I got these for a long multi-pitch climb, shooting for Devil’s Tower this Fall.  First thing I noticed about these shoes is they are comfortable.  They go on easily and the laces allow the shoe to tighten to around a wide variety of foot widths.  They are not super aggressive, but that type of shoe would get a little sore after several hours.  The grip is good and the leather upper means no smell like the synthetic shoes.  I felt the size was a little small, but the european sizing helped.  I usually wear 11.5 but had to go to 11 2/3rds.
