I'm looking into these. Anyone know how they compare to the Verdes? It sounds like they're better for bouldering.
They're definitely more downturned than the Verdes, and they'll have a more agressive fit as well. Much better for bouldering, not as good for long days on big walls.
As Angus said, these shoes are very downturned. They are a slim, sleek, and low profile ankle shoes. I went the same size as my street shoe and found the break in time to be very painful. These shoes were meant to crush hard overhung routes/boulders.
I have both the verdes and the quantums and LOVE both. the quantums are more downturned and are a much more low volume shoe. I use the quantums for hard sport climbing and the verdes for multipitch routes.
