These are my first climbing shoes for indoor bouldering and climbing. I had been wearing a 40.5 in gym rentals so bought the same in these. The fit is definitely tight and painful in the heel right now. I had the gym owner look at them and he said the technology in these force your foot towards ... Read More

  • Nice shoes but too small
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lorin from New York on Friday, March 16, 2018
    These shoes look nice but definitely run way small. I normally wear a 5.5-6 in street shoes and got these in a 38. I couldn’t even get my foot into them at all.
  • small but will stretch
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by anonymous from DC on Saturday, March 10, 2018
    I'm typically a size 7 (US women), but i sized down to a 37.5. These shoes were extremely tight when I first tried them on, but after a few climbing sessions they've started to loosen up.
  • Run Very Small!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eugene Runner from Oregon on Sunday, February 11, 2018
    Can't comment on performance because they run really small even for climbing shoes... at least a full size.
  • Good shoe
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Climber from California on Friday, January 26, 2018
    Great beginner shoe.
  • Runs small for US size
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by New climber from New York on Tuesday, August 8, 2017
    This shoe runs small if you base it on the US Sizing Chart. I wear a US Size 8 in gym rentals, but it's a European size 41. (My sneaker shoe size is 7.5) When ordering these shoes, it said Size 8 was a 39.5, so I got the 39.5. When I got it, it was way too tight so I had to return it and reorder a 40.5. The new ones fit well, nice and snug as they should be. So, if you're basing it on the European shoe sizes, I would say those run true to size. However, if you are basing it on US sizing, I would go one whole size up.

    As for the comfort of the shoe, the heel of the shoe rubs up on the Achilles and is really painful, and can easily cause a blister. My solution was wearing figure skater Bunga pads.

    Sierra Trading Post credited me immediately when I made my return, so I was able to order my new shoes even before I mailed my old ones back. Got my new ones in no time.

    Despite the flaws, I would say for the price of it, it's a good beginners shoe.

  • “What size should I get if I normally wear a size 8.5 in regular shoes if these run small. Plus other retailers apparently have different sizing standards.”
    Asked by Amanda K from NM on 1/12/2017 7:44:20 PM
    • Always the eternal question with climbing shoes. Hopefully, I can provide some perspective here: I wear a 39 in these, and I tend to wear a womens 7-7.5. I'd recommend trying on scarpa shoes at an in person store, and then sizing up at least a half size for these, depending on how you like them to fit. Fortunately, with SierraTradingPost's exchange policy, it's not too expensive to get another size. Unfortunately, you kind of just have to make an educated guess and use that as your starting point.

    • I wear an 8.5 shoe (sometimes an 8), and I bought a 39.5 for these climbing shoes. They are perfect for me. If you wear a solid 8.5 shoe size, I might suggest buying a size 40 instead. Good luck!

    • I wear a size 9 and ordered 40.5. The box says they are a 8 2/3. They were extremely tight at first, but they do stretch because there is no liner. I wore them in the shower and climbed in them while still wet, then stuffed them with newspaper to keep them stretched. The technology forces the toes towards the front of the shoe, so when not climbing they are tight on the heel (Achilles) and my great toe has a slight bend. There are slits in the rubber at the toe to prevent pain at the joint. They also bow out at the ankles. When climbing and pressure is put on the toes, all this completely disappears and they fit perfectly. I also put moleskin in the heel to prevent blisters from the stitching. My coach at the gym said these shoes have crazy technology and were nice high end shoes. I LOVE them. I think you could get a size 40 and be happy.

    • Personally, I normally wear a 8.5-9 and have wide feet and I got a 8 2/3. They fit great - nice and snug as climbing shoes should be. I hope that gives you something to go off of!

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.
