A gnarly shoe for small holds and overhangs. Lots of feel on the toe and edge, and the strap system secures the shoe well. Only issue is sizing, because the shoe is so downturned your foot has to conform for a proper fit, this makes the shoes not so comfortable. For the first ten minutes before the shoes warm up the shoes hurt at the big toe knuckle because the toe is forced downward into the tip. Also after about an hour of climbing the big toe becomes sore. My solution is to take them off after each problem attempt and have a rest. That's why these are bouldering shoes. True to form, true to function. Oh, and Zappos rocks!

Shoe fits a full size smaller. I typically wear a size 10 shoe and I ordered size 42, I also tried the 41.5. Went with the 42's because the 41.5 were too narrow. If you have a narrow to average size foot you can get away with the 41.5. Super easy to get in and out of takes literally 4 seconds to get out and 3 to get in...I timed myself. This shoe is not for all day all around climbing b/c your feet will hurt after about an hour or so. Zappos shipping was great and super fast but the shoe glue had some discoloration around where the black rubber meets the white...the shoes looked like second hand which was very disappointing considering the price of this shoe.

Amazing bouldering shoe! been using these for a few months now and they have let me improve my game by an enormous amount. Super comfy. I recommend getting these shoes a size smaller than your usual shoes. feels natural to the foot and are super sticky. Definitely recommend these!

Quite possibly the best bouldering/sport climbing shoe on the market. Fits true right out of the box. If you size them like a slipper, you will never have an issue with the closure system.

Brands I'd also recommend: Organic Climbing, Trango, Ledge Pants
