An amazing pair of shoes! Very similar to the old 5.10 Dragons, only they fit much, much better. I got mine pretty tight, but the synthetic lining is nice and soft, keeping them from being painful. The velcro straps really glue the shoe to your feet, and I have no problem keeping them nice and snug on my low volume feet. They are cut low around the ankle, avoiding any interference with your foot's range of motion. The last is quite radical; the whole front of the foot is downturned, like the Sportiva Venom, and the toe is turned down even more, like the 5.10 V10. For orverhanging climbing, these shoes are top notch. Once they get broken in and become a little more flexible they are excellent for climbs closer to the vertical. The construction is also amazing, even better than La Sportiva. If you dig the less-than-vertical and the shoe fits, you will not be disappointed with the predator.
