I used these on the lower and upper Exum Ridge on the Grand Teton. They are comfortable and if you get your normal shoe size in them you can squeeze a pair of socks in them when its cold. Didn't even unlace them between pitches.

    I purchased these shoes in an 8/8.5 US size. This is the size that I normally wear for my running shoes. Overall, i think these shoes are a half size smaller than what I should normally wear, but I just make sure I get out of my shoes every half hour when i'm at the climbing gym. I purchased the shoes on clearance, so I was limited by the sizes available, but I think this pair works for me. If you are in the market for these shoes, I would go up a half size from your normal shoes. The main problem for me is that my big toe on my right foot is a little smushed in the shoe, but i feel great when it comes to the left foot, and all the other toes on the right foot. Hopefully this helps!

    I just started climbing (semi) seriously and I got a pair. A couple of my roommates told me it us a good starting shoe and I got it for a really good price.

    Bought a new pair of these Scarpa Rock Climbing shoes, and chose a size 8, since my shoe size is about 8-8.5. The shoe appears to be quite tight on the 4th and 5th toes. I'm hoping it will stretch and loosen a bit after using.
    Material seems good tho.

    Haven't gotten a chance to try these on real rock yet but very happy with their performance at the gym. I usually wear an 8.5M or 9.5-10 W and got the 41.5 because it was the only size they had. It is a TIGHT fit; I do have a wide toebox, but I ordered Scarpas because they're supposed to accommodate that. My toes have gotten a little bloody once or twice, it was better after I showered in them a few times and stuffed them to dry. They're getting a little more bearable as they continue to break in, and I think it's them stretching a bit more rather than my feet losing all feeling. The rubber is good, the stitching is solid, and you can't beat laceups for adjustability and performance in my opinion. The heel rubs also, but a little paper tape fixes that real quick. I'm happy with these and they were a great deal for $45 here on STP, but I caved and ordered some Sportivas in a 42 for days when I'm happy to sacrifice high performance for intact toenails.

    I'm a 7.5-8. I first ordered these in a 39, but they were too small. I returned and got the 39.5 but they were still too small, my toes wouldnot lay flat. I returned them and went to another store where I got a different style from the same brand in size 39.5, which fit.

    • Due to the nature of the closeout business, we often receive items in limited quantities. Therefore, popular sizes and colors can sell out quickly. Occasionally we are able to reorder a product, but closeout items are typically unable to be reordered. We suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products.

About Scarpa

Scarpa of Italy was literally "born in a barn" back in 1951. Founder Luigi Parisotto launched his footwear career in a small outbuilding, crafting handmade shoes for locals with a nearly fanatical attention to detail. After cultivating a flawless reputation among his patrons, Luigi eventually switched from work boots to mountaineering boots, and Scarpa boots were born. Today, more than six decades later, Scarpa climbing shoes and mountaineering boots remain among the very best in the sporting industry. By fusing modern technology with an old-world attention to craftsmanship, Scarpa shoes and boots provide superior comfort for adventure-seekers who demand the absolute best. Experience a higher elevation of footwear performance.
