Brian Q.wrote a review of La Sportiva Mantis Climbing Shoe on February 16, 2011
Got this shoe at my local gym a month after i started in october. it was on sale for 60 and i had a $20 giftcard that i won. i would say 40 it a reasonable price for these shoes. 5.11s are my project routes now and i climb 5.10s pretty solid. these shoes are coming to the end of their use for me. the edges are not sharp enough to catch small footholds that i encounter. i am a size 12 street shoe and i bought a 10.5, it has streched to be too big for my feet. i have to tighten the straps to their limits to keep the shoe on during a heel hook and there is always a small pocket of air under my arch.
