I am new to climbing and recently purchased a pair of those Mad Rock toe crushers. I returned them shortly after trying them on. OUCH!!!! How do people wear those things? That's like asking Shaq to fit inside a Voltswagon Bug. I searched for a climbing shoe that fit more like my street shoe and I came across these Five Ten Lace-Ups. Wow, what a great climbing shoe for the first timer. I wear a size 12 street shoe and I purchased these babies a size smaller. They do take a little getting used to, but they will stretch. I purchased a second pair of these a half size smaller this time with a much better overall fit and comfort.
