I bought these shoes a couple of weeks ago to replace a different pair of Scarpas that I've had for a while. I'm a beginner and am very pleased with the performance, fit, and comfort as compared to other shoes that I have tried. I chose a women's 6.5 rather than an 7.5 which is my street shoe size and they feel like they mold to my feet. The size 7 would have been fine but I prefer them to be a bit tighter. I have climbed with them in the gym several times and on rock once so far. The edging is excellent but I'm hoping that the smearing will improve as they get broken in a bit more as I experienced quite a bit of slippage. My feet also get very sweaty and they don't provide the best ventilation. Aside from those two issues, these shoes are wonderful. I have not experienced any hot spots or extreme discomfort like I did with my old shoes and feel that they are helping me develop my footwork by allowing me to concentrate on my foot placement rather than how much pain I'm experiencing in my toes. I wore them for several hours without any major discomfort. I also like that they are lace-ups which allows me to fine tune the fit a bit more than moccs or velcro. I definitely recommend these shoes.
