I wear them pretty loose as suits my climbing style… sadly not at TC level, so haven't noticed any stretch. They are unlined so theoreticatly could stretch, thought the slingshot rand covers a lot of the shoe sides. The tongue is well padded, part of the comfort, so can adapt to different foot volumes.The lacing pattern seems good to crank them on and the padded tongue helps with this too. No noticeable tongue padding collapse yet. Not much instep shaping — fairly flat inside. I got a comfortable length fit so not sure how they'd be if fitted tight lengthways.
I lost my mojo for the perfect shoe when climbing with a friend who climbed an 18 in old approach shoes that I could't do the first move on!
