telescorpio wrote a review of Scarpa Marathon Rock Climbing Shoe on March 30, 2005
They are what they say they are:
very comfortable all-around shoe. The somewhat stiff sole will not wrap around holds on overhanging routes in the gym, but does edge well on your way from one placement to the next. Good randing provides a secure heel fit. The padded tongue and heel also help to focus on the climbing and rather than foot pain. So good so far, I expect to get a lot of use out of them. Note: shoes run smaller than what the Scarpa sizing chart suggests.
