as the title says, these shoes are phenomenal. the edging on these shoes is unmatched. my foot hasnt slipped off the tinniest of all footholds since ive gotten these, and i can stand on just about anything while feeling completely secure, and confident. They are not the most downturned shoes, and lose a bit of aggressiveness after a few times in them, but still are great on overhangs. it has a nice pointy toe for digging deep into pockets. people say they are uncomfortable, but once you break them in, i think they are one of the more comfortable downturned shoes. smearing of course isnt all that great, but then again why would you expect such a downturned shoe to be good at smearing. And of course you cant go wrong with these shoes, as they have five tens stealth onyxx rubber, which i believe is the best rubber out there. i wear a 10.5 street shoe, and went with a 9.5 in these. the first couple days were pretty agonizing, but after a while they were quite comfortable, and the performance fit is well worth it. my only concern is that i am beginning to see glue from where the rubber toe cap was. No matter what level of climber you are, This shoe will easily improve your climbing.
