This shoes are good, but I almost want to rate them lower because the velcro Anastazi and the Evolve Kaos do such a better job. Once again, Five Ten has introduced "dime-edge" technology, which is nothing more than a fancy way of saying that they made the toe portion stiffer and thicker. I wore these for 3 months while my Antastazi's were off for repair, and these never performed up to their level; however they were good performers overall and I have no major complaints. They are less stiff than the Southwest, which is good, but you could spend your money better elsewhere. If you can get these shoes for a cheap price, I would go for it, but there is no way they're worth close to $140. They come sized very very small... you'll need to buy at least one half size larger, and possibly even a whole size, depending upon the width of your foot.
