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 5 out of 5 by from First Pair I have had these for about a month. I got them one week after discovering rock climbing (because I fell in love with it!) The rubber is a little sticky. The soul is good support. These have stretched slightly but they fit fantastic! I can wear them for hours with minimal pain. They don't come loose at all on heel hooks. I usually wear 10-9 in regular shoes, but I went down to a 8.5 for these. I am working on climbing at 5.10b while top roping and they are working fantastic. I don't really boulder in these so I can't give how well they'd work with bouldering. P.S. I get so many compliments on how they look. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but runs smaller than its previous model I bought these shoes a couple months back, and thus far served me well for indoor bouldering and top roping. The laces are great for climbers who have narrow feet and/or high arches and want an all-encompassing, embracing hug from their climbing shoes. That being said; this shoe runs 1/2 size smaller than its previous model. After months of wear, even with my hopes of them stretching, they crush my toes much more than I would have hoped! For reference, my street shoe size is a women's 9, I ordered a 39, but I should have ordered a 39.5! Despite minor sizing issues on my end, they are still serve me well on the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid rock shoe Bought these a month ago for indoor and outdoor climbing, and I trust my feet so much more with them than with the shoes I was wearing previously. I don't like laces because it's such a hassle to take them off between climbs, but these are worth it because they fit my narrow feet very well (sized down as with any rock shoe). They've stretched a tiny bit but only to fit better. I like them for bouldering (which I've only done in the gym) and sport climbing (both in the gym at at the Red), and I'm comfortable using the heel and smearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ballerina climbing I'm graceful as heck in these climbing shoes. On point like a ballerina. I didn't want laces originally, but I'm able to get a more molded fit with laces. I went a size down. I recommend trying a size or two smaller. The important fit is on the arch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good friction, minimal break-in time Bought these for a trip to yosemite about a year ago and was psyched with the result. They stuck to slabs and felt solid in cracks of every size. I wore them all day first go-round and had no blisters. The lace ups are great for fitting to your foot, but make it better for a multipitch day rather than sport. The only reason for 4 stars is that the heel can be a bit harsh at times. I have an impressive callus. I wear a 6.5 street shoe and bought 37.5 Finales because I like it a little roomy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid shoe Bought these because I was tired of borrowing from friends for outdoor trips. They work great for all climbing in all conditions. I mostly boulder and toprope (both outside and in) and these get the job done for both. I usually wear 8/8.5 and I sized down to a 7.5 - they stretched out a bit with more wear. Super happy with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beginner climbing shoe These are my first pair of climbing shoes and I love them. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. The grip is great and the angle of the toe is not too advanced. I also like the laces better than the Velcro straps. No more rentals for me! Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and efficient I've had these since December, started climbing a month or two before that. I couldn't find a tight fit for my narrow feet in the other beginner-level shoes I tried on from La Spo or similar brands like Butora, Scarpa, etc, but these fit perfectly. Tight and molded to my feet (and the laces help), and comfortable enough. The grip is excellent. Get these a size smaller than your normal shoe size. I take them off in between climbs as most people do, and have not had any complaints since I got em. Added plus—they're cute. Highly recommend!
