Just bought a second pair of these. The first lasted 5 El Cap routes plus a few runs up the Tower and Column. Free climbs well and stiff enough for long days in the aiders.

For sale: A pair of classic Mariacher Dru wall shoes, size 44 that are in great shape. Bought in Feb 2013 on eBay. They would fit me great----but are too narrow for my feet. To get them right I'd have to so some serious breaking in. And even then I think they're just made for narrow while I am regular or wide footed.

Willing to sell for what I paid. . . about $50. They're practically unused, even though they're late 80's, early 90's shoes.
Pics available.

For reference--I recently bought Sportiva Boulder X wall shoes in 43.5. They are similar length to the Mariacher Drus I'm selling.

Very disappointed that these were not a better fit. They would be such a sweet big wall shoe.

I bought a pair of the 5.10 Camp 4 shoes to try out as wall shoes. The Five Tennies are nice and comfy but they wear out quickly.

Evol shoes have come up with a new design that I would like to test at some stage. I have a pair of their old design but they are a little too big for me so I need to sell them on ebay.

ya, i think the old ones were a bust.  i have some..used them once and no dice.. 

hope these are better...  look 'lasportive ganga esque'. 

i'm still stoked about my guide tennies (with LOTS of seam seal).
