I just can't imagine how a slip on climbing shoe would stay on while heel hooking?! Anyone have any experience with this?

Hi Shannon, I think the best answer to this question would be simply to post a video of Chris Sharma climbing Dreamcatcher 9a. That route has a lot of heel hooks but Sharma seemed to get up it in his slip ons! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlcQ3mxlNfs Hope that helps, Dave
