Super sticky, run large
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 9
I ordered these to try on as I'm searching for a pair of approach shoes that are sticky enough for scrambles, but also supportive enough for long hikes with a heavy pack.
As noted, these definitely run large. Adidas owns 5.10 and these were true to Adidas sizing (which consistently runs large). I had some extra room in them, but they weren't unwearable. Would have probably tried a half size down to see if that was better.
The soles of these are super sticky. I walked across my hardwood floor in these and I could hear and feel the suction.
They fit like a comfortable sneaker, but I ultimately didn't feel like these would be supportive enough while carrying a heavy load. And most approaches where I climb are involve a fair amount of mud, so the breathable upper seemed like the wrong choice for me.
