Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
All around great climbing shoe. Slightly more aggressive than my mythos, which are also very good. Let's get things straight here, I'm no pro climber, and I'm not sending fallen arches anytime soon or probably ever for that matter. I do lead 5.9 trad and follow into the 10's so that's where I'm coming from. I'm impressed with the edging, smearing, comfort, and crack ability of these shoes. It's my go to in lcc, loved them in the gunks, and got on some pretty polished routes in Boulder canyon where they still smeared pretty nicely. Another feature I really like is the higher profile, not as many cuts around my ankles these days. I generally wear an 8/8.5 in street shoes. I wear a 40.5 in both these the mythos, and the Boulder x approach shoes I have. they stretch nicely after a few days and are very comfortable on long routes or multi pitch climbs. Great on granite and quartzite but haven't jammed them into any sandstone yet. Still stoked on them and would recommend them for sure.
