This is a great slip on shoe that performs well on slab and small edges. I prefer to wear this on long trad climbs and not so technical sport climbs. I would not recommend this on the steep stuff because the heal doesn't hold to well. Your foot can slip out when really cranking on a heel hook, unless you really size down then they become very uncomfortable, but your heel will stay in, so it's a trade off. Oh yea they definitely color your feet orange after wearing them, and it doesn't seem to go away even after months of wearing them.
