I wear a street size 12 and bought this shoe a full size below (11) and man was it tight - I had to use plastic bags to get my feet in. I wore it in the shower a few times, and after a couple of bouldering sessions it's starting to break in. It's got a super positive feel on very small jibs, though they're not particularly sensitive - I haven't had them long enough to say if the sensitivity is going to increase once they're fully broken in. As is usual, I thought I'd maybe gotten them too small, but now I think that they're going to be perfect. These are better for narrow feet, I think - when I compare them to the Sportiva shoes (Solutions, Futuras, etc) the toe box feels a lot narrower, curling my last two toes completely underneath.
As of now, I feel like I could bear down on anything, ready to do some hard boulders!
