Best shoe ever for a narrow foot!!!!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 7.5/40
Bought a pair of these last fall and I have been bouldering in them for about 7 months now. I like to use an item for a while before I review it. First let me say that I have very skinny feet. My climbing partners call them "little skis". I have been climbing for about 14 years and have had many, many pairs of shoes. These are the first ones ever that fit my foot perfectly from heel to toe. I love, love, LOVE these shoes. I think these may be the narrowest climbing shoe on the market. They are certainly the narrowest shoe that I have tried. There are sooooo many things that I like about these shoes. Not only do they fit my foot perfectly, but they have very sticky rubber, an excellent heel for heel hooking, and lots of rubber on the toe making them great for toe hooking as well. And best of all, they are actually quite comfortable (for an aggressive climbing shoe). They have become my go to shoe for all bouldering and sport climbing. I have put them trough the paces on limestone, volcanic and even high country granite boulders. They work fantastic on all of these rock types. If you have narrow feet, get a pair of these!!! (If you have normal volume or high volume feet go with the HV model).
For sizing reference: I got these in a size 7.5 (US men's)/40 (EUR) and they fit VERY snug, but not painful. I wear a 7.5 - 8 in US women's street shoes, a 38.5 - 39 (EUR) in La Sportiva's, and a 39 - 39.5 (EUR) in Scarpa.
