I really like these shoes! Light and grippy.

I bought these for the gym and to carry in my backpack to wear in basecamp. And after a year of use, I am still happy with my purchase. They work great as bouldering shoes around camp too!

The fit is great! Wraps my foot like a glove.

For such a minimal shoe, they're quite comfortable... even on a rocky Sierra trail.

They don't have much support, so you better have strong kankles.

They're not water resistant, however, they dry crazy fast! Especially if you're wearing some good socks, like Wrightsocks Coolmesh II.

The traction on these shoes are quite well. Even on wet granite.

I will get another pair of these once these have worn out. They take up very little space in my backpack and seem to hold up well to my abuse.
