Maybe I fit these shoes a little looser than Freeskicolorado but I can easily see these becoming my go to hard crack and steep climb shoes. I literally bumped up 1-2 letter grades the first day i used these. Probably not entirely due to the shoe but they really helped me because they do everything well. They felt powerful on little crimps and slabby parts and notched great and securely into pockets and cracks. The first thing I did when I put these on is send a long standing project of mine. That is the first time a shoe out of the box performed so well. Now I just hope the not stretching part is true. Awesome!

This is a great shoe for overhanging rock. If you can't or don't want to wear a severely downturned shoe due to discomfort or whatever, this is the ticket. The overall last is flat to slightly downturned, but there the sole has a noticeable downturn just at the big toe. This makes the shoe perform incredibly well when toed-in on tiny edges and pockets on overhanging terrain.The downsides? These are extremely painful to wear on slabs. Vertical rock is bearable. Keep these on steep stuff where they belong. Also, the curvature and stiffness of the sole makes it difficult to smear on sloping footholds, overhanging or not.The shoe does not stretch in length at all thanks to the generous rand coverage over the toes. Heel and toe hooking performance is excellent.The Vibram XS rubber is, IMO, better than either 5.10's Stealth or Evolv's Trax. It's stickier, but may be less durable.Perfect bouldering shoe, or sport climbing shoe for places like the Red River Gorge or Rumney (where the footholds tend to be positive).
