Ordered one full size smaller than actual foot size. Very tight so I sent the original ones back and exchanged for 1/2 size smaller than actual foot size. Would highly recommend this climbing shoe. As always Zappos customer service was phenomenal!

These are my first climbing shoe so take my comments with a grain of salt. Thick soles save the shoes from my noisy feet as a novice and there is a slight downturn in the shoe where my arches are. The high offset of the rubber make these great for bouldering. I purchased at my street shoe size (10.5 US) and my toes are slightly curved as they should be. Also, the heel cup was a bit loose when the shoes were new, but it seems my foot has settled in and there is no sliding or popping. These were not made for standing or walking so I only wear these while actively climbing. I'll take then off for belaying, etc. The unlined shoe and synthetic materials minimize odor and stretching, but you may wish to pick up some odor eaters or an equivalent. Overall, a great starter shoe and I'd purchase again. Just ensure they fit properly (which means uncomfortably when standing and toes should touch the top of the shoe)!

I demoed a few shoes yesterday at my gym. I have a fairly wide foot and usually wear a US men's 10 in a street shoe, 10.5 in the 5.10 Anasazis, and 11.5 in the Evolv Talons. After 2 routes, I found these shoes to be ridiculously slick. I felt completely unstable and my feet slipped off holds repeatedly. They are very comfortable, but the stickiness of the rubber killed it for me.
