Dow WilliamsBest shoe to date..

Voted 5/5

for me...have used for the past year. Once they are broke in, they will become your best friend, whether on short sport or 10 pitch walls. Backcountry.com has an excellent price on womens at the moment. I climb full time and abuse the hell out of any shoes I own and my sole started coming off the Miura quicker than softer soles but you can't have your cake and eat it too. Very technical though, super suction when you curl your toes on an upward reach. Takes a little while to break in as all good shoes do. Nice sticky and hard rubber. Need to make them a tad more durable if they can. Might have improved the sole by now. All the fad in Canada during the summer of 2006.

stephomy newest shoes

Voted 5/5

these are my newest shoes and I love them. They fit fantastically and I can stick even the most tiny edges and are great for hooking. Not only that but I got them new for $80. I would highly recommend these shoes.
