I just got back from my first climbing trip of the season and am really pleased with these shoes. I also have to say that they are really burly.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Contrary to the other reviewer I have to say that these shoes perform really well on rocky terrain. I have used them a lot in our rugged limestone mountains for easy climbing and have always been satisfied with their grip.

The materials show marked signs of usage after a short period, therefore only 4 stars.
