Crawe 1

The Crawe manages to blend excellent technical performance on edges with good all-round use and comfort, reckons Theo Moore. It's rare that a climbing shoe gets this right, and as a result the Crawe is brilliant for both routes and bouldering.

After being initially disappointed with the Crawe I’ve found it’s now my default shoe as it’s a comfortable snug fit and versatile and great in most respects but I’d still want other specialist shoes to reach for when needed. It’s edging falls short of the Blancos which have yet to be bettered IMO and obviously it isn’t downturned. Like the reviewer I’m a street size 10 but find that 9 in the Crawe is a perfect fit

The fact that FiveTen nailed the sizing is hardly a new thing. It has always been like that, even before Adidas takeover. 
 

But afaik they still have different classes of shoes, and the sizing reflects that. The high performance series will be smaller/tighter in a given size than the one from their all day comfort series.

Fwiw I seem to recall being advised to buy a half size down. Couldn’t wear them and had to sell on. Half size up for comfort definitely.

Why are they messing around with new models with crap names, when have discontinued one of the best shoes they ever produced? Bring back the Blancos!

It always reminds me of "The Claw" from Toy Story! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o31UcPeiUCc&ab_channel=RazTehWaz
