Review 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: duckwalk, 2005-01-29

Nice shoe that is quite narrow and has very minimal stretch. Very good edging. Once broken in can handle slabs to slight overhanging, and are very comfortable. Have lasted two resoles and I don't want to get rid of these things.

This is a pretty decent shoe. It took a while for them to break in and stretch a little, but they are very comfortable now. The stiffnes makes smearing a little difficult, but edging is effortless.

Nice shoe. Very stiff sole. Good for long climbs and edging. You can stick the tiniest edges with these shoes. A little expensive for what I would call a beginner shoe.

true they are stiff - thats because of the 4mm XSV...these things are solidly built but takes alooong time to break them in and the sole lacks sensitivity. neccesarily recommend for beginnners as a first shoe. just my 2 cents.good lucky and rock on!!
