this shoe is, hands down, the best shoe ever made. I've owned quite a few pairs and now that they are discontinued I use them only for the hardest redpoints. I write this in hopes that Scarpa will continue to produce them. I got a pair of the new Tifosis (part of the new lineup) by Scarpa and they climb like a Blah Sportiva. This shoe edges like a demon. I wore them on the first and only ascent of Jazz Rock Confusion, 13d, at the New River Gorge. I'm quite certain that the route cannot be repeated without Scarpa Dominators. I'm not even joking and I dare you to try to prove me wrong.
Best shoe I've ever worn.

Sharma backs the Anazazi Velcroes, Graham backs the V-10, Caldwell the Lace-ups...well folks Joshua McDaniel says the Scarpa Dominators are his shoe of choice. I've worn owned or demoed each of the shoes above (and many more), but hands down I choose the Dominators for my hard redpoints, which clock in at an awesome 5.12. These shoes combine sensitivity with great power edging that no other shoe in my experience can match. The rubber is sticky and actually lasts long enough to really get some use out of the shoe.

I've had a pair of these for over a year and I love 'em! They're a well balanced shoe, aggresively curved but tolerably comfortable. I can leave them on between climbs. The Scarpa rubber is a little tougher than most, not as sticky but it edges harder as is much, much more durable. You will get your money's worth out of Scarpas.

Bought a pair of these and found the rubber not as good as thee C4. They weren't as precise as my 5.10 Anasazi's nor did they have the same sensitivity. I would not buy another pair of these again.

My first pair of rock climbing shoes.
At first they were very tight but have since stretched quite a bit and my toes are almost uncurlled
the rubber is pretty good.
They are a great shoe and I have confidence when I am standing on just my toes.
the toe box has alot of rubber on it so it might cause a bit of discomfort.
if you are thinking of buying a set of these shoes make sure you fit them right. I found that the slingshot is very deciving and there is a bit of baggyness in the heel (apparently not that uncommon either)
if you fit them right they will work out to be a great shoe. I gave them a 3 because of my own faults of not sizing them right and the baggy heal.
