I now have two pairs, and I love them. La Sportiva makes a nice wide shoe, and they're very comfy. They don't smear the best, but you can't have your cake and eat it too, although this is probably the closest you'll come. I'll get them resoled with C4 and see if they still perform.

Ohhh HB, I pine for you. If you can get these now, do. As a second set they are awesome. I will carry these before my wallnuts on mixed routes. They place so well.

Only good as a beginner shoe that your going to rub all the rubber off in a year at a gym. Poor edging and sloppy fit. Only pro is the price.

Sooooo much better that standard stoppers. The indents in the faces of these nuts allows placement that would be unusable for flat faces. These placements donít happen all that often, but when they do you'll be glad you have walnuts.

Nice hexes, and great to sling yourself. Lighter than wires, and easier to replace. I only give them a 4 because the curved metolius hexes are better anyday.
