Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe, even for beginners I wanted to finally get my own shoes instead of renting at the gym. I usually wear a 12.5 in street shoes but I'm flat-footed on my left foot. This has given me no amount of trouble when it comes to finding a climbing shoe that fits both feet. Initially purchased this shoe in a 45 and couldn't wear it for more than 10-15 minutes at a time. Exchanged it for a 45.5 and I'm very satisfied. As an inexperienced climber, I love how sticky the rubber is. Very reliable and comfortable as far as climbing shoes go. Being able to trust my shoe has given me more confidence to practice techniques that troubled me and attack harder routes at the gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT Shoe, but does stretch 1/2 size Love the shoe! As many have said, it stretches about a half size. I wear a 41.5 in Katana and Muira Velcro for my sport and bouldering (these two shoes have been the right size for the years that I've owned them). In a matter of 3 pitches, the 41.5 of the TC Pro stretched too much to be able to edge well. I decided to get the 41 and I'm in love. Get a half size smaller than normal, let it stretch and you will have your favorite new trad shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance and comfort The TC Pros live up to their great reputation. Fantastic edging shoe, solid on the merest nubbin, and great in cracks, and for me they are extraordinarily comfortable. My normal size fits fine (slightly wide 10.5, my normal climbing shoe/boot EU 44 size fit well out of the box, and after 10-12 days climbing, just perfect). The tongue is a little futzy - need to get it flat when you put them on, or the edges tend to roll up - but no big deal. Unless you really, truly need and can use a highly technical shoe, for high end sport or bouldering, the TC Pro is a great, well made, go anywhere, do anything climbing boot. Plus anything associated with Tommy Caldwell gets automatic bonus points. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every foot is different I rated this 5 stars because I think shoes (especially climbing) shouldn't be rated low because of fit issues. I generally love La Sportiva and based on the construction would probably recommend to a friend that they try them. I was trying to get a shoe that would be more comfortable on long outdoor climbs. These seemed to fit the bill and were highly praised by people in many of the climbing forums. The back is much higher than most shoes and protects the ankle, I could imagine that they would be good for cracks. I had several issues with the fit that I haven't had with Katana Lace, Muira VS. The side edge of the tongue pressed into my feet badly. From the pictures, it looked like it might have a soft booty type tongue which I find very comfortable. It was actually a more rigid synthetic tongue. Also my toes just didn't fill in the box very well. Bottom line is that they didn't work for me, but everyone's feet are different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Climb great. Tongue seam at base is painful I did a lot of research before buying these and they seemed like a great shoe. Friends also recommended them. And I agree that they allow you to climb extremely well. However, the horizontal attachment seam at the base of the tongue is very thick. It hits my big toes right where the knuckles are (and my toes are also slightly bent up from wearing them smaller). This caused very deep, red bruises and caused the nerves in my toes to go to numb. I love how stiff they are and they edge great, but the seam was an unexpected deal-breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Super positive right outta the box! Got the Muira and testarossa's the tc pro is everything they are with more comfort and support for long days at the crag... If Tommy's climbing 5.14 big walls in them I think I'm golden! Go sportiva

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stiff sole comfy for all-day climbing My old climbing shoes had soft soles that let me feel every bump in the rock, but the soles of my feet soon got sore on long climbs. I got the TC Pros for multi-pitch climbs because of their stiff soles. I like them for (a) protecting my feet, and (b) allowing me to stand on narrow edges and jugs without the shoe deforming too much. For sizing, I bought them with the toes in my right foot (larger by 1 size) just touching the end. Their have stretched just a little and I'm glad I didn't buy them any smaller. One note on the tongue: It is really wide and made of a mesh that tends to curl at the sides. This is uncomfortable if you don't get the tongue flat. I solved this problem by pushing the tongue as far as possible to the outside, inserting my foot, then centering the tongue. These are the ugliest climbing shoes I've owned, but they still get 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe I picked these up and my first climb in them was 980 feet at Red Rock! Loved them! About 2/3 of the way up the climb, I would loosen them at the belays to allow some rest. 9 pitches of climbing and all were semi-hanging belays. The rubber is stiff and took a little trust at first, but once you get used to them, they stick.

Any chance you'll get some larger sizes in? I'm in need of a 46 specifically.

Asked by: T O Double D
At the moment, we unfortunately will not be carrying a size 46 in the TC Pros. If you live near one of our retail stores, you might check to see if they can special order a 46 from La Sportiva.

Concerned with sizing, how much will these shoes stretch? They have a pretty unique lining. Can I expect a full size or half size stretch?

Asked by: wade550
Based on feedback, you can expect the TC Pro Climbing Shoes to stretch a half size.

Asked by: MMShark
