These shoes have been a good inexpensive alternative to renting shoes at the climbing gym.
Size wise these shoes do not really seem to be pre down sized. Initially I ordered a half size larger than my street shoe size and the shoes were too big. (These are climbing shoes and your toes should at a minimum be touching the front of the shoe + these shoes do stretch a little bit)
A great all around comfortable shoe that is precise enough for your next gym session. Features double stitch construction, padded collar and heel, polypropylene midsole and one-piece binding. Size up for a comfort fit and size down for a more aggressive performance fit but keep in mind that climbing shoes are supposed to fit very tight and at a minimum your toes should be touching the end of the shoe. Your toes will be curled a bit if you buy a size down for a more performance fit. The shoes come pre downsized! We recommend for new climbers to go up a FULL size from their street shoe size.
