by fromSpider-Man shoes! I call these my spidey shoes cause they stick to rock so fantastically well I feel like Spider-Man! They're fast and light. I added custom orthodics for more arch support. And unlike the other reviewers I haven't had trouble with the laces, though I do double knot them. Scrambling up a tough peak in Glacier National Park this weekend I was able to fly up steep gullies because the smooth front underside of the shoe makes the smallest of footholds managable, just like a rock climbing shoe. The only downside is that the lack of big lugs on the soles makes them more slippery on vegetation and other surfaces. For rock though, I can't imagine a better shoe.

by fromAwesome shoes! I wore these shoes brand new, straight out of the box, to climb Granite Peak (Montana's highest peak). I didn't get a single blister and they performed superbly on the long, boulder-hopping and scree approach, as well as on steeper terrain (class 4 climbing). They're also great for mountain biking because of the stiffer sole.

by fromI love my Scarpa's These shoes have been great for hiking. I was previously just wearing my Brooks Cascadias, but they weren't cutting it for the hiking descents. My big toes were in pain by the end of my hikes so I bought the Scarpa Crux and they have been great. Great traction, great fit and comfortable all around.

by fromGreat approach shoe I've used these approach shoes as they are... approach shoes. They have great traction and are comfortable enough for a 'fun' approach. I tried the Women's La Sportiva Boulder X shoes and these were much more comfortable Biggest downside is the tongue slides to the side when I wear them, despite having the laces go through the tongue-holder-loop-thingy. But, worth the hassle for the traction.

by fromLove my Scarpas! Good comfortable approach shoes, not to mention, pretty dang stylish! I would go into REI and see these shoes and pass on purchasing them, and finally after about 4 or 5 visits, I finally got them and I am happy I did!

by fromQuality Concerns I bought these shoes because they were available in my small size (Ws 5.5) and was initially delighted at how well they fit and performed. They were comfortable right out of the box and made me feel very sure-footed. However, the second time I wore them the right shoe developed a hole in the upper, sort of near the big toe knuckle. I had only worn them on gravel hiking trails (nothing too rugged) and the area that split had not been unduly abraded (if at all). I had been looking forward to wearing these shoes for "real" climbing approaches because of how secure they feel but I don't think I can use them for their intended purpose because I doubt they will hold up over more rugged terrain.

by fromPoor Quality I was excited to receive these shoes as a gift- great traction, comfortable, and I like the purple stripes. But, within 4 or 5 times of normal use, the left shoe developed a hole in the suede that continues to grow.
