Had these for over a year now and (for the most part) they're still sturdy. I wear them probably 4 times a week and take them to the crag probably once a month. great shoe for slabs or face climbs, top-rope, multi-pitch, smearing and all day use.Weakness: overhang, really small outdoor edges (that's probably user error not the shoe). Not very aggressive but INCREDIBLY comfortable comparable to all other shoes. buy half size small they STRETCH ALOT. But the lace up system will make sure it still fits like a glove. P.S. I wear mine alot but the inside edge of the sole has started to come apart, so... that's is one of the first things to go.
