First and foremost, the Mantra is a board lasted shoe. It's similar in feel to the old boreal ace; though with the Mantra, I don't get any hotspots, and can wear them all day long. The lacing takes a while to dial in, as there are a lot of lace holes, but once they are dialed in, they fit like a glove. I used them in Yosemite extensively. No pain in the metatarsals while jamming my foot in repeatedly. Highly recommend for your new trad shoe!

I'm not a big crack climber, so when a buddy invited me to Yosemite for a week, I figured I needed an alternative to my down turned bouldering shoes. The Mantras were just the ticket. I jammed to my hearts content. No pain, at all. Slab climbing in Tuolumne was a dream, the rubber is super sticky. I can't wait to take them to the creek this spring.

I tried on the Orange and the Blue fit of the Acro. The orange was a bit too wide for me. The blue is really for a narrower foot. I've been wearing down turned aggressive shoes for years, and the Acro is the only one that I feel like doesn't limit my climbing ability. It just fits, and feels like they put the time into designing it properly. My miura VS now sit in my closet.
