not to mention the heel cup. Best heel i've ever tried.
ironically the velcro is the thing i liked the least in this shoe and 50% of the reason why i'm not buying them anymore. I mostly boulder, and that f*cking 3rd velcro is scietifically placed to make any kind of toe hook or heel-toe jam hard and painful, not to mention it will resist 10 tries on such moves before tearing apart, if you don't tape it.
This shoe uses the same last as the testarossa and the only thing 'better' is the velco, but as mentioned - has its problems.
I'd go for laces any day, you can't beat being able to adjust the volume of the shoe to match your foot shape. Of course, if the VS fit me properly, I'd of bought them over the Testarossa but they don't. They're rigid and have an oddly shaped toebox.
