small foot chips or aggressive sport climbs. Oh yeah and after about six months my toes are about to push thought the bottom.
great overall, beginner/intermediate shoe

Really happy with them so far, but they do turn your feet slightly red.
Great beginner shoe but...stretched too much.

I'm a somewhat new recreational climber that goes about 2 days a week and climb around v4-v5
Purchased the shoes about 3 or 4 months ago and bought them 2 sizes smaller than my street shoes. A little painful at first but they stretched nicely.
Overall the shoe worked great for heel hooks, smearing and just using my toes and etc.
HOWEVER the problem with the shoes is that they didn't stop stretching and now there's a pocket and they no longer fit as nicely as they should. Moreover, they would turn my feet all red after wearing them for some time, probably having to do with the material used on the inside.
It's unfortunate that these shoes stretched so much. They are still usable but not to the extent that they were when I had first purchased them. It is also unfortunate that others I know who had at one point purchased the same shoe had the same problem.
I would advise on purchasing the shoes either extremely small so that when it does stretch and continue to stretch that it'll have gone to a size not too big.
I would not buy it again as if I'm going to invest in a shoe I'd prefer to get a little longer out of it especially if I'm only a recreational climber vs someone who is giving the shoes a beating.
great comfort and climbing ability

I just bought these shoes today at an EMS store and used them for the first time. I am a recreational climber and have used other types of shoes in the past and found these to be above the others. with the slight point in the toe I am able to really grip onto the crimps and small holds. I wore them for 3 hours climbing and walking and the comfort was beyond expectations. overall I find it to be a very good shoe and definitely worth the money.
