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!
