Kate Pwrote a review of So Ill Holds Street Climbing Shoe on November 9, 2016
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
I just received these shoes and they felt very soft and comfortable despite being so aggressive. According to their website (http://soillholds.com/collections/climbing-shoes/products/the-street-pre-release) it says that women should order a size down from their street shoe size, so since I wear an 8.5 I ordered a 7.5. I put them on and the first thing I noticed was that I could lift my heel up and down without the shoe even moving, it was that loose! Heel hooks were definitely not going to be a possibility. Part of the problem might be that the top velcro closure is lower on my feet than the top closure of any of the other shoes I own. Despite that they felt pretty good and I am going to try them a half size and a full size down from what I got to see if that solves this. I'll update when I try the smaller shoes to see if it fixed these problems.
