2nd best shoe I've ever had.

These shoes are a close second to the Scarpa Dominators. I absolutely loved these shoes for climbing at the gym so that I could save the Dominators for redpointing outside. I think the Dominators and Vortex have nearly the same last...the heels are different, but they have similar symetry at the toes. The rubber is listed at Megabyte, but whatever it is my experience with it has been amazing. It's been very good to me, sticking where I need it and lasting much longer than could have been expected. I thrashed these shoes at the gym on a newly textured wall at least 2-3 days a week. They have held up for going on over a year, with a small hole starting to open at the big toe. Too bad you can't find these easily any more. I wish I could always have a pair in my quiver.
