Climbing Magazine's review on Millet Yalla/Myo

The following review was in Climbing Magazine's May 2012 issue: I manhandle brand-new rock shoes before wearing them: Caress, squeeze, and even smell ‘em. When I first groped the high performance lace-up called the Millet Yalla (or the Myo, for those who prefer velcro), I balked at their downturned yet very stiff toe-two characteristics rarely seen in the same toe box. I was skeptical. But once I started climbing, I was amazed at how well the stiff-but-grabby combo worked. On vertical faces, I stood on tiny edges with confidence; on steeper-than-45 degree terrain, I could grab and hook features almost as well as if I were wearing a slipper. The rigid forefoot broke in after just a few pitches, softening just enough to offer both support and sensitivity. And for me and my wide, hairy feet, they fit perfectly: tight yet comfortable. The synthetic upper – lined only in the toebox – feels like soft leather, yet holds its shape over time. The Yalla/Myo is one of the few bouldering and sport climbing shoes that truly masters a wide variety of climbing styles
