Trad, Beginner, or Intermediate?

These are entirely Symetrical with laces right down to the toes and have a double thick rand around the top/sides. You can crank in cracks, edge well on vert, and you can wear em hard and fast and not have to worry about blowing out the top of the toes!
I don't wear these everyday now, but anytime I climb slab or cracks I still love these things. Reccommended for anyone who wants an all day trad shoe or a beginner looking to score something that isn't rented.
I sized these down from 9.5 to 8.0 and they've stretched to be a perfect all day shoe and maximize their edging potential without being too painful to wear for hours and hours.
If you sweat, they turn your feet blue. Period.
