Since I've finally gotten a chance to take them out on something I can give a little review. First off they are way tight. I wear 9.5 street shoe and I got them in 10.0 and I still feel like they are a bit snug. No worries on that as you just take them off after every route/problem. They excel on steeply overhanging problems, like 30+ degree overhanging, and especially on overhanging pockets. If you try these on anything slab to vertical you will be hurting, as they are not designed for this type of climbing. Overall great value but not the perfect steep route shoe. Once you wear out the DDS soles get them resoled with Steath C4 or Trax XT5 and they should be fine.
