Most Helpful 4-Star Review
Reviewed by Epsilon from San Francisco on Thursday, September 25, 2014Wasn't sure what my fit was for Scarpa, but I wear a 37 in every pair of La Sportiva climbing shoes I've tried on, and have even sized down to a 36.5 when I want a really tight fit. Ordered these in a 37 and couldn't even get my foot in. They didn't look super down-turned to me, but seemed like they'd be solid shoes if only they fit.
Reviewed by blafrisch from Raleigh on Friday, July 25, 2014I bought these shoes for my wife in size 8 (US women's) and she normally wears a 7.5 street shoe. They are a little snug but not overly tight, given a couple of weeks the leather will likely loosen and she'll have to wear socks with them which she actually prefers so that's not a bad thing. The reason these aren't a 5-star though is because of the heal: while they do fit otherwise the heal is a little loose on the sides but for the price we're not going to return them.
Reviewed by sport weenie from colorado on Friday, January 10, 2014I bought these because the velcro on my other sport climbing/bouldering shoes was not sticking any more. I have other Scarpas and I find their sizing very inconsistent. I managed to order the correct size in these on the first try which was great (I wear 36 katana/miura , 36.5 scarpa force... I bought these in 37.5). They do come up pretty high on my ankles (i.e. are not really women's specific - but almost no climbing shoes are actually cut different for women except evolv - at least as far as I can tell); but they perform very well. They also fit really well around my toes (I do not have morten's toe) and the leather doesn't seem to want to bunch up above the toes - which is a problem in my miuras.
Now that I've found these I'm a bit sad they are discontinued.
Reviewed by T from San Francisco on Saturday, October 19, 2013My normal size is a 7, I already got the tip from my friend to order them a bit larger, but they are still too small. My toes won't even manage to stay straight. I regret buying them as now I also have the burden of returning them.
