New for 2007, the Gambit features Five Tens highly-acclaimed Stealth Onyxx rubber for superb friction and durability. A perforated synthetic upper breathes to keep feet cool and comfortable and also stretches just enough to mould to your foot, and provides an extremely comfortable, precise fit. The Gambit is perfect for climbs up to the 5.11 range, and is the best choice for intermediate to advanced climbers seeking high performance, versatility, and comfort in a lace up shoe that excels on the rock or in the gym.

General comments: I tried these boots on in the shop and was prepared to pay up the full £70 for them, When I was told by the assistant that they were now £50 I couldn't get my wallet out fast enough, They fit my relatively low volume feet nicely, were relatively comfortable straight out of the box and appear to be more than capable of doing what I want them to climbing around HVS grade and bouldering up to around V2. They'll more than likely be fine for much harder, but I'm not at the moment.
My only gripe with these boots is that after a short while they smell terrible, far far worse than any other climbing boots I've had and that includes some Red Chili boots that I wore for about 2 years and had resoled. The smell is probably something to do with the synthetic Cowdura material used and the small amount of padding in the tongue.
Pros: Good narrow fit, good rubber, good for £50.
Cons: terrible smell
