Great first pair of shoes
These were my first pair of climbing shoes. I learned to climb in my school's gym, and was thrilled to not have to borrow shoes anymore. I went several sizes smaller than my normal shoes (I'm a size 11 for sneakers, but got an 8.5 for these), so they're very snug but not to the point of being painful. They also tend to stretch a bit after you wear them a bunch, so I'd definitely air on the side of smaller as opposed to larger.
