Peter A. wrote a review of La Sportiva Tarantula FriXion RS Climbing Shoe - Men's on July 8, 2011
I haven't been climbing long and tried on a couple different shoes before I settled on the Tarantula for my first shoe. Since then, I've climbed several times - top roping, leading, and bouldering - and it hasn't failed me yet. I found the sizes to be a little larger than expected based on those I'd tried on before I ordered, but, all in all, a great purchase for my first climbing shoe. The heel fits snugly without pinching and the point isn't so extreme as to cause my toes to form an uncomfortable "fist".
