Split-leather upper, lined for comfort?

When a climbing shoe descriptions says "Split-leather upper, lined for comfort" does that mean it won't stretch much at all?

Or would it be somewhere in between unlined leather upper (Mocs for example) and Synthetic (White Mocs with no stretch for example)?

How does a shoe being lined on leather affect its stretchability?

A shoe being lined can affect the stretch quite a bit. I would buy the shoe with the intention of it stretching 0-1/4 size. It might end up a tad more than that. Some might end up more than that, but in my experience that's about what you can expect.
