Pricey but great shoes

Got these to take the kid climbing outdoors. Great shoes.

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

The sizing on these is an absolute joke. I would say these are at least 2 or 3 sizes under accurate. I bought an EU29/UK10.5 and couldn't get them in my 2 year olds feet, and he's an 8.

Nice but small

Come up small, by bigger

Children's climbing shoes

These shoes are great for children. They fit nicely & smear well. The elastic on the sides of the shoe could do with being a little firmer to hold the foot more firmly inside the shoe. The addition of a strap & buckle around the heal would be of benefit. If this strap was added this shoes would achieve a perfect score from us.

Very small sizing

My daughter is UK1/EU33 ... the shoes that arrived are at least three sizes too small!

Hi Ash,

I am sorry that the Rock Junior Climbing Shoes did not fit your daughter correctly.

With climbing shoes they will generally be quite a 'snug' fit but not painful. These ones do also have an elastic back that allows them to stretch so your daughter can keep them for longer.

If you take them back to your local store they will be able to arrange and exchange or refund for you. The Junior Rock Climbing Shoes do go to a 2.5 though a number of Simond's adult shoes do go down to a 1.5:

I hope this helps.

Slightly large but as expected!

Good product for the money, both my kids love having their own climbing shoes! Got a size larger as knew they were a tight fit and worked out perfectly. Definitely would recommend as a starter shoe!

Sizing recommendations

Caution! This shoe sizes small. If your child is a beginner, we recommend choosing a shoe 2 sizes larger than their normal size. If your child is intermediate, we recommend choosing a shoe 1 size larger than their normal size. Your child's foot should feel relatively tight but shouldn't hurt. This is important to avoid injury

Care instructions

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.
