There are always going to be those with odd sized feet. So no shoe is for everyone. Mine are no exception. This is my first approach shoe, and I must say that I am already sold. My gear whore buddies that work at the shop have blown out and destroyed most of their approch shoes seemingly quickly. I still don't know how these will fair in the long term. That said, I love these shoes. They are comfortable, stable, and lace up very nicely. Getting the right fit was key and they were just perfect. To qualify, I need a little more arch support and have generally been disappointed by the support I have gotten from any shoe, even boots. The thermal moldable insoles that you can get for these shoes is amazing. I got these for my two week marathon of climbing at Red Rocks and Joshua Tree, and feared that the toll would be too great on my feet. Last year one week in Potreo had me limping home and taking off two months to recover. This year, nothing but good times, sore muscles, and my feet have never felt better after such abuse. The rubber is awesome and traction was unprecedented, at least to me. A perfect shoe for this Noob. Where did Jung get the grey pair?
