Incredibly happy with this. Went a full size up from my street size, ended up with a fit perfect for gym sessions. Comfy upper, super sticky, good mix of feel and protection.
Not broken in but already feel more comfortable then my broken in VS's. I'm pretty wide footed so these seem to work a lot better. Not crazy aggressive but perfect for me, felt pretty comfortable on slab.
I went with .5 size up from my shoe size and my toes HURT breaking them in. After a few hours the rubber stretched a bit.
Such soft and sticky rubber, very much worth the price point if you can get the sizing right. Can’t speak for how well they hold up overtime (strap, shape and rubber durability). Really happy with the performance and style so far.
Ordered this shoe as my first climbing shoe. Couldve gone a half size down from the recommended size once the rubber had been broken in. Great beginner shoe. Feels like I can stick onto the wall better than some of my friends climbing with different branded shoes.
These bad boys do it all. Street size for crushing boulders in the gym. Full size up for somehow handling granite slab, techy sport routes and roofs. Size in between for best of both worlds s. Super comfy and feel better the longer worn in the gym. Rubber starting to go after 2 years but I will continue to ride these until the wheels fall off.

The synthetic vegan upper fits like a slipper, and the fabric is normally used on the inside of durable work boots in the footwear industry. For a shoe at this level, it is incredibly comfortable. The thread we use for the upper is specially made in the southeast as one of the softest threads in the world, and cannot be felt in the toe box. This shoe is sensitive and every detail matters when performing at a high level.
No Hot Spots
The toe rubber meets the rand by butting up together, with no overlapping. This is incredibly hard to do in production and provides no hot spots.
