This shoe has rocked my world (pun!). I have had them for a few months and love them. The size fits me very well, and the aggressive downturn improved my climbing on steep terrain. Another thing is the with the more pointed toe, I've become much more precise with my footwork. Another thing that you'll notice is that when you're in the gym, getting your feet all sweaty and nasty, you can just push down your toes into the bottom of the shoe and air will rush in, cooling down and refreshing your foot. This is the best shoe on the planet, so go out and get yourself a pair. Seriously.
