Good and Comfy first shoe!
Review by: austinnokc, 2009-07-21
These shoes seem equally at home on plastic or rock. They are an intermediate shoe that is great for all sorts of little projects. They stretch a fairly well. (I have lop-sided wide feet My left needs .5 size bigger but I sized for my right. They have stretched to accomodate both feet now and feel like foot gloves)
I have climbed pockets, jugs, hand cracks (not good in tiny cracks), moderate bouldering overhangs, vertical, slabs, and just about any other terrain and they perform exceptionally well.
However As your climbing improves you will want to buy another pair of shoes that make the more technical routes less difficult. I am at that point now. Going to buy a new pair and send my spires to get resoled.( I am going to get them resoled with Onyxx Rubber)
Great Shoes for all around comfort and performance necessary for climbing arsenal.
