what to say

these shoes are just amazing. they smear like butter and warm toast, they edge like the blade of a knife, and they have the power of the incredible hulk. honestly, all this comes bound up minimally in rubber that still provides the sensitivity of sun burnt skin. the only draw back i found is that they heel is about non-existent and will become baggy if the shoe is not bought small enough. this being said, you can buy the damn things painful as all hell and know that its ok because they stretch like stretch-arm-strong. the heel has not given me any trouble on heel hooks, although its a bit baggy its never released my foot onto the rock. they are downturned, not super aggressively, but enough to give anyone who craves the masochistic appeal of foot torture their fix. the toe is nicely powerful while at the same time conformist, so you can eventually have a flat shoe that will immediately down turn on request. no reason not to get these shoes if you are really getting into climbing, just stray away if you are a beginner are someone who climbs mostly vertical and slab, because that would just be wasting this shoe on something it wasnt meant for..............by the way, i wear a size 12 street shoe, and a size 10.5 in this shoe opened up to be loose after the break in period, which was a bit longer than normal, i have a 8.5 pair that i fit into now but am saving for another time.
