He's wearing them too loose. Because he isn't accustomed to climbing shoes he's expecting them to feel like trainers.

most probably! he does have very wide feet though and struggled to get into size 11s. Also he's well into his 70s and just looking for a cheap pair to try a few easy routes outdoors.. so im happy to buy a size 12 if anyone has any old pairs lying around?
