The size guide below can be used to help you choose the right size of shoe for your foot. The Avax has an aggressive downturn and therefore may not feel as comfortable depending on your level of experience in climbing. These size recommendations are for climbing shoes worn without socks. 

Desired fit 

Recommended size



Best suited for


+0.5-1 size

Street size 8 - wear size 8.5/9

Toes reach the end but not curled up. Snug but comfortable 



-0 size

Toes begin to curl, slight discomfort


Very tight 

-0.5-1 size 

Street size 8 - wear size 7/7.5

Toes curled and toe box filled. Moderately uncomfortable 


Fitting tip: Before trying on your shoes, leave them in a warm room for about an hour. This will help the rubber to warm up and become softer and more supple, allowing a more realistic fit. Cold shoes are more stiff and harder to put on.

Fitting tip: Fold the heel of the shoe down as you put it on. Once your foot is as far in as possible, pull on the heel tabs to slide your heel into the shoe. Pull up on the tongue tab to adjust your foot further into the shoe. Your toes should be touching the end and slightly curled (depending on the fit).
