Hey guys-

I have never tried on boreal shoes and was wondering if anyone had any sizing recommendations before I order some online.

Here are my current climbing shoe sizes for various brands of shoes:

Evolv: 10.5
La Sportiva: 42
Scarpa: 43

Thanks in advance! Justin

I wear a 42.5 in TC pros, 42 in a Katana, 43 in Scarpa and the 8.5(UK) size Ace and Ballet fit me well. If you can return them, order +/- one half size around that UK8.5 and you'll find one that works.

Great shoes, shit rubber. Ace+C4 is becoming one of my favorites.

I've been climbing exclusively in either Aces or Ballet Golds for many years. I wear 8 1/2 street shoe, and 8 1/2 Ace/Ballet Gold.

I've ordered online and never had an issue with the shoes not fitting.

They are pretty consistent with their sizing.

As mentioned above, their rubber sucks! (Both the Fusion and Quatro). But once resoled with a better rubber? Fuck yeah! Now you're talking!
