I bought the jet 7's down in bishop for $117 and thought i was getting a good deal. Later on i realized why they were so much cheaper than the Team and the Dragon. They're all very similar shoes, but the fit is quite different for each due to the fasteners. And the jet 7's are by far the easiest to get in and out of, which i really liked. Also, i'm a fan of the HF rubber, its been around for awhile and is crazy sticky. But thats where the pros end. The Cons: 1. The Heel! comes up too high, and it slips off my heel even though the shoe was super f'n tight. I like the anasazi heel cup much better. 2. The strap is weird and pulls to much from the top of the shoe. 3. The cheap looking rubber over the top of the shoe is rather weak compared to the Team(which i ended up buying). All in all the Jet 7 isn't a terrible shoe but it definitely has some downfalls. I would recommend the Team instead, it fits way better and has the new 5.10 rubber.

My favorite bouldering shoes. I love them, because they have a deeper heel. These shoes rock and conform to tiny crystals so you can send that project that you have been dogging for the past week. I use them for both sport and bouldering, but they specifically excel at bouldering.
I sized same size as my shoe size and they fit excellent. They did not stretch at all. My only complaint is that the strap was too long, but I cut it and burned it so it wouldn't fray.

I've only used them 10 times so far, but awesome first impression! Crazy sticky and great for grabbing pockets with the toe and solid heel for slopey top outs. Bought one size smaller then anasazis
for the steeps

the jet7's are my first foray into five ten's high performance shoes. as a longtime muira user, I must say that i am overly impressed with five ten's effort. powerful toe, great rubber, and a heel that promises not to blow. my only initial reservation was the single velcro strap. i was a bit concerned it would not provide adequate support and fit for hard climbing. what i failed to notice, however, was that the bimodal strap can be used to tighten the toe area OR the midsole/heel, which allows the user to up the performance based on specific route demands.
size down 1 or 1.5 sizes from other 5.10 shoes.
125$ is a steal.
