Love this shoe

I cannot say enough good things about this shoe. They are light a monkeys foot on steep overhangs, edge well, smear fantastically, and the heel cup heel hooks like a dream. They have become my every climb shoe, and I rarely regret it ;p
I have these in a 43 which is about half a size US down from my regular shoe size. The toe box on my left foot is a bit tighter than perfect, and as it doesn't really stretch out, it will always be so.
If you find the Solutions to be a bit uncomfortable, than I would highly recommend looking into either these or the Testarossa.

Comparing street shoe size is a bit hopeless. I size mine 1.5 euro/1 US size down from street size. Scarpa is about 1 Euro - 1 US size smaller than the equivalent Sportiva shoe (so add 1 Euro size to Sportiva models to get equivalent size). One thing to keep in mind is the Mago breaks in very fast. How it initially feel will be very different from how it'll feel after a few pitches.
