This model is my favorite daily. I have the previous in lime green too and new version largely feels the same. Soill stiff is still relatively soft. This buckle style is nice for quick on and off. I have a slightly wide foot (solid e in men's widths) but this shoe fits me well at a half or fill size up depending on how tight. Heel cup fits pretty snug despite not having any elastic around the ankle, I can still do casual heel hooks even without velcroing the buckle down. Super comfy. Also gotta love a vegan shoe. 5 stars.
They are a perfect combination between comfort and great quality. The hook and the heel hook and amazing and although they look very asymmetric they are super comfortable.
I love them!
These shoes were my first aggressive wear. It took no time for me to get adjusted to them and they provided a huge advantage in cave and overhang climbing. Never felt better control with my footwork until I climbed with these shoes. I would recommend these to anyone who wants to move into a more aggressive shoe.
These are incredible shoes for the smallest of edges. So far I've put in about 7.5 hours in them training in my home gym. I had previously had a pair if the New Zero Pros before and I loved them too. The main differences I can see are that the Free Range Pro are vastly better for standing on small feet and lack a little on the parkour style volumes. Whereas the New Zero Pros are the opposite, they truly shine on the volumes but I found I couldn’t quite trust my feet on the tricky slabs. Honestly in a perfect world get a pair of both and you will be golden. Both shoes are very comfy which is very important while still being precise. The rubber is sticky and I recommend them for anyone looking to level up their shoe game. TAKEHOLD with the So ill shoes.
After a couple uses they are feeling nice and broken in. The Dark Matter rubber mixed with the down turn makes you feel comfortable all over the wall, especially on smaller chips. I was worried they would be too aggressive for routes with no overhang, but realistically they can be used as a work horse anywhere!
