These are quite a bit more aggressive than the elektras but they're not designed for extremely overhung terrain. They're a good all around shoe, extremely good at edging. Will really excel in the gym as well. They do not have a lot of feel because they are so stiff. This isn't necessarily a bad thing if you are confident in your footwork, but many times this works against beginners because they don't have the muscle memory to know exactly where their feet are. As far as progressing to more difficult terrain, there's not much that these shoes wouldn't work on. There's plenty of 5.14 climbers using these as their daily shoe. The edging power can build a lot of confidence. You can stand on anything comfortably with these.
I've owned about 12 pairs of shoes in the last 20 years and these are the only ones I had to size up, which I needed a half size larger than my street shoe. I would go with the same size as your elektras. They're not going to stretch a lot so what you have out of the box is pretty much what you're going to have down the road.
