Comfortable, classic, proven shoes. Extremely durable leather and great design.
I picked these up as my second pair of climbing shoes. They are a great all around shoe. I mostly vertical and slightly overhanging walls and these perform as expected.
I went down 2 sizes from my street shoes - U.S. 11 to a U.S. 9. After almost one year, they are extremely comfortable and have not stretched too much. These lace up like boat shoes. Even if they do continue to stretch, the design of the lacing system keeps the heel nice and snug.
I have worn these almost one year of solid climbing, 2-3 days per week and am about ready for the first re-sole. They have held up extremely well. I climb with people who have resoled these 5-7 times and the shoes are still going strong.
I expect these shoes to last me many years.
