Excellent All Around Technical Shoe 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: Jrocketclimber, 2009-03-16

This is my first women-specific shoe and I am quite happy with them. I found one size was too small and the other was a bit big, and for the first time, I went with the larger size. I got the Hera to be a good technical shoe for longer routes, so sizing a little big should keep my feet comfy. They don't feel too big when I am climbing and they are surprisingly comfortable between pitches. My first route with them involved a fair amount of smearing, and the Evolv rubber was plenty sticky, yet the shoe is stiff enough for more vertical climbs. My only complaint is that my feet do get pretty warm in them, so I wish they had a vent hole or two to keep the air moving.

All in all, an excellent all-around, technical shoe.

These shoes are honestly my all around favorites- nothing you can't climb in them. They particularly excel at thin face holds- super sticky from day one. It is true that the heel has a little unused space, but they steel heel hook great. I love them for climbs that really have a lot of variety- a little crack, a little slab, a little steepness, etc.
