    Very good shoe let down by the heel design

    I normally wear 43 and I bought these in 42. Sizing is quite small I'd say. I was impressed how comfortable these are from the day 1 esp compared with shoes I used before (miuras).

    After 6 months of 4x a week indoor bouldering the shoes are as tight as they were (no stretch) also they keept their shape very well. Construction is solid and there's plenty rubber left, perhaps enough for another 6 months.

    Would I buy these again? Unfortunately no. A huge let down for me is the heel design. Altough in general the shoe is very narrow, heel is both wide and "pointy" . Somehow it still does work with heel hooks etc but doesn't my feet as it should. Another weird thing with the heel design is the "diagonal" bit of rubber that suppose to push the feet forward - it is way too tight and even tho my fingers are already painfully curled in it somehow till pushes my feet to the front, resulting in pointy bottom of heel rubber actually not touching my heel.

    Make the heel narrower and relax the diagonal rubber band a little. This will make it perfect!

    Me han sorprendido

    Son un pie de gato muy bueno calidad/precio.
    Podrían competir con otros de gama top con un par de cambios. Yo los uso para escalada en bloque (con ellos he probado hasta 7C+ y no respondieron bien.

    PROS:
    -comodos (uso 3 tallas menos)
    -precisos y potentes (concentran muy bien la fuerza aunque no son super agresivos).
    -cordones (ayudan a tener un mejor encaje para pies con un volumen bajo).
    -el Performa shape es un avance tecnológico para simond muy notable.

    CONTRAS:
    -les falta un pelín de sensibilidad para techos (aunque es un pie de gato que va ganando sensibilidad con el tiempo, paciencia en las primeras sesiones con ellos).
    -el talón no está a la altura del resto del producto (faltaría acabar de recubrirlo de goma como en los rock o los vertika. Esto en deportiva no dará problema hasta grados muy altos)PD: yo les he puesto caucho líquido a los míos para no romper el cuero al usar empeines en roca.
    -les falta goma en la puntera para empeines aunque siga sin ser un pie de gato enfocado a esto. (Para ello habría que desplazar un poco la cordonera como observamos en modelos como el chimera de Scarpa).

    Os ánimo a probar estos pies ya que son un buen todoterreno a un precio bueno. Depende de la talla vas a tener un pie o muy cómodo o muy agresivo.

    A great deal !!

    Happy to be a user of this performance line shoe from Simond. It is most suited for moderately overhung or vertical sport climbing routes. The performance asymmetric shape of the last gives you a solid and powerful precision.

    The Vibram XS grip rubber is sticky while smearing on slabs. The rubber is durable and is suitable for warm climate countries like India or south-east Asia.

    The stiffness is just right. After breaking in, it is soft enough for smearing and doing technical moves on slab and stiff enough for edging on small footholds.

    The heel construction is decent. The heel fit is always an issue for Indian climbers as their heel are relatively narrower.

    Not the best shoe to be used indoors due to its relatively lower sensitivity. But, it works well on boulders outdoors.

    The speed lacing system ensures a snug fit according to your foot shape!

    This shoe is best suited for a regular intermediate to advanced climber looking for a performance shoe for hard sport or multipitch routes.Definitely not for beginners due to its aggressive shape.
