Nice shoes but too smallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Lorin from New York on Friday, March 16, 2018These 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 stretchVerified Buyer Reviewed by anonymous from DC on Saturday, March 10, 2018I'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, 2018Can't comment on performance because they run really small even for climbing shoes... at least a full size.
Good shoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Climber from California on Friday, January 26, 2018Great beginner shoe.
Runs small for US sizeVerified Buyer Reviewed by New climber from New York on Tuesday, August 8, 2017This 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.
Great starter shoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by VA from Boston on Monday, August 7, 2017Shoe works great in a climbing gym. A little tighter than expected when they first arrived but am told they will stretch.
Good starter shoesVerified Buyer Reviewed by VA from Massachusetts on Friday, July 28, 2017No complaints about the shoes. Had to try a few different sizes out before I found the right fit. The size conversion chart was not too helpful in this case.
Great shoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Sherry from Arkansas on Wednesday, July 5, 2017Great shoe for beginner climbers!
Great ShoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Girly Climber from Chicago on Monday, July 3, 2017Great beginner shoe. Size is on point, quality is great, and they look really cute.
First Climbing ShoesVerified Buyer Reviewed by Peaches from Washington on Thursday, February 2, 2017I bought these shoes a half-size larger than I thought I needed- so far they have fit nice and snug! My one complaint about the size/fit is that the heel seems to have more room than I would like (that may be remedied if I got a 1/2 size smaller). But anyways they fit great and help with my climbing a ton :)
I am still breaking them in, but so far I am very happy about this purchase.

“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.”
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!
