Rated 2 out of 5 by Toedragger from Great shoe that lacks durability I have owned three pairs of these, the last being bought about 4 months ago, and will not buy another. The toes blow out extremely quickly regardless of how precise you are with your footwork. The rubber is great and it is a good shoe shape for edges and slightly overhanging stuff. The heel fits poorly but somehow manages to work well and hold even with the extra bulk. The neoprene lining traps odor pretty easily and gets pretty funky compared to a leather lining. It's a good shoe, just not worth the high price for how short lived they are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeffniv from not for wide feet Performance: Great edging and smearing performance. Nothing really like C4 stickiness. The slight asym. definitely pushes your force to the big toe, though the shape of the shoe is optimized for Egyptian foot shape. Sizing: I got a size 9. I wear a size 9 in Vans and Evolv shoes. I would suggest going a half size down because there was a lot of void space in the heel cup longitudinally. Laterally, this shoe was a bit skinny. My feet are wide, think Crocs. Even though I know the unlined leather would stretch a bit, I felt it was too skinny to anticipate that and, frankly, I'm just done with the break-in periods. Luckily, Adidas has a great return policy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by buttscootjunior from Comfy moderate w/ well fitting heel I've had these shoes for less than a month and have put only about 12 hours of indoor climbing on them, so take this review with a grain of salt. They are very well fitting in the toes and heel. They have broken in about less than a half size so far but will probably continue to stretch. I would recommend getting a pretty snug fit or they might get pretty loose after a while. I'm a 9.5 in Mythos and Moccasins and 10.5 in Solutions. Size 10 in these shoes fits me like a glove, isn't uncomfortable after an hour or so, but doesn't allow my feet to move inside the shoe. Comfy moderate shape, decent for heel hooks, great edging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jeon from shoes for wide feet But I don't recommend They are good for wide feet climber and all day comport. But a low-quality product finish ruin everything. When I got them first, I found low-quality Bonding finish. I didn't care and think there would be any functional problems, so I tried climbing on them. But after I only wore them twice indoor only, the sole got a crack. It looks like the inside of the rubber sole does not fully filled. If I keep on wearing it, It will get a hole too soon. I claimed it a few days ago. I wonder how Five ten handle it. Please Don't tell me to pay for return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gsgibbon from comfortable all around shoe This is my second pair of these shoes. They stretch 1/2 size. Good comfort balanced with solid edging and enough downturn for overhanging climbing. Others have stated that the sole wears out quickly, I agree and anticipate resoling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by handjams from Perfect Wide Foot Shoe If you're looking for a shoe to replace the discontinued Galileo, this has the same fit (for me). I use it for all types of climbing, but mostly west coast granite crack. It's great. There's a tiny of bit stretch over time, but nowhere near as bad as the mocs. I don't have the "empty heel" issue either, I think you need a wide hobbit foot for this shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AColumbus from Hole in toe box after 12 indoor climbing sessions I bought these shoes in December of 2018. Initially I was very pleased with the shoe and performance. Unfortunately, they did not last and already have a hole in the rubber toe box area after only 12 short indoor climbing sessions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shirm from Great shoe This shoe is fantastic for almost anything. The most comfortable somewhat aggressive shoe I've had in 20 yrs. The toe is a little more pointed than others (but less than the Quantum) so you have to be prepared for that fit and load on the big toe. Also you may want to look at the shape of your foot, this favors "Egyptian" shaped foot. Edges and points like no other. I have these in 7.5 (comfortable performance), 8.5 Quantum (blue), 8.5 street shoe.
