Let me start off by saying that I personally have been climbing for about a year and a half in mainly a indoor gym and that I mainly boulder v5 to v6. I have also owned these shoes for about 6 months now and i have to say that since I got these shoes my climbing has improved greatly. The down turned toe may not be the best with vertical climbs but when your using it with overhangs, caves and especially bouldering.
The team 5.10's stealth rubber is one of the stickiest rubbers on the market and really helps with getting some of the smallest chips on the wall. The teams also have a good amount of rubber on the toe and a deep heel cup for remarkable toe and heal hooking on the hardest of routes.
As for sizing the team 5.10's its recommended to go with your street shoe size. I wear a 10.5 street, so I got the teams in 10.5. The shoe is really snug on the foot and feels like your wearing a rubber sock. The shoe wont really ever break in, so putting the shoe on 3 months later is going to feel like your putting it on for the first time. But after 30 minutes of wearing them in a day, the shoes really loosen up, but will return to being stiff.
