Most Helpful 4-Star Review
Almost like Lasportivas were made for graniteVerified Buyer Reviewed by FFCG from California on Sunday, July 15, 2018These shoes, like most Lasportivas I've had, are super sticky in granite. I really like the more "relaxed fit" of the flatter last. As they are unlined leather, I did buy them 1/2 size smaller than what I would normally wear. If I wanted them as performance shoes, I would've gone down a full size.
I think Lasportivas run pretty large. I ordered a 33.5 for my all day trad shoes (they're tight out of the box). My performance sport climbing scarpas are 35.5. My normal, everyday shoe, the 5.10 LV Anasasis, were also 35.5s (haven't bought a pair since Adidas bought them, so the fit and sizing may have changed).
Overall, a nice shoe, and I love how they feel on granite. They jam well, as well as smear. I'd say the edging is so so. I wish the heel fit a bit higher. It's a bit uncomfortable for me, but they aren't broken in yet, and I have strange heels.

“Has anyone ordered these and tried them on? I'm looking for sizing instructions. I have a size 9.5 or 10 shoe size.”
Is that mens or womens size? If it's mens you'll likely want a 40.5-41.5 depending how tight you like your shoes. These are real leather and will stretch at least a half size in a few weeks of climbing.
