This boot is the most precise climbing shoe in my arsenal. I really climb better in this shoe, there are a few reasons, but it is mainly the wide fitting, and turn down toe. You see this shoe a lot at the hard crags in Europe, for good reason, it’s a master shoe.
The precision of the toe and the excellent rubber seem to have combined, and made my footwork faster, and faster is good. You can also just paste your toe into tiny dishes and friction corners. I wear then tight with my toes turned down and the laces help this procedure as they go almost down to the end. The Toe and the out side edge are supported by the shoes structure and give rail like stability.
Who is it for? Good climbers will appreciate this shoe, it is perfect for hard red-points on limestone, but general lead climbing, is where it scores. Probably too good for the climbing wall, weekend climbing and trophy red-points, are where it is a must.
Try the fit, compare it with a narrower shoe, top climbers are used to a bit of discomfort, but the Testarossa is for me the most comfortable of the tight fitting shoes. Any way we are all different, have different shaped feet, but the lacing system seems to allow a variety of volume in users. This Shoe is pricey and can be hard to get hold of, but it might be worth it for you.
