I have a wider women's foot, this shoe fits my forefoot…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $145

Summary

I have a wider women's foot, this shoe fits my forefoot like a second skin. The edging is tremendous in the steeps. Due to the downturned sole, smearing is not as effective on friction. They aren't an all day wear, but after the break from belaying, I can put them on again without concern. The heel cup fits snugly. I wear the same as my street shoe.

Pros

  • Edging
  • Wider toebox
  • Sticky soles

Cons

  • Duration of time to mold to feet

I have a wider women's foot and this shoe fits my forefoot like a second skin. Not without a lengthy break-in period. It requires wearing them for a pitch, then taking them off for belay, then wearing again. They're now my favorites.

They aren't an all day wear, but they are great when the conditions are right. Due to the downturned sole, smearing is not effective on friction. The edging is tremendous in the steeps. The heel cup fits snugly and the lacing allows a custom fit. I wear the same as my street shoe.

It's a great shoe; I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little wider women's shoe than most that is available.
