Although I am a beginner/intermediate climber, I chose the Boreal Silex shoe as this was the most comfortable shoe I could find! I had visited several shops and tried many different brand/styles before settling on this shoe. They fit me well; snug, but not too tight. The lacing gives as precise a fit as the description claims. I use them for indoor bouldering at the moment and they are serving me well. Happily, I think they look good too.
I have been using them weekly for about 6 weeks now and I have had no negatives.

Excellent pair of climbing shoes at the right price
The Boreal Silex climbing shoe is everything you'd hope for from a mid to upper range climbing shoe. The fit is snug (depending on your foot shape, as with all climbing shoes), the rubber is grippy and the fabric is breathable.
Bouldering in-centre or cliff climbing outdoors, the Silex is a reliable companion to guarantee excellent performance.

Real comfortable shoe, too small.
The size guide online said to go with the same side shoe as I am normally which in this case was too small so maybe go up 1/2 a size. Apart from squashed toes the shoe did feel really comfortable. Got them at an awesome price aswell. Really good looking shoe as well, the bright yellow looks good and quite a light weight shoe (although I've not had a huge range of rock shoes).

Great for wide feet
Great entry level shoe for a wider foot. I wanted a comfortable shoe that wasn't going to cause damage to my feet.

Excellent product & service!
Really good shoe. Just started taking climbing seriously & the shoe has been no end of help! Fitted great as my feet are a little wide but also did them in small sizes too.
