These shoes are very well made and the inside of them is very soft! Perfect for kids who are sensitive to scratchy clothing. They do run small though. My child wears a size 3 in Nike running shoes. The size 5 fit him in these climbing shoes. I sent back the 3 and ordered a 5 because they are so comfortable for him.

Great comfy shoes for kids
- I've used it several times
My kiddo is 9yrs old. Her last pair of climbing shoes were some Scarpa Thunder lace-ups (size 34), which she just outgrew. Things I've learned about climbing shoes for kids: make them easy to put on/take off, no laces, make them light, make them comfy. If you don't, you'll have a kid that runs around the gym bare foot. The Brava checked all the boxes. My daughter loves them. They are pretty much like slippers with climbing rubber underneath. I like the extra padding on the heel to make walking around with them comfy enough. They are well built and really designed for comfort. Great for kids that are casual climbers. A couple of things to be aware of: SIZING runs WAYYYY small. Kiddo is a Kid size 2 in street shoes. She couldn't get her feet into the Butora size 3. BC helped me change it to a size 5, which is barely a bit too big. Which is okay, because you can velcro the back for a tighter fit. The microfiber upper tends to collect chalk/dust. So those shoes get dirty fast. A Deep Water Soloing trip helped clean them up, but I suppose rinsing them under water will do the same thing. Thumbs up on those Butora.

Supreme softness for my little one
- I've used it several times
I have a 6 year old and she has worn a couple other kids shoes either as rentals or a pair that we bought for her. These are by far the most comfortable for her feet. The synthetic material is like a sock on her foot and she loves the low-profile and edging ability of them. As a parent, I love that I can buy them bigger and suck down the heel with the adjustable heel strap so in 6 months when she outgrows them, I'm not dumping more money into her hobby. They do run a about a size small, so buy a bigger size than you'd think

this question is in general to all kids climbing shoes, what units are used in the size options?

I'm not sure what size to get. My son is almost 3yo and has a foot size of toddler 8-9. Thanks, much appreciated!

Hi Elizabeth, The smallest size these come in is an 11, so these shoes would likely not work.
