/ La Sportiva Testarossa sizing
I'm looking to ship some Testarossas in from Germany but obviously won't get a chance to try before I buy. I know what size I am in Miura VS, Katana and Futura - can anybody with experience of these shoes and the Testarossa offer any guidance?
I seem to recall Bananafingers have a size comparison chart for different shoes. Try there.
I took the same size as my Miura VS.
Being laced shoes, you'll be able to customise the fit slightly if you get the size slightly wrong.
They stretch a lot. I would advise going down half a size on your other LAs shoes but then again lots of things come into play-foot shape, your demands etc.
I got mine the same size as Katana velcro's but I could see if you have very narrow feet maybe going down another half size would be better possibly? They function excellently though there is a little baggyness in the heel but that might be my foot shape.
I have mine the same size as my Miura Laces, three full Euro sizes down fom street shoe size, and find the fit pretty similar. I generally reserve them for at my limit redpoint attempts, so haven't really worn them enough to experience much stretch yet.
I wear Eu36 in Katana Lace and my friend has a pair of Testarossa in Eu35.5 and they fit like a glove.
My friend's Testarossa had been broken in.
Got to try a pair of New pair of Eu35.5 in France and had to bag them on and could only keep them on my feet of a few minutes, no chance I was going to climb in them.
Hope this helps,
