great shoes but sizing them is a pain

another review complaining about sizing a rock shoe on the interwebs...

let me defend myself: 1) five ten's sizing has been wildly inconsistent recently both model to model and years past to present. 2) i tried a size 10 which is what ive been wearing in five tens my last two pairs and they were at least A FULL SIZE too small. 3) i went up to an 11 (a half size larger than street shoe) and they are still borderline too small. 4) the heel of this shoe is extremely narrow and deep. I cannot get my heel down to the bottom of the shoe creating a small pocket of dead space meaning that if i heel hooked hard enough, i think i could pull these off (and rip my hamstring in the process).

id try them on as they are really sensitive, great rubber, and pretty cool looking. if they fit then go for them... if they fit.

Responded on

I am definitely with you on the sizing issue. I went for the same size as mu previous 5.10s and it was at least a half to full-size too small for my feet. Not a good feeling. Hopefully the exchanged pair will fit me better. Should have read your post before I purchased :/
