5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Size Purchased: 38.5

Initially I was not sold on this shoe. I bought it smaller than my street size (got the equivalent to a size 7 1/3 when I wear an 8) so I could have a more aggressive fit. Unfortunately, after taking them climbing my feet were in agony, and looking at other reviews I was afraid the shoe wouldn't stretch enough. However, after pushing through the pain for a few sessions I can say I'm really happy with these shoes. They give me a surer footing than my other pair (5.10 Siren, which I love but are not at all aggressive), and, while not comfy, are a bearable discomfort for the added aggressiveness.

These are still an intermediate shoe, so not recommended if you want a really aggressive shoe. But for me (5.7 outdoors, 5.10 and starting on 5.11 more in the gym) they're perfect.

I got these boots for my backcountry set-up and finally used them (inbounds at Snowbird). It's a super light boot but is still stiff; coming from using the Fischer Trinity (a really stiff race-type boot) I was pleased by the flex index being nice and high. My only issue with these boots is the fact that the tongues punched into my shins and left bruises. It made skiing them fairly painful, especially when I hit the crud wrong. Since they're a complete therma-fit liner I'm hoping a few small tweaks will sort this out because these boots are great.
