I used to wear 8 of Puma sneakers and Korean shoes as 255~260. my feet shape is wide in forefoot, sharp in heel. And I just started v5 while bouldering for about 5months.
I ordered 8 mans size of this, A thumb toe is fit perfect but 2, 3rd toe is hurt. Therefore I would recommend buying 8.5 for who are same size with me.
Anyway, I love this color and design!
These shoes are fantastic looking. They also have extremely sticky rubber and a nice downturn to help hook those holds. I love mine.
The matched the fit and feel of my old 5-10's and are very very comfortable ...as an intermediate who has no issues with a tight fit I went half way between the size guide for pro and beginner and it was spot on ...but read the size guide! get it right.
Cost me a fair amount in duties to get from US to Portugal but then this is to be expected and they were not available in this colour and my size in EU ...but that is quickly forgotten.
The grip is awesome, especially on toe hooks and inverts, so no complaints there at all.
They are head turners for sure, but not over the top and I keep to myself at my local wall so have yet to have a question ..but i am sure they will come.
Cool shoes, awesome design
This pair of shoes is mythical in a sense. It’s a ridiculously comfortable shoe but still maintains a high level of performance. The rubber is sticky to the point that I confuse the wall for toe chips. I was worried about the durability since it’s such a soft shoe but these shoes show no signs of slowing down even after frequent use.
Aesthetically: I cannot get enough of the split sole paint jobs. Please keep this design around!
