This is my first pair of climbing shoe, and I am really enjoying them. I purchased these after trying alot of different models. They have a great shape and structure, and I find them considerably comfortable. They were a little tight when I first purchased them, however the have relaxed slightly. I would not say they have gotten a whole size bigger. The tongue is padded and the velcro has held up remarkably well. I love being able to slip these on and off. I plan on keeping these for short bouldering, easy sport routes and gym training.
From what I understand these have been disconntinued which is unfortunate. The orignal rubber is quite nice, however is a bit stiff. When I resole them, I will be using the Stealth C4 rubber.
I gave them a 4 because there is no 4.5 They are comfortable, have good structure and edge nicely. They are a bit sketch for a really tough heel hook, and are not as senstitive as I would like. I use them mostly for casual stuff.
