This shoe was my first upgrade to a more aggressive shoe. I love it. I wore a 37 in the 5-10 Gambits and went with the 35 in the Miura VS. This is a different shoe compared to the lace-up version and I would recommend trying on both to see which works for you. There is no dead space in this low volume shoe. The heel fits like a suction cup, and doesn't painfully dig in my Achilles tendon like some other shoes tend to do. The velcro is great for easy on-off, which is a plus during the painful break in process. The rubber is super sticky and the toe box definitely raised my confidence with balancing on jibs. Smearing is a little tough due to the downturn of the shoe, though it may improve with time. I will definitely buy a second pair once I wear this set down. It took about 2-3 weeks to break in the shoe, with gym climbing 2-3x/week.
