Great Gym Shoe
Got these for gym climbing at my local bouldering gym. I prefer to climb in slippers, indoors and outdoors, but I have lace ups for harder outdoor climbing as well. These are perfect for the gym. They're comfortable and I'm able to toe in on pretty small stuff, despite the fact they're not on a super aggressive last. For a slipper the heel stays on pretty well; the ability to slip out of a heel hook is the down side of wearing slippers. The no-edge technology took some getting used to (I switched over from 5.10 Moccasyms due to Adidas's recent quality failures) and the change over from being precise to stand on an edge to being more precise about my toe took about two weeks to fully get used to. I climb V6 to V7 and the no edge works well for getting on tiny foot chips. I find, oddly, it makes the biggest difference when I cut feet or throw a foot out to something far; I just have a lot better idea of where my foot is and I am more able to hit the hold and stick. Similarly, the rubber seems sticky; although, I think they slip slightly more than the 5.10's it's not significantly different. And they look sweet. Personally, I think they run a bit long/large. I can climb in a 39.5 or 39 (I used both in the Moccasym slippers), but I got these in a 38.5 and they feel just right. One con, the inside of these shoes got VERY smelly within a month. I've not had this happen in any other shoe; they'll get smelly for the day, but generally the odor goes away. I'm guessing the synthetics in this shoe are particularly odor-trapping. They got smelly and stayed smelly. So, I got a good odor spray. Anticipate you'll need to make this extra expenditure for shoe upkeep.

Pros:
-Comfortable
-Precise for footwork
-Good heel fit (for a slipper)
-Sticky rubber
-Cool color

Cons:
-Run large, be aware
-Materials get smellier than the average

Overall, amazing climbing shoes.
I'm also an Adult that has purchased these shoes for climbing.

Background: I climb avidly, weekdays 1-2 hours daily, and weekend 3-5 hour sessions with friends. I primarily boulder (V6-7), and climb outdoors (whenever I conditions are right).

Review: These shoes are some of the most comfortable climbing shoes I've ever purchased. To put things in perspective, I've purchased, cycle through, and currently own Dragos, Booster S, Skwamas, and 5-10 Moccs. The climbing shoes that I wear 90% of the time are the Maverinks (10% being Skwamas for hard edging and overhung routes). The shoes themselves thrive when it comes to friction slab work. For everything else, it's never a question of whether my shoes are limiting factors to my success. They're sensitive shoes that allow me to focus on my footwork, but allow me to execute heel-hooks and toe-hooks as needed. Edging on very small chips can be difficult, but not impossible.

Overall, they're a wonderful pair of shoes I can wear for hours and a shoe ideal for training. (My opinion)

Sizing: Street/Casual wear I wear Size 44-45 EU (Size 10-11 US - Sizes vary depending on brand). For climbing, I drop down to 42-43 EU (Size 8-9 US - Sizes vary depending on brand).

For perspective:
Booster S (Scarpa): 42.5 Loose - Decent shoe, never considered wearing them for a long session.
Dragos (Scarpa): 43.5 Very Loose - Purposely purchased these shoes larger, Air Pockets are present, but still allow me to get the job done (heels, toes, slab, edging). I can wear them for 2-3 hours comfortably.
Moccs (Five-ten): 42.5 Tight/Loose-heels - Unable to execute very strong heel hooks, but can wear for hours. (3+ hours)
Skwamas (La Sportiva): 42 Snug/Tight - My go-to shoe when I want to Send my current projects. I love these things, but cannot wear prolong periods of time (2-3+ Hours)
Maverinks (La Sportiva): 42 Tight/Perfect- Can wear for (3+ Hours). I love them.

Best of luck,

Perfect Training Tool
I am an adult who grabbed a pair for training, gym / comp climbing. The Maverink is soft, comfortable and sensitive. Perfect for improving footwork in the gym both bouldering and sport climbing.

Designed for younger climbers, the fit is low volume and hugs the foot perfectly without putting too much stress on your gnarly climber toes. Down size at least 2 to 2.5 sizes for fit and performance. I am a US 9.5 (EU 42.5) and downsized to a (EU 38.5).

With a less tensioned P3 rand, the Maverink is comfortable enough for an entire training session. No Edge technology helps with precise foot placement and sensitivity while improving outsole wear.

I climb outside with something stiffer in the midsole and with more rubber coverage like the Skwama or Solution but view the Maverink as a perfect training tool. It will always have a place in my quiver!

If you want a well designed, minimal, cheap training shoe or are a younger climber wanting to take your climbing to the next level, you can't go wrong. Plus, you can customize them...sick!!

Comfortable while technical, amazing overall shoes
Full disclosure: I'm a full-grown adult but fortunate enough to have smaller feet which made me ecstatic to find out I could grab a pair of these guys. I also own the Futuras, which also has No-Edge technology (which I love by the way) but is shaped more aggressively. I bought this pair as a gym climbing shoe, reserving the Futuras for outdoor use.

So far, I'm loving the Maverinks. They are mostly flat-soled making them extremely comfortable, while the No-edge tech makes me feel like I'm climbing better with more precise footwork. Edging, smearing, and toe hooks feel amazing in them. My only complaints would have to be the elastic gore that helps to secure the shoe in place; it has the tendency to roll up on itself when slipping them on, which feels slightly irritating. It can be quickly fixed in a few seconds though, which isn't a dealbreaker but annoying either way. Also for more demanding heel hooks, I can sense a tiny bit of movement in them when putting pressure on the heel. Not a huge deal though.

My street shoe size is a US 9 (EU 42) and I sized these in a 39 which is extremely tight for optimal performance (although they're still very comfortable in my opinion for a few burns). For more "tolerable" comfort, I would go 2-2.5 European sizes down.
