I have used the Kintaro in both bouldering problems and sport climbing, and I have not been disappointed! The shoes really grip, with nice sensitivity. I went 1 size lower then my street shoe and they fit tight, not painful but need to take them off every 15min or so if not in the middle of a climb. The downturn toe has made bouldering much better, with the ribbing sole and textured heel for hooking. This is an all around shoe! The 2 strap is very good too, I was worried about only 2 straps after using Evolv 3 straps for a while, but with the thicker upper strap I can tell no difference. No complaints from me.
