So, I've been bitten by the climbing bug. I'm looking to get some used shoes I can put some tear into as I learn instead of continuing to rent. I tried on some Women's La Sportiva Tarantulace the other day and those fit great at 42.5. So far I've been renting Women's 11's from the gym I go to. 

If you have a pair of old shoes lying about you'd like to get rid of in this size, let me know. I'll be using them primarily in the gym, and am hoping to start venturing outdoors when things warm up. Naturally, I'm looking to keep expenses low starting out, and this seems like the best option :)

Those may be a bit tight (and perhaps wide by the look?) for me, but thanks for sharing as an option @Gunkiemike.

Just posted a pair of Tenaya Masai here:

They're size 44, but I wear a 42.5 in most La Sportiva shoes and 44 in these. A bit on the narrow side for what that's worth. Let me know if you're interested or have questions.

I have a size 43 Sportiva gym shoe that is narrow but longer than I wanted. Also a pair of sportiva finales in a 42 but fairly broken in. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
