The raven is a sharply downturned shoe that is very similar to the Solution from LaSportiva. The fit is actually quite comfortable out of the box. They are a bit hard to get on but once you do, they are nice and snug. The heel cup is deep so it may not fit some feet. I have a tiny bit of dead space in the heel (the fit and velcro make it a non-issue for me) and a perfectly squeezed fit in the toe box.
Sizing: My street shoe is a 9.5-10 USA sizing and I returned these shoes twice to get the size right. I ended up with a USA 10
Other sizes I use for reference: 510 moccasym- 8.5usa, 510 Blackwing- 10usa, 510 Jet 7 -9.5usa, LaSportiva miura xsv velcro-8usa, 510 project-9.5usa
