Rock on! Great Shoe
I'm an intermediate level climber and got these to use in the gym mostly though I occasionally venture outdoors. They are very stiff which helps 'em hold on any little edge, but I guess they wouldn't be the best out there if you have to do a lot of smearing. Haven't any problems with slipping thus far though. I've been using them 3 times a week in the gym for about 4 months and they have shown very minimal signs of wear and tear. These run slightly small, but I still wear the same size as my street shoes. Even though they have leather uppers I haven't noticed much stretch.
