Rated4out of5byJanlynfromComfortable walkerI purchased these for wearing every day for a Europe trip. I haven't gone yet, but my two four mile prep walks have both been great. Very lightweight and comfortable out of the box.

Rated4out of5byMsShellyfromGreat approach shoeI'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.

Rated4out of5bysrubylfromI love my Scarpa'sThese 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.

Rated4out of5byartsy climber girlfromsticky, but need more cushionThey have a great look! They aren't bright orange, which is nice. You can wear them at the crag and after when you grab a bite. For the most part they are comfortable. I neglected to lace them down tight enough on a descent and my toes kept hitting the end, but that's my fault. They do run a little large. I normally wear a 39.5 and went down to a 39 and there is still about an inch before my toe hits the end. For me that's perfect, but they do run a bit big compared to other brands. They have done a great job on the few approaches I've been on since purchasing them. They stick to rock slabs and even do pretty good on loose dirt and rock. Not great, but what shoe does? My only complaint is the lack of cushion under the ball of the foot. I understand the reasoning behind it, but the balls of my feet didn't after a lengthy downhill set of rock "steps". Ow. If I could have landed on my heel, believe me I would have. So, I think with extra insoles these will be perfect for me.

Rated5out of5byawhite28fromSpider-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.
