Shoe Sizing Guide

Choosing the right size climbing shoe is the most difficult aspect of buying climbing shoes online - a pair of shoes that fit well will improve performance more than any other bit of equipment you own, and so getting the right size is important.

Because climbing shoes are designed to be snug, it's easy to think a shoe is too small when you first try them on, especially if when buying your first pair. Even a super tight shoe should 'break in' after a few weeks of use, but nonetheless it is important not to buy shoes too small. As every model and manufacturer fits slightly differently, we've put together a simple guide to all of our climbing shoes which will help you get the right fit first time. Just add or subtract the recommended number of sizes from your street shoe size for your desired fit.
