Summary:
Great shoes... I actually buyed the same size that my other shoes (5.10 galileo) but are really more confotable... I found what I was searching, for a very precise shoe but confotable... they are not the best for edging..... but perfect for multipich, confotable without sicryficing presition.... may de this ones can be compared to 5.10 mocasym... if you need edging machines buy anazasi or galileo is nothing better

Summary:
The Cobras are definetly a great bouldering slipper..Great all around shoe. Especially on sandstone.The cobras are heel hooking monsters when down sized correctly. I've had 4 pair and now on my 5th pair. I recommend these to ALL mid level to advance level climbers.

Summary:
Good shoes at first, but they stretch way too much. I went down three sizes, and they feel too big now. They climb great, but they fall apart. I've had mine for two months and they're toast. Not great for edging if you're used to something like a muira. Worth it for 50 bucks, but not for full retail

Customer Service:
Wilderness Exchange is great.

Summary:
La Sportiva shoes seems to be the choice of every serious climber. Once you get to know La sportiva, you will appreciate them! A friend recommended me these cobra's. They're absolutly fantastic! I bought them 3 sizes down and they are now, after the break-in period, strangely comfortable. Your foot is locked into place which gives you a great deal of precise control. The rubber is sticky, but maybe a bit soft for edging.
For use in the gym they are perfect, easy slip on and off, and good for both bouldering and routes. What need i say more? Great shoe for little money

Customer Service:
Good

Summary:
Easy on, easy off and a great fit for my foot.

The rubber is good enough for a lot of climbing, but Stealth friction is better (of course).

I was disappointed, though, when the "heavy-duty" elastic stretched out.
