Familiarity: I've used it several times

Upon opening the box, I was visually pleased with how the shoe looked. They were difficult to put on the first 4-5 times, but after the initial break in process, they are the bomb. Once you figure out the subtleties of putting the shoe on, its a piece of cake.

I have been a devoted Demon user, but I feel this shoe does everything the demon does, and it does some things better. The ridge on the heel makes hooking smaller edges very secure, and I have not noticed a decrease in performance with hooking larger - smooth slopers.

I have used them on techy vertical routes, and on steep terrain where toe and heel hooks, bicycles are mandatory. I have comfort and stability on the smallest of edges.

I was really psyched to have more rubber on top of the shoe under my big toe. There is a problem at Hueco that involves a painful left toe hook, and I would love to go back and try that problem with the SHARKS.

The only test I have not done is on real rock. All of my testing was indoors.

Great shoe!!!!

THE CONS--my toes become very sensitive after multiple times of taking shoe on and off during the break in period. After a couple of weeks that is not an issue.

The heel is a little to stiff really feel insecure /sloping heel hooks.

THE PROS-- They feel great out of the box. I can take a brand new pair straight to my project without worry of breaking them in first.

Overall, great stability for bicycles, toe/heel hooks for steep terrain of Priest Draw.

They edge on the smallest crystals and dimes from Hueco to Leavenworth.

Great power on steep terrain from the downturned toe box.

Above all, a comfortable shoe for the long training days in the gym.
