Great intermediate shoe

These were my second pair of climbing shoes and the laceup fit was fairly comfortable... if you can call a climbing shoe comfortable. They really fit my narrow feet like a glove. For sport climbing I prefer to have a pair of shoes I don't have to rip off every time I get off the wall, and these really hit the sweet spot of good performance without constantly aching feet. This is not an aggressively shaped shoe, and I think it becomes apparent once you are getting past about 5.10c or maybe a V4. I found myself wanting something with a bit more control on the toe. Durability is pretty good.
