Not a new question: how do you size your moccasyms for sandstone cracks?

For cracks I'm currently in a size 10 Anasazi VCS (10.5 street shoe) that leaves a little play in the heel cup, but the shoe is tight on the Achilles and snug in the toes (but not curled). What do you think? Same size for the mocc? Half size down?

I love Mocs and wore them a half size down for a while then switched to my street size. Mocs stretch like crazy, but that is a bit contingent on how much strain they are under (i.e. Tighter= more stretch). If you are planning to climb thin cracks, try street size. For me, they fit snug and stretch a bit and end up being perfect, but I could probably still get away with a half size down. Like I said, they stretch like mofos

I got a half size down. They stretched and now fit perfectly. I feel like they'll be too loose if I got my street size. There's no laces or velcro to latch them on to your foot, so they better be snug to stay on!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
