I rated these shoes 5 for anyone with long narrow feet and who are allround climbers. I have had a pair now for about nine mounths and from the word go they have been great smearing, edging, pocket and "comfi " (as far as climbing shoes go that is! ) from multi-pitch full day climbs to short hard sport routes, have had nothing bad to say about them. I've been through all the Scarpras and many others and are the happiest with these to date.
