This is an all-around technical Velcro shoe sensitive enough for the gym but not so soft and banana-shaped that it spanks you on outdoor face climbs with a women's-specific fit. Our female testers loved the high arch, narrow and asymmetric toe box, and low-slung heel, but were disappointed with the weedy heel cup itself. A more grabby, aggressively tensioned heel it doesn't have to be deep would significantly rev up what is otherwise an excellent high-performance women's shoe.
Pros: Sporty shoe with a women's fit.
Cons: Passive heel (but also keeps the shoe comfortable.)
