I am looking to get some new shoes. I climb mostly indoors, and I would like a stiffer sole(midsole) & some moderate downturn without sacrificing too much comfort. I have researched for a quite a bit(more like a ton!) and would like some Scarpa Feroces.
I am also interested in getting some La Sportiva Solutions, and am curious what a good size for those would be as Moosejaw is having a sale. Maybe 40.5, 41.0, or 41.5?
My street shoe size is 9.5(42.5). I currently have some Scarpa Reflexes size 9.0(42.0), which I do NOT recommend even to beginners. They were tight at first, but have stretched to PERFECT fit except a little dead space in the heel. They were actually pretty decent at first for me, but are now mushy and low-performance. The TAC-100 rubber is just awful(slippery & no stick).
Anyways I was just wondering if some people could shed some light on Scarpa sizing. It says half a size-2 down on their website for Scarpa. How do the Feroces size compared to the Reflexes? I heard the Feroces don't really stretch that much. Reflexes stretch about half a size.
I know I'm new to the forums, but any help on these two shoes soon
would be much appreciated since I will be ordering online.
