Topic - Boreal Jokers - Do they stretch much?

Bisonkills - on 07 Aug 2013
Hey there,

New climber here, have been bouldering for a few weeks and decided to take the plunge and buy my first pair of climbing shoes. I went for some Boreal Jokers, in a 6, which is the same size as my street shoes.

Now, I know they are meant to be a tight fit, but I'm getting some serious discomfort on my big toes. My toes are slightly curled with these shoes. Now, I've been told they will stretch to fit a lot nicer after a few sessions. I've been wearing them round the house with thick socks to try speed the process.

Any advice? Should I perhaps get them a 1/2 size bigger, or just bite down and break them in?
