Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am a hardcore review reader and took a chance with these shoes since they have mixed reviews. For reference, I wear anything from 35.5 to 37.5 in La Sportiva climbing shoes. I have a pair of trail running shoes that are 37.5. I would say my street shoe size is a 6.5. I ordered a 37.5 and 37 in these and both were too big. The 36.5 fit the best (I wear thin no-show socks with them). I climbed a flatiron in them and they stuck well and had good sensitivity on the rock. I mainly bought them for multi-pitch walk-offs and scrambling, however. The profile of them is pretty low; there isn't a lot of ankle stability, and there were some rocks that got in them, but I really liked how they performed. They felt like comfy climbing shoes. I wouldn't say they are super sturdy, so we will see how they hold up. But the packability and lightness of them appealed to me, and I'm glad I got them before my size sold out!
