I'm partial to Lasportiva Miuras. I like the lace up version best.

The one that stays on the foothold?

I would say that most of the vertical test pieces (To Bolt, Darkness, Last Waltz, Vicious Fish) get done in Anasazi Blancos or Anasazi Verdes. They get done (of course) in Miuras too, but the other, steeper testpeices (White Wedding, Scarface) seem to be a better match.

But now that I think about it, for the Smith test pieces it probably just depends on who's supplying your shoes :-).

Also, I know this from watching others, not from sending.

I saw everything from grandstones on heinous cling to slippers being used on chain reaction. I used Muira VS's personally, but anything stiff should suffice.

tomato, tomotto, kill mike amato.

5.10 galileo gets my vote. Similar to anasazi, but significantly stiffer through point of toe. Would chain reaction really qualify as an edging testpiece?

Apparently one of each is the way to go...
