Great steep sport/crack shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had these shoes for a few months and they have yet to disappoint me. They grip sandstone and granite well and the tongue has just enough padding to make crack climbing pleasant.

I did need to return my first pair of these shoes when the rubber toecap delaminated in the first week while jamming my toe in a roof crack. The next pair dominated the same route without any issue. Also be aware that for the first few days climbing these the dye will run and your feet will be fire engine red.
