Fits well, I was scared to order climbing shoes. Totally went to REI to try these on tho... :)
First climbing shoes don't have to be as tight as more experienced climbers.
I chose the size that was a bit uncomfortable but nothing I couldn't ignore.
I only experienced real discomfort on the back left ankle area from the shoe rubbing. No blister but redness and pain.
I wear a size 8 in basically most shoes. My left foot is slightly bigger than my right foot. Euro size is usually 38.5/39 and I got the 38.5.
Online it says that's a women's 7.5 and a men's 6.5. On the tag inside the shoe it says 6.5 and it confused me when I finally got to use the shoes a while later. But they fit well enough!

Good shoe but not great,
These shoes were ok, I ordered them in a 36M ( I usually wear street shoe size 7). I tried these out and while they worked ok the back where my heel was dug into my foot to much to the point where I could not keep them on for more than 2 min intervals. The shoe size fit well I just did not like the feel of the shoe.
I ended up getting the Scarpa Women's Vapor V in a 38.5 and I could not be happier.

Great beginner climbing shoe,
Great beginner climbing shoe. I purchased three pairs of La Sportiva Tarantulace for myself and my daughters. We climb 2-3 days per week and the shoes have held up nicely. They do stretch, which is to be expected. I prefer a Velcro climbing shoe because I like to take them off and let my feet rest while I belay, so having lace ups has taken a little adjustment. Otherwise, I am very pleased with these.
