5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: 11.5

My use: Indoor bouldering, indoor and outdoor sport primarily 5.9 - 5.12. Have owned them for ~2 months.

Fit: I disagree with most commenters that these run small, I find them true to size. I wear size 11.5-12EE (wide) street shoes. Bought these 11.5 and they are tight but comfortable enough for single pitches without issue. I'm not sure why you'd want a shoe this aggressive to be loose.

Pros:
-Super sensitive, tacky soft rubber. These are the softest and most sensitive shoes I have owned.
-Reasonably Comfortable. These shoes feel like a very tight set of socks. My toes get cramped if I try to leave them on, but for single pitches I don't have a problem.
-Craftsmanship seems very good
-Will be getting another pair when these wear out.
-These toe into small holds like a dream

Cons
_-No real complaints, a few comments:
-You don't want these anywhere near a slab, way too aggressive.
-Softness can mean uncomfortable for long routes, or less than vertical routes.
-While the craftsmanship is quite good, with metal buckles and good stitching, the softness makes me think they wont be the longest lasting shoe.

Get them!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6'
Weight: 195 lbs
Size Purchased: 11.5

My use: Indoor bouldering, indoor and outdoor sport primarily 5.9 - 5.12. Have owned them for 4-5 months.

Fit: I wear size 12EE (wide) street shoes. Bought these 11.5 and they are comfortable. For a more aggressive fit I could have gone down half a size but I rarely feel like I pop off the wall because of loose shoes. These "suck" onto my foot, and the heel holds very well.

Pros:
-Stiff rubber means these edge very well
-Durable, edge is holding after months of climbing 4-6 days a week
-Comfortable. I usually take them of between climbs, but I could probably keep them on for over an hour without murdering my feet.
-I feel these heel/toe-hook better than my Shamans
-Craftsmanship seems very good

Cons
-Very stiff, these don't have nearly the sensitivity as my Shamans
-Rubber is not super sticky. I will probably stop using these indoors because they just don't stick well to plastic. Less of an issue on rock.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6'
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: L

I made the stupid decision to buy this without reading the reviews.

If you are a triangle, or perhaps some sort of parallelogram, then I highly recommend this sweatshirt. The materials are nice, zipper seems good, and it will fit your outrageously-wide-at-the-bottomm-narrow-up-top shape.

If you are infact a human being this won't fit you.

Returning.
