Review for Genius
No-Edge is a total beta changer! I've been a die-hard Solutions fan for ages, but I don't think I've worn them even once since I bought the Genius six months ago. I was holding out for the release of the new Skwama, but I caved and bought the Genius when the Skwama's release date was pushed back. Solutions were fantastic, but the break-in process what grueling to say the least. I know a lot of other climbers who agree. The Genius, which was even a full size smaller than my Solutions, fit like a slipper within two weeks (I usually climb 4-5 days a week) and the combination of an aggressive toe with such extreme sensitivity is a shockingly wonderful surprise. The heel cup isn't quite as pronounced as the Solution, which made it a little trickier to heel-hook, but you adjust really quickly and after a few climb sessions I didn't even notice anymore.

My only qualm with the Genius is the color combination, but that's just a personal opinion. I was worried that I'd hate having to constantly lace up the shoes, but they fit so well that I don't even have to untie them when putting them on. I've only taken them outdoors once, so I'm not sure how well such a sensitive toe lasts on the real rock, but they're perfect for the gym.
