Having had a lot of success fitting the Scarpa Instinct VS, but looking for a shoe which could smear more capably, and had more support for longer, less overhung climbs, I was interested to give these a shot. The shoe is sized very similarly to the instinct (I wear a 43.5 in the instinct vs for bouldering, and I ordered a 44 in these for all around use), and is definitely more comfortable. As a result, it doesn't have as much of that vacuum like fit that the instinct has, but that's to be expected for a more comfortable shoe. For bouldering it is slightly less capable, but more than makes up for this with its versatility. On slabs, you can get a lot of rubber down on the rock, so friction smears and very marginal feet feel quite solid. They aren't particularly stiff, maybe as stiff as the Instinct VS, so they sacrifice some hard edging ability in exchange for gaining some smearing confidence. A friend got the la sportiva otaki, and they are noticeably stiffer, so likely better for edging. I would highly recommend it to anyone who tends to fit well in Scarpa shoes (i.e. wide forefoot, lower volume heel), and maybe has trouble getting proper fit from narrower brands like sportiva.
Update: I've worn these for maybe a total of 20 days outdoors, and on a recent trip I was pulling the right shoe on and I managed to tear the tongue out of the shoe. It looked like it had been sewn in with a loop or two of thread, however the other shoe seemed more substantially attached... The tongue itself is just a rectangle of padded fabric, so it only needed a strong tug to rip out. Thankfully neither the tongue nor the leather was damaged and I actually climbed the rest of the day with the tongue held in place by the laces. Bought a needle and thread and reattached it. Still annoying though, since the rest of the shoe seems so solidly constructed.
