It is not about what shoe you wear, its all about your technique and skill. You can get regular good quality running shoes to do what you want them to do if you know what you're doing.

They only go up to size 10 in women's and I need a size 11
wtf kind of company is that???
Also, I really don't get the whole concept of resoling a shoe--isn't the rest of the shoe kind of worn out by the time you head out to resole them?
I wonder if a male pair would fit me....

The DOT rubber sole has absolutely no serations which is completely worthless on any dirt or decomposed granite trail while carrying any kind of load. Descending a typical steep very loose Sierra gully/couloir with them is downright dangerous. I have found they have Zero traction on any loose trail.
They are strictly designed for approaches to the crag with light to no loads or actually climbing.
