Not anything too special, but they get the job done well. They stay true to their size and the rubber is decent.

I'd say they're awesome for a first timer or someone on a tight budget. They're certainly not rental shoes, but they don't offer much on anything steep.

I snagged these things during a summer sale for ~$60 and it was worth the impulse buy. I didn't size down as aggressively as I did with my LS Solutions / LS Pythons - but these aren't really the shoes that I wanted to be rolling all over the floor trying to pull past my heel. Super comfy, nice rubber!

Pros
- Comfortable
- Reasonable sizing
- Great for longer climbs
- Sensitive

Cons
- Not aggressive if you're looking for that type of shoe
- Wouldn't dare to do a dicey heel hook in these

Some observations: They tend to turn your feet red and the tabs on the back of the heel are oddly placed - which you'll notice when you try to slip them on.

I fell in love with the LS Pythons right away and pre ordered them as soon as I could. In some ways, I prefer these over the Solutions. While they aren't as aggressive as the Solution, they're still very downturned and offer a lot considering they're pretty much a slipper with a velcro strap. The Pythons make up for where I think the Solutions lack.

Pros:
- They're agressive, but much more comfortable than the Solutions
- Sensitive toe and heel

Cons:
- Sizing is different. They tend to stretch more than my other pairs, so I'd recommend going a 1/2 size smaller than what you're planning on.
- Due to the nature of the shoe, there tends to be air in the shoe; they don't hold on tight to my feet as much as I'd like them to.

Overall, for the price and quality, the shoe is definitely a good buy. I can't say it is any better or worse than the Solution... but it's better in different ways, and worse in other ways!

Amazing shoe. Super aggressive, good rubber, and they look awesome. I go about 2.5 sizes down from my street shoe and although they're a snug fit, I got used to it fast. One tip: be careful when putting the shoes on. The Fast Closure System puts a lot of wear an tear on the strap and it's been known to break after fastening them so much.

Pros:
No air in the shoe while wearing them, durable, super aggressive heel and toe box.

Cons:
I feel there is a lot of rubber between my foot and the all which makes sensitive footwork somewhat of a challenge.
