Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Materials: Suede upper, High friction Vibram rubber sole
Use: Gym, Sport, and Bouldering
Break-in Period: Two weeks
Price Paid: $85

These have become an all around good shoe for me so far. I am still a beginner and they are great for smearing, and toeing in on some small jibs in the gym and staying in cracks and rails out in the boulderfields.

The only thing that is lacking is on overhung routes I have had a little trouble staying on. This may not be the shoe, but more me still being a beginner. They have proven theirselves as a very comfortable shoe and a great investment in starting out climbing. I would recommend these to anybody that is new to the sport, and any one that wants to have a comfortable shoe for long sessions.

Enjoy yourself and have fun being who you are!
