I've had two pairs of Boosters (and resoled em - I like these shoes a LOT) and would NOT recommend them for crack climbing. These get pretty tough on my feet on multi-pitch sport and I try not to wear them for that. Not an expert on crack, but I think these are best for bouldering and aggressive sport routes.

Aggressive? yes and all the wonderful precision that goes with it, but since the 4mm rubber stops just below the ball of your foot, easy to open up and smear.

Comfortable!! Very snug tight fit, but good padding under the leather on the top of the shoe, so while responsive and tight, not pinching. even after a 4 pitch trad day my dogs weren't barking too bad.

As far as being technical, I prefer bouldering (though leading sport and trad is a blast also) and these crush.

Nothing bad to say, except I'm nervous on getting them re-soled do to the weird rubber configuration, but worth it to have such a comfortable, smearable super aggressive shoe.
