Great steep climbing shoe 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: eddieaks, 2008-07-20


Climbed with it less than 10days, so far work great for me on the steeply route. as others said, not for slab route where you will felt weird and uncomfortable stepping with this shoe. The shoe is very comfortable even got it size smaller, minimum air pocket on the heel, the only shoe so far that makes me feel secure with heel hook especially with lace tighten on. The rubber so far has not let me down yet, maybe too early to make conclusion.

Smearing = fair
Edging=poor
Steeply hold, especially pocket=excellent
Heel hook=excellent
Toe hook=not tested

after a month climb with it 2days perweek, the toe rand has worn out...seems the upper rubber really poor and soft.

Fair performance shoe 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: eddieaks, 2007-10-19


climbed with it for 2months, bought with 1 size down and still feel the tight on toes. stretched very little, heel cup does not fit me tight but still perform well. stickiness of the rubber is just fair, few times slipped off from the foot hold while climb bouldering. overall the shoe is very comfortable once get the correct size.

after 7months back from my first review above, now i've to admit this is really a good performance shoe. the breakin period is rather long. the rubber is freaky sticky and durable. i been climbing with it atleast 2days a week for about 8months, now started to worn with a small hole at the toe rand, this is my most durable shoe i ever have. thanks to ONYX rubber. it works perfect on smearing, fair on edging and poor on heel hook cause by big air pocket.
