I bought this shoe when I first started getting into climbing. For not knowing too much how the fit was supposed to be, I was really happy with how my feet felt after my first climbs.
At first I was only using them at indoor rock gyms but they proved to hold up outdoors as well. They didn't seem to need much time to be broken in - but instead were a great feel right out of the box. The velcro is comfortable and quick - especially when you're ready to get those bad boys off at the end of a climbing session. Still haven't tested them on more than beginner to intermediate outdoor climbs.
I agree with the consensus of great beginner shoe.
