awesome shoe ruined by a poor heel
Review by: ghisino, 2008-11-01
this shoes maybe have the best front portion I have ever tried in a shoe.
honestly very painful, but mixing power, precision and sensitivity like no other. Very versatile, too.
But, the soft heel construction is a huge limitation : unless you fill it perfectly, this kind of heel feels and works quite badly even sized insanely small.
It should either be made way smaller and tighter (maybe assuming that it stretches for people with big heel) OR, stiffened up someway.
The big disappointment for the bad heel comes when considering that being rather uncomfy, this velcro is more suited for boulders and steep routes than for long vertical walls (where it'll perform surprisingly well but cook your feet at the same time, substituting sensations with pain in the last meters).
so either you have a fat heel or its a one trick pony for specific problems where its power/sensitivity mix is appreciated and no crucial heel hook is involved. too bad.
