not all around crack shoe 3 out of 5 stars

They are not an all-around crack shoe. Good for larger, maybe even off-width cracks. The toebox is not small enough to fit in the small stuff. The hidden laces should be on all lace-ups...they're great. It is probably a good all-around shoe.

good shoe 4 out of 5 stars

So far, I like this shoe. (ps- it's a LACE UP!)

First off, most 5.10 shoe toe shapes don't work for my feet (my second toe is as long as my big toe). However, this shoe provides a fit with no slop for my toes while allowing my toes to not be jammed up with their knuckles grinding through the top of the shoe.

For climbing, I'd say they do very well for trad climbing. Not as well for power-edging 5.11 and up, but just fine for easier stuff. The modified shape of the toebox gives you less power on your big toe... which is also the reason it makes jamming easier and less painful for thin-hand and smaller cracks.

I haven't found the offset laces on the instep side of the shoe to be a big difference one way or another.

Overall good shoe; would recommend it.
