Review by tnclimber on Dec. 20, 2007
Allows you to get incredible power off your big toe. Toe hooks in steep overhangs are a breeze, standing on tiny holds is made easy, and the shape of the shoe allows for ultra presicion footwork. Especially good, as it says in the description, for short technical sport routes and bouldering.
These shoes are not for everyone. The heel runs a little loose, so in order to get the right size, you must size down a lot. I wear a Street 43.5, a 42.5 in the La Sportiva Miura, and settled on a 41.5 in these. There is a two week break in period that can be absoluetly excrutiating. Warning: your feet will hurt the first 5 or 6 climbs. You will be pulling them off as you come down the route. These shoes are so aggressive you can't even walk around in them. Once your feet have adjusted, and the shoe has stretched slightly, you will really enjoy this shoe. Don't expect this one to be the only pair in your bag. I wouldn't use them on lengthy sport routes, or multi pitch, unless your feet are naturally shaped like bird talons.

awesome for climbing in caves and overhangs. deep heel pocket for great heel hooks.
the breaking in process is excruciating. you have to get them smaller than usual because the heel is so aggressive

vibram xs grip and fit. the fit sucks your foot to the toe box for power just like the solutions
heel is slightly too big. might be fine for some people though.
my favorite shoe so far. solutions are pretty close to this shoe
