Climbing Shoes

We like them snug, but not too tight! OUCH! Feel free to call us at 1-877-48-CLIMB. Our staff can help with sizing advice.

  1. From your measured size, you'll want to consider downsizing 0.5 - 2 full sizes. The flatter the shoe, the closer to your measured size. The more downturned/aggressive the shoe, the more you'll want to downsize.
  2. Pain sucks. If you're not used to climbing shoes, as a rule of thumb, it's better to find a snug fit, otherwise climbing would feel miserable. Only you can judge what's an "acceptable" discomfort.
  3. The best fit is comparative between sizes and only you will be able to judge that, though an experienced climber could offer good insights to your fit.
  4. Good fitting rock shoes shouldn't necessarily be "comfortable" by walking or running shoe standards.
  5. Look for looseness/bagginess in the toes and heel. Bagginess can mean "slop" when climbing with feet perspiring, etc.
  6. Toes should completely fill the toebox.
  7. Heel should feel solid. Make sure they don't pull off when heel hooking.
  8. Any foot movement in new shoes will mean sloppy foot technique when broken in.
