I’ve only gotten on some walls once with these and I like them already. The sizing recommendation worked perfectly for a street size 9 over here. These are my first pair of more aggressive shoes, so my toes were a little more crunched than usual (in my pink Momoa LVs), but I didn’t take them off for almost 80 minutes which surprised me. Did that mean my toes didn’t feel the crunch? No, they did, but I was pleased with the grip on the soles. I just need to trust them a little more to finish a couple projects!
Also, I wish these were a little smaller in volume, but I have no issue with the shoe moving around as I’m climbing.
I really love these shoes so far. They were really tight at first so I was a little concerned, but they loosened up after a few weeks and fit perfectly now. I’m a size 11 in Nike and got a size 12. They immediately improved my climbing and I also appreciate the way they look.
Followed the sizing guide. At first I couldn’t even put my foot in the shoe and thought I should’ve gone up a half size but once I got in and had a miserable few sessions it def stretched out and now very nice and comfortable. Street shoe size 8 and went with a 8.5.
Been wearing this shoe for 2 weeks now. It lived up to the reviews and is my go to bouldering shoe now. I sized between their 2 men's sizing recommendations based on some reviews that the shoe could be too tight. However, I did not find that to be the case and would recommend sticking to the smaller sizing recommendation if you're not sure.
I am constantly on the lookout for that special shoe that is perfect for me, and I think I have found it. I have been wearing this shoes 3-4 days a week for a year now (on my second pair) and I can't say enough praise for these shoes.
As with any climbing shoe, sizing is KEY! Read and follow the SoiLL sizing recommendations, this is not a beginner shoe and needs to be tight so it can hold tension (to big and its about as useful as a flip flop on rock walls).
Soft, this is by far the softest shoe I have ever worn, it feels like a sock (you have to size it right to make sure the shoe is tight enough to hold tension).
Dark Matter Rubber - no other rubber brand can compare, this is the softest, stickiest rubber out there (downside it does wear pretty quickly).

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
Dark Matter 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.
