These shoes fill a niche for me. I sized them tight and they are outstanding for edging and crystal climbing on slabs and vertical crimpfests, quite amazing what I have found myself standing on with them. But...Steeps are not the Newton's realm. They are too stiff and flat to really toe down with. And at a $150, they are too specialized, so buy them on sale somewhere and how you size them will dictate their use.
