...growing on me...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Size: I ordered my average number (10 US-43 Eu) and they fit perfectly in lenght, although is a 10.B so they are narrow... still confortable enough (for me).
Manufacturing: materials are awesome, other brands have dreams of this stuff. However, some seam are dubbed or too close together (just on the big toe's upper notch) and it hurts; I may resolve the problem with a cobbler anvil or I will wear them every day until they break in (the shoe, not my toes...).
Inner sole system: good especially if you find them too narrow you can remova a layer.
Lacing: awesome, like free climbing shoes.
Sole: feels like hiking boots
Weight: they feel a bit heavy.
Look: very good looking shoes.
Overall: great product for the money, need to be broken in, and make sure you don't have a super-wide foot. I was expecting a bit more from a pair of Italian shoes...

After a week the boots fit better, still a little funky feeling of wearing a rubber boot when walking; however, challanged the pair with a little bouldering and grip and feeling is fantastic. Overall...still growing on me...

Very much in love with them right now. I can use these shoes all year around in New England weather. The only concern is that the sole appears to wear quite rapidly but there is plenty of thread.
