I got them for my first new pair so I can't really compare. They are decent shoes and about 20-30 pounds cheaper than high bland shoes. But they did not wow me. Maybe I expected too much from 5 stars reviews.
It is not sticky and hard to stick to stones with toes. To make sure not falling down, I need to put more than toes. And as the description says, the soles are stiff, but anything they are too stiff. It does not seem softening . And the Z shaped fastener is not so nice. Although it is indeed easy to wear. I am woman and the shoe is too wide in the lower side of foot. But when I try to narrow with Z shaped fastener, it automatically narrow both upper and lower sides.
I will get other shoes with high brand next time, but right now they are enough.

Not grippy/sticky enough - rubber is smooth and slips on holds. the right shoe is slightly smaller than left, causing big toe to scrunch painfully in shoe. Do not seem to stretch. Would recommend going for a well known brand to ensure you are getting value for money.

For a beginner, these shoes are brilliant. You can support whole body weight on a tiny edge and the toes are aggressive enough to jam in the tiniest gap.
Don't stretch like everybody told me they would. Suggest that you buy for fit, not to stretch. Or wear round the house in socks for a few days.
You buy your first climbing shoes "blind", not knowing what you really want. I struck really lucky with these shoes, they are fabulous. I love them.
