Red Chili's price-point is built for comfort and durability. As expected, however, they didn't perform as well as the spendier models by Red Chili. While the Durango is a good choice for the frugal who want an all-around performer, and who only occasionally climb, I would not recommend these to anyone who plans to climb harder than 5.10. The barebones shoe doesn't perform well on harder routes and is almost useless on angles steeper than 30 degrees overhanging. It is a fair shoes for gyms and guides looking for a durable rig for clients and students.
