they go in cracks. What can I say. Apperently the size/ colours match with dmm nuts which i guess is kinda handa if you use them both.

I love this shoe! I have a size 40 (I wear a 42 street shoe) and if fits great, its nice and snug and real comfy too, once its broken in.
It doesn't hinder smearing ability which I was afraid it might. and it edges great.
also though it says its narrow i have always thought of myself as broad footed and I don't have any problem. (maybe I do have narrow feet and I didn't know but I don't think so).
one other thing it dyes your feet pink. but sure who really cares about that.

The zipka plus has got 4 LEDs up from the three that the original had. and its nice and bright especially close up. I used it last night hiking out through a bog/swamp in the dark and it was good enough to stick to the trail and look around a bit. it doesnt stay on well with head gear.... my hood kept knocking it forward, though it will fit fine around a helmet that has 'light clips'. and it does shake a little but not so bad. I have also used it night climbing and didnt have any problems with it. it moves a little but it was'nt enough to bother me! but perhaps I wasnt moving around enough to shift. I have tried a frieds tikka plus which really does hold nice and snug to your head, but it is alot heavier. anyway i love it. it could be a little brighter at a distance. the zip cord thing might not hold 100% well to your head. but its tiny and I love tiny things!! oh it also has a few diferent settings bright, less bright, dim and flashing
