I find them a bit softer than the Hiangles. I like the Hiangles for bouldering but prefer the Swamis for Sport routes.

I have found the Skwamas to be a great cross between the Katanas and the Solutions by La Sportiva. They hook well, and they also smear well. They are rigid, but also flexible (how's that for an oxymoron?), meaning that they edge well, and have the flexibility to be sensitive on the rock. They are softer than the Katanas and the Solutions, which I enjoy. I have gained a full climbing grade in these shoes. I really like the Skwamas because they combine everything I like about the Katanas with everything I like about the Solutions, and whereas I previously needed two different pairs of shoes for different tasks, I now only need one. I love the fit, I love the performance, and I love the features. What can I say? I'm hooked!

Used them for the past two months both indoors and outdoors for sport routes and bouldering and love them. They are pretty soft, giving a great feeling of what you're doing. They work very well on a variety of (steeper) routes.
