After knowing i wouldnt be home for UPS the second day after ordering these (you're so quick, its #goatworthy), i checked my shipping status (out for delivery) on my drive home, saw a UPS truck, they didnt have my package but sent me on a hunt for the truck that did and after pulling up in front of her and waving my arms, ahhh there was my box with TC Pros in it!
Climbed in them for 3 pitches, day of, out of the box. getting used to the edge for trad, coming from mythos. love the edge! you can stand on these-learning to trust it. and got to climb the most splitter crack at my local crag in them, they ROCK. these shoes are the TRUTH. i bought them in the same size as my mythos, due to my heel (achilles bursitis occasional) and the usual aggressive tightness of slingshot rands on shoes. im still early in my climbing career, and considering i only have one body, but can buy many a shoe, if necessary, i ordered for comfort (and cuz backcountry didnt have 37.5 only 37-i thought would be too small).
they crack climb like a dream. my feet had been getting beat up this week from laps on my favorite splitter, no pain in these on the 3rd day of laps(1st day in the shoes).
will update as the time goes by. I LOVE THESE SHOES.
the tongue is the only weird thing, kinda curly, just put your shoes on mindfully, and it'll all work out...
and hey Tommy, is coming to a crag near us this weekend, how fitting.
oh i almost forgot, some people said they weren't great for smearing, i found them to be fine out of the box, so far..
