Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

The M5s fit true to size and don't stretch much, they should fit well out of the box. Great for long climbing sessions when you don't want to take your shoes off after every climb. The rubber is stiff and durable, I've been climbing in my M5s regularly for 2+ months and they aren't worn out at all. The toe box and heel both fit great and perform well while smearing and stemming on nothing. I also climb in the Sharks and the one time I prefer my Sharks over the M5s is when trying to heel hook on very small holds. The extra rubber on the Sharks makes it possible to heel hook on crimps and edges, whereas the M5 heel works better on larger holds or just hooking against the wall.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Sharks were initially painful, but broke in quickly (about two climbing sessions.) The shoe is more narrow than other Mad Rocks, which is perfect for me, and has a very aggressive toe and heel. Awesome performance in overhangs and roofs - heel hooks stick to anything in these!

I've been climbing in these shoes since September, and the rubber is still in great shape. They have performed well both bouldering and sport climbing, but are not a very down turned shoe. Fit for me is a size and a half smaller than street shoes. Very comfortable after breaking in the Hemp Lining, which takes a few days of climbing. Great shoe!
