This is my 4th pair of Ace's are would fully recommend them for trad. The sole is super stiff and supportive for long multi pitch climbs. They also edge really well and the leather construction is highly durable for cracks and chimenys. The canvas lining keeps the odor down and wicks well. These do stretch quite a bit though so would suggest sizing down a half to full size.
Other than the rubber, these shoes are what I am looking for. I want to size them comfortably and from what I understand, to get that comfort, I should go with my street show size which is a 10. What size would be recommended for long trad routes?
Arin, the 10 should be comfortable on long trad routes, after you have broken them in. I will work with you directly, to make sure you find the right shoe. So, feel free to reach out to me directly.
