What a find
Review by: karma, 2007-03-05
My girlfriend and I rescued three pairs of these from the back room of a local outfitter this past weekend. She's stoked because they are akin to her Bamba's (her favortie shoe on the planet) and I like them because of the nifty pocket under the toe knuckles, just in front of the ball of my foot. It creates a nice pivot point and great way to shift weight on holds. I wish current shoes had this feature!
Ok, so the attached catalog was for the 2000-2001 collection... the rubber is in perfect condition and I am not advanced enough to know if it stinks or not, but so far they smear better than my MadRocks (Phoenix), fit as snugly as my Montrails (Index) without the Velcro issues (grrr) and are more secure in the heel than my crack climbing Acopas (Chameleon).
If it were possible to find more of these, I would suggest you buy them.
