Starter shoe

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these for my ex-boyfriend, he loves them. They're a great starter shoe and the first pair he's ever owned. Originally we were going to go with the mythos because those are the sort of shoe you'll use forever but we settled on these, he's got super long toes and these gave him a little more space and didn't pinch as much. He wears a 12 1/2 street shoe and went with the 44.5 (11's) for these. If you have normal feet, you could probably go down another 1/2 size, but his toes were too long.
Stoked on the shoes, they're perfect for someone who's new to climbing and wants a comfortable shoe that's the quality of la sportiva. I'd definitely recommend them to others.
