"Surprisingly comfortable and easy to break in"
These are my second pair of climbing shoes, the first being the Scarpa Force. I think I downsized about a size and a half US. Every time I put them on, I have this idea in my head that it's gonna be a chore. But once I start yanking on the tabs it feels like a nice suction that pulls my foot in. By no means do I want to wear them all day without a few breaks, but they feel great compared to my expectations for an aggressive shoe. The colors are also fun!
I wear a street shoe size 7, downsized 1 full size-Euro 37. Fresh out of the box I thought I was going to have to return-it took me 10 minutes to put each shoe on.I could wear them for about 25 sec before ripping them off. After 4 weeks of break in, I started to wear these for regular climbing sessions. They have molded perfectly to my feet! I have used them mostly for bouldering with the intent to use them ultimately for sport. I had the opportunity to try them at Squamish and couldn't have been happier with their performance! Negatives: the break in period was a tease! but worth it. Also, the rubber on the inside of the shoe can cause some major blisters on the tops of your toes.
