The first thing to say is that this shoe is not a beginners shoe. It is realy sensitive due to the thin rubber, it does hurt on sharp edges as you can feel them against other shoes with thicker rubber. The rubber does wear out quickly because of the it being thin. These shoes are realy good on anything overhanging as you can use your feet like hands. Using your big teo like a single finger with extra power. Once on they fit like a glove and are realy comfortable. Perfict for any area where the use of pockets is a large thing for instance honey comb style sandstone.

I haven't had to resole for 4 years of having this shoe. It is phenomenal. The soft nature takes some getting used to, but conforms great to small features and cracks. heel hooks are the only sketchy moves that I've come across, and usually only when you're matching on a hand.

I must agree that these shoes are extremely sensitive and uncomfortable to a limited degree. They're great for bouldering and short, sporty routes. However, they're murder on your feet if you're standing on little nubbins (e.g. Smith Rocks).

These were my first pair of shoes so I am partial but they are above all comfortable. The rubber is thin and will wear out quickly. Not the best edging shoe but can smear with the best of them. You can easily resole the shoes yourself and they are so comfy that they would be my shoe of choice on multi-pitch climbs or all day climbing.
