Sizing notes

All Scarpa non-plastic footwear uses European sizing. • 1 Euro whole size = 6.6 mm = 0.26 inches • 1 US whole size = 8.4 mm = 0.33 inches • The 30 Euro sizes above cover the same size range as 24 US sizes. • More Euro sizes provide a better, more precise fit for your intended use. Rock Shoes: Scarpa recommends you downsize 1/2 to 2 full sizes from street shoe size, though downsizing depends on shoe model, intended use and personal preference. Mountaineering: Scarpa recommends you upsize 1/2 size or more depending on desired fit. Scarpa plastic mountaineering boots are based on the UK sizing scale. Ski Boots: All Scarpa ski bootsare measured in Mondo sizing. Highlighted (or not) sizes share the same shell size; the liners are lasted for each 1/2 size. Some skiers may want to downsize up to 1 full Mondo size, depending upon personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beginner shoes These were my first pair of climbing shoes, and so far I'm very happy with them. I've worn them a few weeks, and they did stretch out/mold to my feet just a little bit- so if you're deciding between sizes, pick the smaller one. They run relatively true to street shoe sizes. These were the only shoes that fit my feet. I have slightly narrower feet with long-ish toes, so the laces that extend far down the shoe were useful and gave a snugger fit than velcro versions. The heel feels like a dream. The do turn your toes kind of orange, but it comes off easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes! I am new to climbing, and purchased these as my first pair of shoes. I have used them twice a week for 3 months now indoor, and once outdoor on 5.7 and 5.8 slab climbing. They are holding up really well, and they are great even on the teeny tiny footholds in the gym in addition to smearing. I wear a size 9 women's street shoe, and purchased these in size 8 2/3 (US women's size). They are tight and I have to loosen the laces all the way to get them on, but they are comfortable climbing. I do tend to take them off when I am belaying to give my feet a break, but it's not always necessary. Overall great shoe and I would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe I'm a beginner climber. Finding a pair of shoes that fit was a pain in the rear end. My heel always slipped out of the shoe, even if the shoe fit properly at the toes. I tried multiple brands and styles, none worked. These Scarpas were my life-saver. They not only fit my heel, but also the rest of my foot. Over the last couple of weeks, they've stretched enough that they're a comfortable fit for a couple hours at the gym. The laces are annoying to take the shoe on and off, but considering the shoe actually fits my foot shape, I'll take it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beginner shoe! I just started climbing about four months ago and after lots of deliberating, chose this shoe. I stuck to my street size shoe and did not size down, despite advice from the dudes at REI. I can see their point, but being relatively new to climbing already, I didn't really want to spend my first few weeks in utter pain. I'm glad I didn't size down because although the shoes molded to my feet a bit, they certainly didn't give very drastically and were already quite snug to begin with. I love that they lace instead of velcro - I don't like to take my shoes off during the duration of climbing and it provides a nice, tight fit. The suede material of the shoe feels forgiving on your feet. This has been a great shoe to help me get acclimated to climbing and the price is fair for a beginners investment. Now that I'm hooked on bouldering, I do want a more aggressive shoe and so will be shopping for something different soon... the one big con of this shoe is the missing spots of rubber on the heel. It might make the fit feel better but when you're heel hooking, it kinda sucks/hurts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for beginner and upwards I got these as my first pair of climbing shoes as I was tired of paying the rental fee. Have worn them for about 6 months now. They were "comfortable" from the start (as comfortable as climbing shoes should be) and have molded to my feet since. I tape a few of my toes due to the uncomfortable rubbing of the seam where the rubber meets the leather, but this is not an inconvenience to me and it doesn't bother me once taped. I boulder and top rope/lead in these, and even leading on 5.11 routes in the gym these are more than capable. I have also worn them outdoors on two long days of trad climbing and they were comfortable the whole time and I was able to get my toes on those tiny bits of rocks in the Gunks. Solid shoe, and I don't see myself needing anything more advanced until I start doing a lot of overhung routes with tiny feet. Small note: when I first bought them I remember the heel pinched in and caused a good amount of pain on one foot. I'm glad I took the salesman's advice and tried them out anyway, as that subsided within the first few days of climbing. For reference, I have narrow feet and very narrow heels, so the lacing is great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I am so happy with this shoe. I'm normally a size 6 (37) but had to go all the way up to a size 39 so I would recommend going into the store to try on before you buy. So far no complaints, I love the fit and the color.
