These are much more comfortable comfortable but less sticky than my other/previous approach shoes (La Sportiva Cirque Pro, Montrail CTC, Merrell Jam).
I was attracted to how light yet cushiony they were.

Serving up a little bit of rock shoe, a touch of running shoe, and a pinch of hiking boot, the Garmont Women's Sticky Cat Hiking Shoe is a solid choice for the person who gravitates to rock, whether it's slickrock rambling, casual bouldering, or approaching the biggest of big walls. A sticky Vibram Crossover outsole provides traction on dirt trails or exposured ridgelines, and a performance lace-to-toe fit offers the sensitivity necessary for making confident 5th class moves. A dual durometer EVA midsole is another contributor to the shoe's fabulous sensitivity, placing firmer material underneath the forefoot for better feel on rock and softer material beneath the heel for cushioning that feels like a road running shoe. The Garmont Sticky Cat Hiking Shoe for women does not shy away from hauling heavy loads of climbing hardware. A firm EVA protection plate underneath the midfoot zone supports and stabilizes the extra load on the feet, making long marches back to the car a much more pleasant experience, especially after peeling off your shrink-wrap tight rock shoes. And to further care for the feet, a mesh upper with quick dry lining provides a low moisture interior environment that reduces the possibility of blisters and odor build-up.
