I wrote the first review on this product after wearing them out for the first time. Second time at the crag, one of the suede grommets blew out. Heartbreaking, because I loved the way these shoes fit & moved on the rock, but I had to send them back to La Sportiva for warranty service. They sent be back a brand new pair, but there's no telling how long they'll last.
These shoes fit a little tight compared with hiking boots of the same size, but they're supposed to be for approaches. They're a lot lighter and a lot better for edging than the Vasque Wasaches that I own, but have less arch support. The tight fit makes them pretty warm too, so if you're doing anything vigorous, keep that in mind.
