I had a pair for a year and were great. They edge very well and don't stretch. They are synthetic, so they ended up stinking pretty bad. I had sized them too small on accident. After wearing holes in them, I switched to the La Sportiva TC Pros. I wear an 11.5 street shoe and the 44.5 TC Pros were nice and comfy. I ordered a new pair of Grandstones in the same size and they are a half size too small. So, I'm going to go up a 45. I'm going back to the Grandstones since I'm so used to the stickiness of the 5.10 Stealth rubber. I've become a diehard high top trad shoe guy now. My only complaint is that they stink.
