These were my first shoe and at first I loved them. The thermo-moldable system is awesome and makes for a very comfy shoe. I climbed in these until the left toe developed a major hole and I went with a new pair of evolvs. Originally I loved these shoes, however, they started causing me severe arch pain and the rubber is really just too soft. The toes wore out much too quickly.
After switching to the evolvs, I realized how much these montrails really arn't that great of shoes. In comparison they do not edge well nor do they smear well and the bottom of the shoe is much too stiff.

I purchased these shoes used from a friend because mine old shoes had major holes developing and he wasn't using these anymore. He had quite a bit of use out of them already so I didn't expect to get much wear from them. After using them for two months I really love these shoes. They are easily the most comfortable shoes I've climbed in and have great grip and edging. I've finally worn them completely out though with a massive hole developing in the left toe. I love them so much though, that I am going to have them re-soled.
I highly recommend these to anyone.
