I so much wanted these shoes to be Five Ten's answer to La Sportiva's Solutions, but they are just too different. For my foot, out of the box, they were unbearably tight, but still somehow felt loose in the toe box. And, out of the box, the sole extends a bit out from the rand, making it hard to get my weight precisely over my toe; on tiny edges, the shoe would roll a bit. These problems go away when the shoes are properly broken in, which I did by wearing them in the gym for several weeks. You absolutely can't beat this rubber. And the craftsmanship (so far for me) seems really solid. One criticism is getting these on--the elastic that goes over the top of your foot is pretty tight, and lacks a thumb loop, so it's really hard to get on, especially when my foot is damp or sweaty. Another thing to watch for...for my feet, I size Solutions at 43. For the Crawe, the 45.3 size seems tight.
