While it is comfortable and fits well, I don't really care for the rubber. Seems a bit stiff and not precise, and I am unable to smear effectively. It is not comfortable enough for long wear. In my mind, those things combined make these shoes imcompatible with pretty much any type of climbing. I guess they are good shoes for heel hooks. Still, I stopped wearing them outside and exclusively wear them at the gym hoping it will wear out. Sure, they are cheaper, but I say shell out more money for better shoes.
