Love the quality and comfort of the shoe. Built very nicely and the shoes are much nicer (like a dress shoe) that I expected. I mean, I'm still wearing mine to gym because of the solid foundation but they are definitely a versatile shoe that I look forward to wearing. Sizing is good and true to my usual.
Recently picked a pair up for my wife. She really likes the fit and overall comfort. The extra grip is a huge plus considering she was rocking vans before. Sizing seems pretty spot on and other than longevity (haven’t had them long enough yet) they are a pretty rad light approach/setting shoe.
These shoes are killer! Off you're on the fence just buy them! That are really worth it! This is the first pair of shoes that I don't have to untie to get them on my feet. You tie them snug once and then they slip right on and hug your feet! I can't wait to try them out for setting once we build our climbing gym.
I figured that these would be just like other low-profile approaches, but it's excels at certain points.
- material feels solid
- cork footbed is surprisingly spongey (doesn't feel like it will peel away as easily as other cork products I own)
- Rubber feels grippy
- Best factor: Heel is super easy to slide on and off
- The heel has no grip. Testing routes with heelhooks in it are uncomfortable and the shoe feels like it could slide off easy on them.
