SARAH STOSICHwrote a review of La Sportiva Finale Climbing Shoe - Women's on April 11, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Sizing with climbing shoes can be tough, expecially as you will these shoes WILL stretch with use so it can be tough to tell if the right size is correct when they are brand new.
I tried on a size up from my true size, and it felt comfortable, but luckily I was at a demo, and the rep instructed me to go at least to my true size , if not a .5 size even smaller than that. After my first 10 uses with the shoe the fit is perfect! If I had gone with that larger size I would be super bummed that the fit isn't tight enough.
They are nice and grippy, and super comfortable. I know I'll be able to use these on a multi-pitch day, as I don't have to take them off between climbs in the gym. Comforatable to walk around in and super versatile on the wall.
So happy with these. Not too agressive, but have great fit, and of course look cute on my feet as an added bonus!
