These are far superior to most climbing shoes in the price range.
I've climbed in them before in the gym a few times when I forgot my shoes, and I was amazed at how well they stick. Great beginner shoe, especially if you're interested in bouldering. Plus, velcro is awesome.
Also, these shoes are magic. I'm not really sure how, but my friend has been climbing in a pair for about six months, and they still smell like they just came out of the box. Some sort of witch craft is clearly involved.
I have two other pair of lace-up 5-10's, and 9.5/42.5 fits perfect, but these run at least 1/2 size too small, say bye bye to 6.95 return shipping...
After a few weeks of breaking these shoes im am way stoked on the comfort and control. I went down one size. Great overall shoe
I have long (size 15), narrow, low-volume feet. I've noticed edging is more of an issue with these shoes than others I've owned. I also feel like the rubber is maybe not as grippy as it could be. I've had a couple of slips in the gym that surprised me. But, I've only been climbing in them for a few weeks now and outside they seemed to perform fine. They're not as comfortable as my Evolv Defy's and I don't really seem to get any better performance out of them, although they are stiffer. A decent shoe, but gonna have to climb in them a bit longer before I have a definitive opinion on them. The nice thing is they're one of the few shoes that I could find in size 14 online. I put a hole in my other shoes the weekend before a big climbing trip. Ordered them on BC and had them 2 days later! As usual, BC gets props for that.
Edit: I was not impressed with them initially and they blew out in less than 3 months of climbing. So not very durable
