Great all rounder

I've used it several times
True to size

Loving the new Geshido Lace. Fit is great and sized it the same as my street shoe size. Could have gone down a 1/2 size if I wanted it for bouldering/gym shoe. But street shoe size, it's comfortable and I can keep it on for multi-pitch and long routes. Leather upper melted to my foot shape pretty quickly and it's really comfy but still high performance a shoe.

Master of None

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size

Let's start off with the good news: this shoe is a good fit for people with a wide forefoot and narrow heel looking for an asymmetrical shoe that doesn't bend the big toe distally. Street shoe size is was spot on for a snug but not uncomfortable fit. I am glad to see companies catering more for the wide forefoot/narrow heel foot shape since most shoes on the market pander to a narrow, Egyptian style foot shape. Now to the execution: this shoe utterly fails at being comfortable and supportive on multipitch applications for two reasons. 1. It is not nearly stiff or suppotive enough. The toes turn upwards significantly when standing on an edge. 2. Upward deformation of the toes tensions the slingshot rand, clamping down on the base of the Achilles tendon, causing instant discomfort to those suffering from bursitis. If this shoe were significantly stiffer, used a firmer rubber compound, and used an underfoot active randing tensioning system to resist upward deformation of the toes, it would get 5 stars. However, it is useless and painful for its intended application. There are plenty of great, softer, downturned shoes for overhung climbing. By trying to be good at everything, this shoe ends up bring good at nothing. Look elsewhere for a stiff, cambered edging shoe.
