Super sticky shoe, but can be painful. 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: shimmer, 2008-07-10

The good:
These shoes *stick*. If there is ANYTHING on the all to stick to, they're going to find it. They're that sticky. They're VERY aggressive. Great bouldering shoes for over hanging stuff, your feet will feel so super strong in them. They will stretch but not a whole heck of a lot.
The Bad:
The heel could be improved dramatically...they're not as gripping as I would like. But, the heel cup is perfect as far as depth for a female foot.
The REALLY bad:
The seams across the front of the shoe are ridiculously painful on the top of the toes. I've got a 37.5 and a 36.5, the pain isn't as bad (surprisingly enough) in my 36.5s. Standing in these shoes, vertical climbing in these huuurrts.

If my shoes were children these would be my favorite and the other kids would just have to deal with 5 out of 5 stars

Ok, so straight out I'll admit a bias. Scarpas were my first shoes and when they stopped selling them in Canada for a while I was a bit upset. Thank God for

Pros- Despite being highly down-turned I found the wider toe area makes these really comfortable.
-The rubber around the toes is holding out a really long time and I find the rubber stickier then my old 5 10s and Sportivas.
- Unlined means these shoes really form to your foot if you can stand them tight for a bit.
- The velcro and tongue are really comfy. For such an aggressive shoe I can't believe how nice they feel.

Cons- Hmmmm.... I guess the rubber could be a little stickier and maybe they could put some stuff on the heel to make it grip better like Madrock. If you like flat shoes these aren't for you.
