Love the shoes!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 41
I love these shoes. I had a pair of Tarantulace shoes I wore out that were almost the same... - these fit the same as my old ones without the cumbersome laces. :) I was excited to get velcro to help me get them on and off faster when climbing. They are super comfy! I use them as my comfortable climbing shoes that I can wear for longer if needed. They aren't aggressive climbing shoes... but when I need comfort, they do the job. I have other shoes that are more aggressive that I use when doing harder climbs. I use them in the gym a lot. I have a really hard time finding climbing shoes that fit nicely and these fit great; -I have a wide toe box and they fit perfect. I sized down two sizes from my street shoes so my toes have a curl in them. I have friends who only size down 1 size in these shoes, so I guess if you're trying to figure out what size to get... I'd start with sizing down 1. Hope this review helps! Love the shoes! :) Thanks La Sportiva and Backcountry! :)
