An amazing shoe.
Just took these puppies out for a ride around the block and what a revelation! These guys edge on nothing. I must say, they could have done a little improvement on the heel though. It comes up nice and high and tight on the back, but I'm surprised Sportiva hasn't started giving a little more texture to the back of their shoes like every other company. A little nubbin to catch on the rock would make all the difference for bouldering! All in all though, the best fitting shoe I've put on in along time, and lace up is a no go for me. Also, FYI, I wear a 5 1/2 street shoe and ordered a 33.5 and feel like I should have done a 33. Definitely not sloppy but I think the smaller size would have served me better after break in.
