I normally wear a size eight and a half in street shoes.my last pair of climbing shoes were too big since I got them in nine and a half so I purchased the shoes in a size 9. They are way too small - I can't even put weight on my feet without the nerves in my feet going off. Unfortunately I will have to take them back, so unless you have tried them on in person somewhere I recommend purchasing them in at least a size larger.

This shoe is definitely not for a beginner climber. I wear a street shoe 9, and the size 10 was still very very tight. It was fine for short climbs but definitely painful to walk around in. But overall, they are very well made and would be great for a more experienced climber.

I ended up selling these to a girl at my climbing gym with much smaller feet, or I would have returned them. She normally wears a size 7.5 shoe and the size 10 blackwings fit her. They were MUCH MUCH to small for me.

I was excited to find thise.... but this must have been a deformed batch... not just me... had others try them on. The heel pocket is way too deep. I even went down a couple sizes to where the front was WAY too tight and the heel pocket was still too deep.
