Great rubber, sensitive
Review by: jermanimal, 2009-04-02
I didn't expect these to be as sensitive out of the box as they were, rubber is great. The shoe is very sensitive in the toe and fore foot, much more so then I was expecting, I thought it was supposed to be a little stiffer shoe, not so. This shoe does everything well.
The toe "vents" in rubber are not in the right place for me, and cause pressure, but trade off for more power is fine. I take off every route to keep sweat down, otherwise a very hot and sweaty shoe. They perform fantastically and haven't stretched an iota. My only complaint is the velcro is completely sub-par. The strap is cloth over thinner webbing, it would be better if it was thicker, wider webbing, but it might just be where it hits my foot. The heal is solid, but I give it an average, I like hooking with the fins on MRs, but these fits me well.
As with any shoe, fit is super important. They are 1/2 size down from some of my other shoes, again this is basically completely worthless and random.
