Awesome Trad Shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ive been climbing in the Astromans the past week. This is an awesome all day trad shoe. I wear an 11 - 11.5 street shoe and bought a 44.5. The 44 was too small. They are a nice stiff shoe but very comfortable, slightly stiffer than the TC Pros. They have stretched about a 1/4 size so far. I just crank down on the laces a bit more then when they were new. My feet are average width and find the Astromans are not too narrow and not too wide.

I wish Backcountry would list the EU size next to the US size...
