Nicholas P.wrote a review of Butora Mantra Climbing Shoe - Tight Fit on May 9, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
This is the stiffest shoe I have ever worn.... but the advantages are unbelievable. I can stand on dime edges with barley any foot fatigue and the little pads in the toe box make it down right comfy to foot jam. I look forward to testing it out at Smith Rock and on some granite cracks this summer. The rubber is great, very sticky and hard enough to hold the edge. Moving from a soft sport shoe to this bad boy takes a couple pitches of practice but after a that it's just magic how well they feel and climb.
I am a 9.5 street shoe and I felt a size 10 was perfect. It seems weird to upsize, but it works.
