Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this shoe. This was my second pair of climbing shoes. I've bouldered and sport climbed in them and am super happy with how they feel and perform. I prefer them for sport climbing and bought some more downturned shoes for bouldering . These edge well and the pointy toe is great for pockets and they are stiff enough to support me if it's just the end of that pointy toe on a tiny hold. I think they excel for technical climbs. I feel like I can do some fancy foot work when I need to with grace and confidence on a route while wearing these. They do take some breaking in (they are leather) but feel better and better as time goes on. Stretched some, but not a ton. More like they conformed to my feet. I have no desire to seek out a different shoe for sport climbing, I will happily use these for awhile. In case it helps, my street shoe size is 7 (sometimes 7.5) and I wear a 37 in these. The fit is tight but not crazy uncomfortable or anything once broken in. I wore out the toe in my first pair but was lucky enough to find a gently used pair of the same size at a second hand shop in Carbondale, CO. I feel like the sizing of this new pair is the same as the first pair of 37's I bought. Climb on, ladies!

I'm new to leading and I tried this on at a local shop. Fit was great, felt comfy to hang in, but the gear loops don't stick out at all. I tried clipping some draws to the loops and was catching them on the shirt I was wearing since the loops were pretty flush against me. Maybe it's just that I'm new to clipping, but nonetheless I didn't want my gear loops to make things any more difficult for me than it needs to be. Went with the Petzl Corax instead based on price point, fit and comfort.

This dress is pretty much exactly what I expected. Cute, flattering and versatile. I can wear it alone in the summer with flip flops, or with a cardigan and boots in the spring or fall. The rope straps are thick, but I think its a nice touch. And it seems like it would be easy to replace the rope with something else if you wanted to do that.

I've had my pair of these since 2005 and they are still going strong. I've showered in them in Asia, worn them to a wedding and rode my bike all over while wearing them (they are not the best for this, but my point is that they handle this type of wear and tear). They are cute, comfortable (for flip flops), versatile and just wonderful. Best $20 you'll ever spend on flip flops. Get them!
