Why We Like The Tarantulace Climbing Shoe
We like wearing the La Sportiva Tarantulace Climbing Shoe on long, easy-to-moderate multi-pitches, and we think it would make an excellent option for first-timers. This shoe prioritizes your foot's comfort to keep us focused on the climb instead of any discomfort. We picked this shoe for Utah's longest routes, and we still wear it at the gym whether we're bouldering or climbing ropes. As long as the walls are vertical, these shoes serve us well.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I ordered these online initially in my usual shoe size (Euro 42), but when I received them, found that they were huge on my feet! I had about 1-1.5" of extra space between my toes and the end of the shoe. I went to try on the shoes in person so I could exchange them for the correct size. I ended up exchanging for a pair that were 2.5 sizes lower than my usual shoe size (Euro 39.5). If you're able to try these on in person before buying, do it! I was also told by an associate that they have a tendency to loosen up and stretch to about a half size larger with use. They seem like great shoes so far now that I have the correct size!

- I returned this product before using it
- Size Bought:
- 5' 2"
Note* I did not use these to climb in. I wanted to leave a review to help those looking for the right size when ordering. I consistently wear a size 8 in women's and ordered a 8.5. So order a half a size up. They fit fine but the heel area hugged my heel a little too much and sat a little higher than other shoes I tried. I know if I kept them they would have likely rubbed my heels and left them blistered.
