These are great shoes. I've tried on tons of brands and models in my search for a shoe I can leave on between pitches and most of them irritate my achilles or have dead space that causes my foot to slip around. The Luchadors are amazingly comfortable right out of the box and have performed very well... Read More

    I've only worn them in the kitchen so far. I wear a women's 7.5 (or 38) in normal shoes. In these, a 8.5 is probably right (hurts a little all the way around). These have a stiff sole that makes my feet feel supported (less stress on my big toe joint), and are wide enough for my wide fee.

    These shoes are really great. They run a little small, however, they have really grippy rubber and fit well. A well made functional shoe.

    These are my first climbing shoes that I have purchased. They are definitely a step up from the shoes you can rent from the indoor climbing shoes. They are very tight but work great!

    Unless you are very familiar with aggressive climbing shoes and like having your feet hurt after 10 minutes in your shoes, SIZE UP from your street shoe size.

    I wear 7.5 to 8 in Vans, I sized these up to 9.5 to get a fit that I could wear for about 30-40 minutes before I feel like I want to give my feet a break. I also wear 7.5 in Tarantulas for a comfortable, all day kind of fit, if that helps give an idea of where I'm at.

    As these are lace-ups, you will probably not want to have to take them off every 10 minutes; if you're looking for that get shoes with Velcro straps.

    These shoes have synthetic uppers so don't expect much, if any, stretching.

    I wear a women's size 11 in street shoes, and tried these in a size 10 (i.e. went up half a size). The velcro makes it easy to put on, and the heel shape fit nicely (not too high), but they were far to short and cramped in the front. They made my toes not just curl, but overlap each other. Had to return, but I would try a larger size.

  • “Are the sizes listed for this shoe US men's sizes or women's sizes?”
    Asked by Haglund's Deformity from NY on 6/18/2017 7:17:51 PM
    • That's a good question. Because I'm a 10 street shoe size and my Luchadors are size 11, which is abnormal for a climbing shoe. However, I would confidently say those listed are closer to "men's" sizes than the alternative. I think I had to send back two pair before finding the right size.

    • I wear a women's 7.5 normally (eur 38) and I wear an 8.5 in these. First few times I've worn them they are squishing my toes, but otherwise the shoes are super comfy and I love them. They are good for wide feet.
