I don't see anything dealing with failure of the shoe in terms of lace holes or side walls, perhaps I was just lucky and got a really nice pair. Anyway:
The shoe stretches a lot. I bought a shoe size of 8 and I normally wear a climbing shoe size of 9. The shoe itself fits like a glove. Rubber works great, though not a good shoe to be toe jamming in. Real soft shoe, but surprisingly durable (in my case). I've used these shoes for a year, between abusing them in the gym and a few climbs outdoors. Heel sticks like glue.
Perhaps my only complaint with these shoes are that the laces are a little too long. But other than that, I have zero complaints.
