These shoes are so great and cute! Only advice is order at least a half size if not a full size up! I would have returned them if I was able to only to get a bigger size but I’m trying to make it work!

Fantastic for setting and day to day use

Bought these to set in and coach,

These shoes are brilliant, comfy and light. The rubber is great to test blocs and boulder problems in ranging from VB to V7 (depending on the footholds and terrain).

I wear a street size UK9 and got a UK8.5 for a snugger fit so my foot does not roll around inside the shoe, and it is spot on!

I have brought 2 pairs over the 1 and a half, and i will definitely recommend to anyone!

Super comfy and sticky

Great rubber and great fit! These shoes are great for forerunning some of the easier routes.

Great Shoes

Shoes felt great as soon as I put them on. The material used seems high quality! The rubber on the bottom is some of the stickiest I have ever felt. The grip is legit! Excited to try these out on more moderate approaches.

Awesome for Setting!

Amazing shoes, I bought these more then a year ago for setting as i am a full time setter in bouldering and route climbing.

I bought these to do exactly that and it is incredible! Super sticky dark matter rubber to test blocs and routes, super durable on the ball of the foot where you go on your toes.

my first pair lasted for a year and a bit now and its finally work in and broken at the bottom of my ball of the foot. This is due to wear and tear that it now has a huge hole which causes water to pop in at the bottom to my foot.

The material on the outside is super water resistant and when i jet wash holds or walk in the rain, my feet were mega dry! ( until the hole)

these are brilliant. i bought another pair to replace my first pair and i will continue to do so until these shoes are discontinued!

Mega happy and chuffed with these shoes, well done So iLL!
