Hey there,

Hope you're well! I'm a beginning climber looking for some shoes that are mens sizes (42.5+) but have more of a womens' climbing shoe profile when it comes to fit. So far the ones I've found that fit best are the Kronos, the Helix, the Force V, and the TC Pro, though I'm wondering if the TC Pro is supposed to be looser in the upper ankle.

Would love any recommendations you have and please let me know any additional information that would be helpful. Also available to chat at <phone number removed by moderator>.
