Reviewed by Hidinginthelight from Florida on Sunday, April 26, 2015I got the size 10's for my boyfriend who wears an 8.5 normal shoe. He couldn't even get his foot in them. I wear a women's size 6, so I tried these and they were too big. They'd probably fit a woman's 7.5 to 8. I couldn't even begin to guess what men's size this really is.
Reviewed by Justin Jug from Burlington on Friday, February 27, 2015I have had these shoes since the middle of October. I ordered the size I wear in normal everyday shoes (11|44.5) and they felt really tight and took about 2 weeks to break in (I climb 3 times a week). Now it is the end of February and they have two small holes in the front, not large enough to throw away but large enough where I can feel the wall with my big toe. They are great shoes really comfortable once broken in but they didn't even last a year.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by MT_Z from Bend, OR on Thursday, December 18, 2014I like these shoes. Too bad STP doensn't have my size. I normally wear a 9.5 (the climbing shoe size I use when I rent at the gym, and my street shoe size) and ordered that; it was WAY too small. I then ordered a 10.5 and still, way too small. Since they don't have any larger options, I'm returning them but I would have liked to own these.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from PA on Wednesday, August 27, 2014Nice shoes! Buy 1 size larger than you usually wear - they run small.
Reviewed by Tedinski from Pennnsylvvania on Saturday, August 16, 2014Had to send these back for a set 2 sizes larger than I normally wear.
Perhaps the sizes are women's sizes instead of men's?
They seem sticky & flexible. I'm looking forward to using them further.

Sizing is for men's fit
If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes the corresponding numeric size will be displayed in both male and female sizes.
The sizing is supposed to be US men's sizing. On the product description page showing the list of available sizes, if you hover the mouse pointer over a given size it displays the female sizing equivalent, e.g., M 10.5 = F 12.
The sizing for this model runs small. I wear a men's size 10 street shoe and I bought a size 10.5. Even so the shoes were almost too tight to be usable. I cannot wear them in an alpine setting because after 15 minutes they cause too much pain from squashing my toes. In the rock gym where I can take my heels out when I am taking my turn belaying it is not a problem. I have been using these shoes twice a week for a few months and they have not stretched out much. By design, rock shoes are sized to be tight but these shoes appear to be sized tighter than other brands I have bought.
So assuming that the female shoe equivalent sizes are consistent (this chart might help you verify: http://www.zappos.com/measure-your-shoe-size) you can hover the mouse pointer over the sizes until you find your size. Depending upon how tight you like your rock shoes you would probably want to go with a half or full size over your street shoe size.
