One of the most popular bouldering shoe on the market at the market and for good reason too - they're awesome.
Whilst on first glances they appear very down-turned, after not long wearing them you soon find they flex up surprisingly easily and as such perform impressively well on low angle terrain as well as steep, overhanging ground. They need to be bought tight, the strap shouldn't be depended so much as to tighten the shoe - they're basically fitted like slippers with the strap is there to pull your heel in tight.
On my fourth pair now, I find them fantastic for frequent indoor use as they're impressively hardwearing compared to softer shoes, equally outdoors they've done me proud up many Font 7 problems.
A unique fit, but if you can get used to the shape, a fantastic, high-performance shoe.
