Great shoes. I'm always impressed with the quality of Scarpa shoes. Unfortunately these were sized too small (I wear the exact same size in other Scarpa shoes) so I had to return them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again in a larger size.

they are nice, lightweight and tight in the heel. only problem i see so far is the nasty glue stains or something on the toe part of the shoe...and it does not have the rubber piece covering the toe like they show in he pictures. other than that seem nice. cant wait till they break in a little.

First off, I am glad I read the reviews about size before I bought these. I usually wear a 38 (US 7.5) and ordered at 38.5 instead, which Scarpa considers a US 7 1/3. Scarpa has a conversion chart that should guide you to the right size. That said...
I love these shoes. Very tight at first, but after a week they were comfortable enough to wear on a 4-day climbing trip at Rumney. I've already noticed a huge improvement in my climbing, and I find I'm praying for heel hooks on any climb because they're just so easy to nail in this shoe. My only complaint is that I don't like lace-ups but I'm willing to overlook that detail based on the great performance of this shoe.
Best Uses: Bouldering, Indoor, Long Climbs, Outdoor

They look different on the picture, actually they are much more curved. Bought them for long routes. But they are definitely not desined for that. Great for bouldering. Good performance, I like the fit. For this kind of shoes every 1/5 size does matter, and sierratradinpost is not very exact with sizing for those shoes. Instead go to [...], find your european size, then buy them at sierratrading. I'm size 7,5, ordered 38,5 (at [...] my european should be 39). They are very tight for me, started wearing in, but at the cost of few paifull weeks. Not gonna return.

I understand that climbing shoes should fit snugly, but these are sized extrememly small. I wear a 6W in street shoe so going by other comments, I ordered several sizes - the largest size I tried was a 38.5 and even then the shoe painfully dug into my achilles tendon, and my toes were severely curled under to the point of toe-knuckle bruising. Finally went with the Scarpa Veloce - a much more comfortable fit - in a size 37.
