Rename: adjusting to new shoe styles (see last post)

Hey guys,

My shoes are about 10 years old now, have probably only done two years of climbing in them over that time... Yep, feet haven't grown since 16, although toes are a bit sore at the base if I don't have enough excess lace (tight on my feet, loose as you look at the shoe)

I'm doing a fair amount of bouldering atm, as well as walls, so I am considering upgrading to something a bit more pointy, bouldering style, that's still comfortable.

Anyway, was wondering if anyone has seen or have their own reviews on my current shoes, the Saltic Spirit.

All I Can find is this:

Have also just found a pair on the Saltic Website but they're a revised model... with contours on the heel :o

The reason I ask is because I have nothing to compare it to myself, and if these shoes are actually really good I'll just pay to get em re-soled...
They're pretty worn now, and it won't be long before they start peeling off..

I remember when I purchased them asking for a beginner shoe, so was thinking I should probably take the next step, if it'll help my climbing.

Cheers!
