The shaman is a surprisingly aggressive shoe and yet you don't have to cram your foot into it. The knuckle box and the love bump make for a really snug fit. I bought my pair a half size bigger and it was still pretty tight, but since I'm using it as my performance shoe it's great.

These shoes, in my opinion, are "pretty good". I don't think they edge as well as Sportiva solutions and aren't quite soft enough to be a super sensitive slipper. Just my opinion, I use these for mid-grade all around climbing but can't give 5 stars.

Very comfortable shoe that climbs with precision and power. Great at back stepping and heel hooking. Needs a little break in time but it seems like all durable and precise shoes do.

Just wrote this review for the Rasta Shamans...obviously these are the exact same shoes, so I figured I'd post here. Wasn't sure what to expect. I had never had a pair of performance climbing shoes, with an aggressively down cambered toe. This was my first. Let me revise that. I'd tried some on, and they didn't fit. So I didn't buy them. And then I tried the Shaman. The Knucklebox fits my long toes perfectly. Even with my Morton's toe, this is the first asymmetrically lasted shoe (90% of climbing shoes) that fits my foot! And then the love bump is just a premolded part of the sole, but it makes such a difference for snug fit and feel. No void of space underneath my toes, they are ensconced snugly in rubber above and below. Heel is great, a little movement but secure enough that it'll never come off, no matter how sketchy the hook. Three velcro straps allow me to customize the fit greatly, if I was to want for something, it'd be some sort of way to reduce the heel volume for my less meaty feet. Asides from that magic adjuster, these shoes are above and beyond what I was expecting, and are worth every penny. And they don't look half bad, either :) I'm not so much into Rasta, so I call 'em my Rainbow shamans, or maybe Stoplight Shamans? Regardless, they're awesome. Fit is true, in the Demorto's I sized down 1 1/2 sizes to 10.5, here I stuck with a 12. Incidentally the shoes are the same length when I put them side by side. Once I get used to climbing with this much power and feel to my toe, I may end up sizing down to 11.5. We'll see. Hope this helps!
