paul sandukiswrote a review of Butora Mantra Climbing Shoe - Tight Fit on April 26, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
I’ve been climbing in the tight fit mantras from Butora for about 9 months now. A friend turned me onto the brand and when I saw that they offered a board lasted shoe, I was sold. I quickly ripped these puppies out of their cardboard birthing chamber and took them for a spin in the granite trial by fire known as J-Tree. After a few days of shoving them in cheese grater cracks I knew I’d found my next lover. Out to the trash can went the rest of the ladies and with Sheila, my burnt orange mantras, I went riding into the desert wilds in search of piles of choss ridden crack and sketchy granite slabs. Seriously. If you like crack, you’ll love these shoes.
