Excellent shoe, if they fit.

I bought this shoe from the man who runs the gym I climb at for $20 because someone else had used them twice. They were like new. Best $20 I have ever spent, hands-down. These shoes fit very tight at first, uncomfortably so, but stretched out nicely after a few uses and now fit comfortably, like a sock or something.
These shoes are great on slab especially, I've found, but are also good for face climbing. Not so great on overhangs, but not terrible either. The rubber is great; super sticky and long lasting. That's the best thing about these shoes; I have used them almost exclusively for a year or so, climbing, on average, 2 times a week in the gym and many weekends outside, and they have LASTED. Of course they've softened, but for the most part they have held up. The nice thing about these shoes is the softness of the rubber, IMO. The rubber conforms to whatever you're placing your foot on, so non-existant micro crystals become uber-solid. Love them!
