La Sportiva Speedsters have been around for a couple of years in the shops here in the uk and elsewhere.
Great for sandstone,steep limestone(in particular polished smeary foot holds).Good for verticaly challenged folk sometimes as you can optimise the rock surrounding otherwise diffacult hands follow feet sequences.
Very good for indoors no more wearing down edges on gratuitously rough resin holds.
They get your feet strong and on the right rock will enhance your footwork.
No good for long edgy grey limestone though.
No good if they do not fit your foot shape.
