Topic - Rock shoes - Braking in a pair

ethan109 on 28 Jan 2013
I have just got a pair of Evolv Pontas 2. I have big size 14 feet but got these in an 11.5. These are the first pair of proper uncomfy shoes I've had. My old pair were Scarpa thunders size 12, which slip of smaller holds. This probably sounds like a stupid question but it is really hard to know how tight too tight is. When I climbed in them for the first time at the wall today. I was in agony and actually struggled to stand on small holds in them, mainly because the knuckles of my toes are jammed right up against the top of the shoe fabric, leaving my skin around that area red with slight dents in them once I've taken the shoes off. What I want to know is will they brake in and get a bit more comfy. Is this a common problem when wearing a new pair of rock shoes geared more towards performance then comfort and does it get any easier?

Any advice appreciated.
