review submited by:
Being a long term katana wearer, and having experimented with more expensive "technical" shoes (miuras), I bought the Typhoons when I needed a new pair of shoes for a trip and didn't have time to get to a shop to buy a pair. And it's a decision I've not regretted! While the rubber may not feel quite as sticky as 5.10's finest, the fit and performance is great for an intermediate level climber looking for something a bit more aggressive for bouldering and sport but not looking for the hefty price that normally entails.
I've got myself a 2nd pair now (lost the first pair!). I've used it indoors and out, bouldering, sport and trad and have had no complaints! I'll probably be back for a new pair when these wear through, though they're seeming perfectly durable and long lasting at the moment.
Overall, a great all rounder at a reasonable price!
