You'll be surprised at what a descent cobbler can do (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2C8biG0na54). Depending on how you use your feet the greatest area of wear will be on the tip of your big toe where the sole meets the rand. As you wear down the sole you will expose more of the rand below it, you may also notice a hole forming below your big toe, as soon as you notice it reaches a point where you feel you're starting to wear into the rand it's time to resole the shoe....

Neither... Verdon brings to mind long vertical technical limestone in other words a shoe not designed with plastic in mind. If that was your intended purpose I'd say go with laces because you won't be taking them off all the time and they'll allow you to make small ajustments to the fit. They also dont seen to have many eyelets, spreading the laces further apart and making it easier to get the shoe on and off compared to the pinks or the old blanco. The laces also look nicer if that matters.

TC Pro's size similar to the Katana Velcro, which size about a half size smaller than the Futura. So if you're UK 9 in Futura, try 8.5 in the TC Pro.

Just a point on jumping jacks. Research has suggested that some people are hampered in sport and in real life ( think of people who march with their right arm and foot moving together) by not being able to cross the midline of their body. You should coordinate eg left arm with right foot, right arm with left foot. Think of soccer players warming up, running sideways and scissor in their legs. Jumping jacks are therefore the worst possible exercise, as they reinforce left arm/left leg and right arm/right leg coordination, just what you don't want. So warm up linking opposite sides.

A haul loop is usually a small piece of webbing attached to the back of some harnesses and will vary in strength depending on its construction. It's usually used on multi-pitch and bigwall routes for attaching a tag line to haul gear, an extra belay device for belaying the second and rapelling, a chalk bag or even a pair of approach shoes. Its use depends largely on its strength, the practicality of the application and your imagination.
