i was skeptical at first to try them and hesitated for a while before finally giving in and getting them. they're VERY similar to the 3007 but they have a suede tip and some other small details. the inner sole material is different from the 3007- softer and white. normally the inner soles bother my feet so i have to tape them but i haven't had to tape them because i don't feel it! i've only done a couple classes in them but they're holding up well so far! For reference, in the 3007's i'm a standard H shank (i kill mediums within a week...) and in the Katyas i've started out in a soft shank. It feels like a medium shank so far. this shoe would do well for people with very flexible feet.
