Great starter shoe
These are the first pair of shoes I ever had and I would say they are great to start with. They have nice grip and a pretty good toe. I was not able to stand very long on the really small chips, but they aren't super aggressive shoes so that is understandable. The rubber is pretty stiff, so the sensitivity isn't very high. I would say these are good shoes for the gym or possible crack climbing. I had the toe blow out on the left shoe recently, but I think that can be attributed to poor footwork and random chance. La Sportiva rubber is usually really good. Bottom line, these are great all day shoes that can be used for a variety of climbs. They are not superb for any one type of climbing, but they are definitely good.
