I got my first pair of the new demons two years ago when the new style had just come out. I won them in a climbing competiton. I had them in 9.5 and it was the best shoe ive had yet. Sadly to say I just busted through the toe just this week bouldering. I had a feeling this was coming so I bought another pair last year and havent worn them. I love these shoes, except the second pair the velcro laces are way too long. The rubber is really nice and the shoe holds up to abrasion really well. the major stress points inst on the toe bottom near your big toe, but just above your toe. The rubber is just now starting to peel away from the midsole, so i think ill get them resoled. My old ones that i won fit better than the new ones i just broke in. This is a overhang boulder and sport climbing shoe. Especially for slighty overhung to big overhangs. Great for edging and snaggin small foot placements. heel cup is wonderful and you can heel things all day long with it. the heel is comfortable where it needs to be. This is a really good shoe. I only wish my new ones had a tighter feel on the velcro, the laces are just too long to make the shoe fit tight. Overall, these shoes are great for 10's and 11's on a slight overhang and overhanging boulder problems or anything else you want to put it throguh.
