Looks good, but waaay small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The shoe looks like it could be a great shoe. Understanding that climbing shoes often run small, my daughter rents shoes at the gym that are 5.5 or a comfortable 6 depending on the shoe. She wears a size 4-4.5 street shoe and a size 5 soccer cleat that is a little big. The size 6 Raven is not even close. We weren't able to get it on her her foot without curling her toes and squeezing her achilles. We are going up 3-4 sizes from her street shoe.

Definitely want to size up!

Great shoe, but runs small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 9

These shoes run incredibly small - I wear a 7.5 in street size and ordered a 9, but probably would have been better off with a 9.5. That being said, they're awesome on small edges and do pretty well on overhangs. I only use them for indoor bouldering because it's too painful to wear them for the long routes outdoors, but they were great the few times I did take them outdoors (minus the pain, that is).

Great all round shoe

  • Fit: Runs small

I've had this shoe for about 8 months, I wear it a few times a week, inside and outside. I'd consider myself somewhere between a beginner and intermediate, and I boulder, crack climb and gym climb, and I wanted something that did it all. These shoes fit great, I agree with others that the sizing is off, but I don't know anyone that has ordered a pair of shoes without having to try on a few different sizes. Thanks to these shoes I have become much more confident in my feet. I would not consider these an aggressive shoe, but that's not how they are advertised, I got exactly what I was looking for.

Sizing is off

I regularly wear an 8.5 in shoe size and so I ordered that size. I understand that climbing shoes are usually not comfortable but these were way too small. I could barely put my feet in and when I did, I could not even walk with them on. Also these shoes are very rigid so I wouldn't expect them to stretch. I hope this helps. I am switching to a different model

Sizing is way off

  • Size Bought: 8.5 women's

We ordered these for my 11 year old daughter who regularly wears an 8.5 women's shoe size and rents this size at our local climbing wall. We thought these would be perfect for her but the sizing is way off. I would guess at least 2 sizes smaller. They actually fit my 9 year old who wears a 6 much better. We're going to go with another brand since it will be impossible to figure out what size she would need.
