Review by mikey_hong on Jan. 20, 2011
great climbing shoe, very easy on and off, sticky soles, aggressive profile, narrow heel for men or women that have that problem with other shoes (i know a lot of guys who wear the women's katanas), i actually have two pair now... the first pair i even had resoled! great for bouldering and shorter sport or trad routes.
can't think of any bad points from my own personal experience given what they were made for. have done long days on multi-pitch trad routes, but would recommend a more comfortable lace up for something like that. get a little rank if you don't clean em with a deoderizing/antibacterial spray every so often, but that pretty much goes for any climbing shoe.
whatever fits you best, try before you buy!

easy to get on, very decent edges, heel fit me well, aggressive cut
wore for a month and only then (when too late to return) did they suddenly start feeling too small and pinching nerves in my toes

great fitting shoe if you have a small heel, very aggressive for heel hooks and tiny features, stayed fairly true to size.
definitely pinchy for long trad routes, i would recommend these for sport climbs and shorter trad, but a comfier pair for long multi-pitch.

These shoes are awesome! Didn't have the option of trying them on before purchase so I ordered two different sizes. I wear a women's 8 in Nike shoes, ended up settling on the 39.5 and they fit perfectly. Hope this helps!

fabulous! they run kind of big in the sizing though.

Review by melayton on Nov. 24, 2008
very aggressive toe makes its easy to get into small cracks
somewhat tight but i'm sure they'll stretch over time
