TL:DR heavier and supportive than many in this category, would be good for standing in aiders or crossing firm snowfields. Full review here:

The shape of the heel is terrible for any sort of strap-on crampon--more so than some competitors. That's my complaint.

Great review!

I've had these shoes for about a month and a half now and they have been great!  They started out a little snug but broke in great.  I've found they're great for warm up climbs, especially some short sport routes we've got around northeastern NM.  Definitely gonna be using these for quite awhile.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
