Sizing notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe. For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small I wear a women's 9 us/ 40 eu in most shoes but saw that these ran small. I ordered size 40.5 and they were still too small so I had to return them. The heel of the shoe also felt too low and could be annoying. But the shoes looked very functional and cute! I wish they would have fit.

Did the previous version of this shoe come in brown and mint green? I have that version and I want to buy it again but I can't read what the shoe was called because the label is worn.

Asked by: Samantha
We have sold a previous model of this shoe in brown with lime green accents.

When sizing for an approach shoe; should you size true to your regular shoe size or go a bit smaller, but not as small as you would for a true climbing shoe?

Asked by: Stacy
A snug fit is ideal for climbing, so we recommend your normal shoe size or a bit smaller if you would like this to perform more like a climbing shoe.

Asked by: Ruthie
Based on your US shoe size, we recommend a 40.5 EU size in these approach shoes.
