Climbing Shoe Sizing
From your measured size, you'll want to consider downsizing .5 - 2 full sizes. The flatter the shoe, the closer to your measured size; the more downturned/aggressive the shoe, the more you'll want to downsize. The best fit is comparative between sizes and only you will be able to judge that, though an experience climber could offer good insights to your fit. If you are unsure of your correct size, call us today at 970-468-5687 or email us at email@example.com for expert fit assistance. If it feels painful, it may break in... or it may not. Pain sucks as a rule of thumb though and makes climbing miserable. Only you can judge what's 'acceptable' discomfort. Good fitting rock shoes shouldn't necessarily be 'comfortable' by walking/running shoe standards. Look for looseness/bagginess in the toes and heel. Bagginess can mean 'slop' when climbing with feet perspiring, etc.
Toes should completely fill the toebox. Heel should feel solid; like they won't pull off if heel hooking.Any foot movement in new shoes will mean sloppy fit when broken in.
