Like the other reviewer mentioned, these shoes do fit tight. I am a guy who wears size 12.5/13 street shoes, and I ordered these climbing shoes in 13.5. I am glad that I did because even 13.5 fits tight. Yes, I know that your toes are supposed to curl in climbing shoes, but they should still feel comfortable.

I am stuffing mine with newspaper, which will hopefully help the rubber relax. It's high quality rubber, but by sitting in a box the rubber has shriveled. This makes the fit seem even tighter. Maybe after a few climbs it won't be as bad.

These shoes are definitely a bargain at $40. Just do yourself a favor and order them larger than you normally would.

By the way, the color is a purple/blue, and it changes depending on the lighting.


Fits 1/2 to 1 full size smaller than 5.10 climbing…
