I've had these for two years and I love them...the rubber toe guard thingy is starting to peel back on one of them, but that's it. They're super comfy too. I got the gore tex XCR model and it's awesome to just walk through streams or muddy trail sections.

I use these as my approach shoes and I'll attest to the stickiness of the rubber. Use them on 3rd and 4th class ascents/descents like the ones at Tahquitz. Great for boulder hopping with confidence too. The only times I've ever slipped in these shoes was due to my own clumsiness :)

Seriously, when it comes time to replace them, I may just drive over to REI and get the same shoes again.

Excellent shoe. I agree they're very sticky and I find myself climbing in them on easier grades all the time.

These shoes are awsome, they have stealth rubber. They grip like no other shoe ive ever had, if you dont have them get them. There is even a gore-tex model.
