excellent edging. average smearing because of the not as sticky rubber, but they last longer. these shoes are GREAT all around, gym, sport shoes. i would recommend getting either 1/2 size down or your street shoe size...due to the lining, they do not stretch at all (at least mine didn't) and they smell good because of some antibacterial lining or what not. but yeah, these shoes are amazing.

Because of the somewhat thick (for sport climbers) diameter of this rope, it makes a great beginners rope- i used it for my first year of toproping and my first 8 months of lead. however, the thickness starts to suck when making clips more than 50 feet up routes- pretty heavy. so, my next rope will be 9.8 or so. but still a great rope.
