Excellent shoe - size up!

This is an excellent shoe! I would not call it the best aggressive climbing shoe out there, nor would I say Evolve Trax is the best rubber on the Market; however, this is an excellently designed shoe that is my workhorse in the gym.

The rubber is thick, I have been wearing it 3+ days per week in the gym for the past 2 months and have not had any signs of needing to resole and I can trust these shoes on dime edges and the heel is solid for overhanging routes.

There is one caveat to this shoe, the sizing is not comparable to any other shoe you would buy. I have a 9.5 street shoe and size down 1-2 full sizes on all my climbing shoes; however, with this shoe, I purchased a 9.5 and I wish I had gone with a 10. The shoes will soften a bit, hence the reason I am still using them, but they do not stretch at all and instead of these forming to my foot, I feel like my foot has formed to the shoes.I also have mortons toe and this would not have been an issue with the 10's, but it took a few weeks before my feet got to the point they could tolerate the shoe.

Would I buy this shoe again, definitely! However, I would go with the 10.
