User Review: Montrail Wasabi
Use: sport climbing
Break-in Period: 1 week
Weight: 175 lbs
Price Paid: $45
The Wasabi is a great shoe -- very comfortable and the rubber is pretty sticky. I've been climbing for 5 or 6 years and have worn Boreal, Montrail, and some FiveTens. These are by far the most comfortable pair I've worn while still managing to fit fairly tight.
The durability of the rubber isn't too great. These definitely aren't gym shoes. I use a pair of old Zealots for that. But on difficult outdoor routes, especially ones that I'm trying to work, these shoes are great.
Buy them a bit small, they tend to stretch, especially after you bake them in the oven.
