Brand: Five Ten
A favoured shoe of mine and a surprisingly flexible beast, despite it's heavy down-turned appearance.
Benefiting from Five Ten's world famous Stealth Rubber in HF variety, they stick to anything and everything and given their relative softness swallow up and grip on the tiniest of protrusions. Where they really came into their own is when the going gets steep, the high sensitivity and claw like shape allow you to take so much more weight on to your legs than other models of shoe.
Sizing-wise you want to fit them very close, more often than not I climb with the laces undone and with the fit at the front end of the shoe pulling the toes in and around slightly they are very secure. When needs be however, pulling the lacing up tight, pulls them in super precisely and you have maximum control and secures the heels well in place.
I yo-yo between these and Sportiva Solutions, but at present these are my go to shoe.
