I owned this shoe for a year. After a month, the rubber along the side of the big toe began to delaminate. Not long after, the sole began to delam in the heel as well.
The suede uppers were bomber and the shoes were comfortable for long approaches, but don't try to edge with these — the EVA is very thick in the toe. But all said, I paid $25 for them and I got what I paid for.

They smear as well as most climbing shoes and toe in to holds well. Medium width and volume. Tight in the ankle. If you hate having your ankle move around in most shoes then you will love these. Supportive insoles are a great addition.
Your friends will hate you when you send their project in your street shoes. Very durable soles for approach shoes. The leather wears a little quick, but for the money, well worth it.
