I purchased these shoes about a month and a half ago. And, I love them! I can really trust my feet on even tiny chips, and smear confidently, too. They have stretched out a bit, but still need to be taken off after each climb. I got them a size and a half smaller than my normal size. I would get them again, especially if I had some sort of discount! Also, I would maybe consider going a full 2 sizes down. Overall, great shoe.
