I wanted and aggressive shoe for climbing in the gym and wasn't disappointed. The no-edge design works amazingly well. When you put the shoe on it sucks onto the foot. I had to size them one size larger than what I wear for the Katana Laced. Liked them so much, I bought a second pair when they went on sale.
I purchased the Futura for bouldering in the gym. The shoes are very aggressive so you should try them out before purchasing. The no edge design works well.
Most sensitive rock boot available. I prefer this to both the Genius and Speedster.
There is no better shoe available worldwide. I've tried all of the, including the Speedster and Genius, and I still prefer the Futura.
Good shoe. Despite what Sportiva says about sizing I found that you still have to down size at least 3 sizes to get this shoe to perform near the Speedster. Still prefer the sensitivity of the speedster
Once you get used to these shoes you can never climb with shoes, with edges, again. They are so sensitive and change the way you climb all angles of rock.
one of the best shoes around
Good shoe. Have to really downsize them to get the right fit
