Review by roytse on Aug. 10, 2008
Super sticky awesome rubber. Fitment was a 1/2 size too big. Neoprene upper lining is extremely comfortable.
Tends to stretch a bit after use.

Excellent sensitivity on precise footwork.
Durable; Ive had my solutions for close to a year and they are finally starting to break down; and Im climbing 3 days a week on V6s and mid 5.12s. Theyve held up better than I expected to the abuse Ive put them through

ridiculously comfortable, great for aggressive climbing
not great for flat walls, poor edging, webbing on straps broke after only a month and half

Review by MontanaMike on May. 28, 2010
Great aggressive shoe, perfect for steep limestone pockets. The heel and toe hooks are phenomenal. They are very comfortable and quick to get on.
These shoes fall apart fast. The toe rand peeled off in only a month, held on only a bit longer with super glue. The edge on this shoe rounded out fast as well, even out of the box the edging was a bit poor.
All shoes are different. Buy a pair that fit your style. Suggesting alternatives just isn't possible.

Comfortable. Aggressive. Bite into holds like nothing else. Great on o/hangs + bouldery routes. Great on hard slab and edging on face too. Folks downturned shoes DO work on slabs if you know what you're doing. Buy them - you will be impressed.

Amazing fit, P3 platform great for sensitivity, comfort, and performance.
Kinda ugly, the colors are played out! Make them Green and blue!

I LOVE these shoes. Heel hooks aren't painful like with many other shoes and the shoe actually stays on! You stick to almost anything with the Vibram rubber and toe hooks only get better with time if you bend the tip of your shoes after climbing in them for the day. I've had mine for about 7 months and they are still in EXCELLENT condition and haven't stretched much at all. Don't jerk the strap and it will last you longer than the rubber.
I have nothing bad to say abouth them. They aren't good for edging but that's because they are very agressive shoes for overhangs, not slabs.

Review by mfoscadal on Jun. 25, 2011
The most powerful shoe I have ever worn; the P3 platform is incredible. Size them small, though, as you should not have to crank the strap down.

Very comfortable, despite aggressive downturn/asymmetric toe profile. Best shoe i've ever used very high performance
Heel = Horrible for heel hooking
