I have tried on a friend's men's version...

Posted on

I have tried on a friend's men's version in a size 36 1/2, which fit pretty snug, but they were comfortable. The weird thing is I wear a US women's size 6 in street shoes and 6.5 in sneakers and hiking shoes. I've read many reviews that one should size down as much as two sizes. I can't imagine my foot fitting in a size 34. I am also a bit confused on the sizing. Is this Italian sizing? Because I thought a 36 is equivalent to a 6, and according to the La Sportiva size chart a 36 is actually a 5.5. I am pretty confused :). Any suggestions on the sizing for me?

order the size you know fits, return them if you dont like them and try another pair. backcountry will take them back.
