I wish they fit my feet 🙁
I normally wear women’s La Sportiva Miura in size 37.5. I really want a good pair of crack shoes for long multi-pitch, especially for places like Yosemite where I do most of my climbing. Everyone around me that have TC Pro swears by it, so I decided to try it in sizes 37.5 and 38. Size 38 was too long. Size 37.5 fits lengthwise but the heel is too loose. The shoes are very stiff and clunky when I first put them on, but they slowly warmed up and conform to my feet, as I left them on. Unfortunately, the heels felt looser too as I left them on. I really want to like these. 🙁
Crack climbs for sure
My foot shape doesn’t really seem to be a La Sportiva shoe foot shape and I’d be hard pressed to quantify that statement further. That said, I still like these shoes for their comfort factor. I prefer shoes that are more aggressive for face climbing and honestly, I’d prefer more aggressive shoes for crack climbs as well, but these provide features that you usually don’t get with those more aggressive style shoes (padding on the top, ankle protection, etc) so these would be better in the right situation.
Great shoes, little bit expensive.
I love these shoes so far. I had a pair of 42cm Moccasyms by 5.10 but they ended up being too loose despite that being my normal shoe size. I got these for the stiffer sole and went down half a size and they fit great! I am wondering if I should have gotten a full size down though as reviews have said these stretch half a size eventually…
Great Shoe With A Few Annoying Flaws
If you’re primarily crack climbing or you work rough trad routes, get this shoe. You will not be disappointed.
Love These Shoes: They Don’t Hurt!
After years of suffering with shoes that left my feet screaming after a half day on an alpine route, I decided to invest in some TC Pros. Even though I got them small enough for 5.11+ gym climbing, my feet were still happy after 15+ pitches in the Sierra on multiple days. They are soft and stretchy enough to fit even odd shaped feet.
Great Shoe – A Little Bulky
Great climbing shoes, just a little bulky. Over all this a great shoe if you have the money to spend.
Great once resoled
Well made shoe that as one of the other reviewers pointed out cries out for stealth rubber. The shoe is good enough to take multiple resoles. Pre-stealth it seems kind of “klunky”. Good edging support. The original rubber has a tendency to suddenly break away. This is my second pair so something must be working.
the chart helped me find a pretty good size
i normally wear a size 12 4E if i can in tennis shoe. the chart helped me find a pretty good size, but i will probably buy a size larger next time – these are snug for me
Best trad shoes out there.
I’m 12.5 US (tough size) and I purchased 46. They’re about as comfortably snug as they should be (for me, I suppose).
Perfect fit and feel for long day on the rock
Only had them out twice but so far definitely meet expectations. Have katana lace in 42.5 and I can wear them for a pitch before needing to take them off. Second time out I could wear the tc pro for the entire day and minimal discomfort at the end. Perfect fit and feel for long day on the rock. Great edge and smear.
