    Great gym/beater shoes, great value

    I bought these shoes as a gym beater shoe to keep my high performane VSRs fresh for outdoor climbing. These shoes are tight fitting slippers (size down!) with an upper meant to stretch with a child's growing feet. That means these shoes are super comfortable! They're not very aggressive, but they have a P3 system, like the Solutions, and have no edge technology, and perform extremely well. I got these shoes on sale for $90 - they were a great buy. I'm a street shoe size 7.5, I downsized to a 37.5.

    Soft/Sensitive Shoes

    These were my first try at La Sportiva's no edge shoes. Initially, like every one else says, it took a while to "learn" how to use these shoes. In fact, after climbing indoors with them for about 2-3 sessions, I decided to put them away and bring out my regular shoes (Butora Endeavor) because I felt I could smear better with them. I decided to give the Maverinks a second chance and began using them outdoors. Compared with regular shoes, these offered me more sensitivity and I have a much better sense of whether my foot placement is solid or not. Over time, edging and smearing felt pretty good on these shoes, even indoors, and I was pretty surprised at how I was able to stand on micro edges because unlike with other shoes, I could really feel how small of a hold my foot was on. Overall I think the no edge tech does exactly what La Sportiva claims it does and I really enjoyed wearing these shoes. With that being said, I'm not a big fan of Vibram rubber, especially indoors, but that's just me (BTW the description on this site says they come with XS Edge2 rubber, mine have XS Grip2). Another thing, these shoes really started to hurt my big toe knuckle, which happens with every shoe, but my shaman's are more comfortable than these guys. I would recommend these shoes if you want to give no edge a try and if they're on sale. If I were to buy another pair of no edge shoes, I'd go with the Futura's because they have that dimple/love bump thing in the sole and I really like how that feels. At the end of the day though, I don't feel like my money was wasted on these shoes. For reference I wear Vans 7.5 and have these in size 38. I climb V5 and 5.11a indoor.
