/ Torture by rock shoe
Either a: they've shrunk
b: my feet have grown
c: they NEVER did truly fit and I deformed my feet do much when I started climbing that I never noticed the pain!
I'm inclined toward answer c
Anyone else got similar experience?
Might be (b). Feet do splay, over time.
In my experience, shoes that haven't been worn for a long time often feel tight. I think that they stiffen up a bit with not being worn. They usually come good again with use.
Will give them a try but I think I'll hunt round for a new pair anyway. Something I can use comfortably on multi pitch routes.
