"Super Precise, Super Sticky, Super Tight."
I have had the Five Ten Blackwing for about a week now and have climbed in them 3 times. I am usually a 10.5 street shoe. I (sort of) sized down to a 10 in the Blackwing, and the fit is excellent. any tighter and my toes would fall off, any looser there would be slop side to side and in the heel. When you first try them on allow about 20 minutes for the shoe to warm up. The Stealth HF rubber is soft enough it will mold to your foot. The "Cowdura" upper may mold to your feet slightly but don't expect it to stretch. The velcro strap opening allows for easy on and off and the burrito tongue is fleece on the inside. As far as performance goes, the shoe stands on microedges like it was born to, and smears on slab like a champ. That being said, it's true calling is heavily overhung boulder problems. Hooking is great, but leans more toward heel hooking (not enough toe rubber). My only small gripe is that the heel is maybe 1/8 inch too deep so it feels like my heel is not seated all the way.
These shoes came really tight/uncomfortable at first but they broke in pretty quick(3 days of bouldering) and fit my foot really well. Toeing/edging is really accurate and sticks to almost anything. Although the heel cup is a little loose which is my only concern. Also, i got the blackwings the same size as my street shoe and they fit perfectly.
