HOW TO GET A PERFECT FIT FOR BUTORA SHOES

Over recent years it has become common place for climbers to try to squeeze their feet into the smallest size shoe, possible. Equating pain with performance. The Butora ("boo-toh-rah") Brand is built around the belief that it doesn’t have to be painful to perform.

Butora has outlined their Sizing standard below, as well as a few suggestions for each shoe:

Butora shoes are based on your street shoe size. They don’t care what you wear in other brands. They care what you wear when you want performance and comfort.

  1. Orange Acro – High Volume Wide Fit – This high volume, wide fit shoe fits true to your street shoe for steep sport climbing. Size a 1/2 size down from your street shoe for bouldering. This shoe has a ton of rubber over the toe, so if fit properly, it will have very minimal stretch. It will meld to your foot and reshape a bit to your contours, so it fits perfectly, but it will not stretch unless you shove your foot into a size way too small. If you have any pain, go up a half size.
    Example: Street Shoe: US 9. Tight fit – 8.5. Comfortably tight – 9.
  2. Blue Acro – Low Volume Narrow Fit - This low volume, narrow fit shoe fits true to your street shoe for steep sport climbing. Size a 1/2 size down from your street shoe for bouldering.
