Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall, amazing climbing shoes. I'm also an Adult that has purchased these shoes for climbing. Background: I climb avidly, weekdays 1-2 hours daily, and weekend 3-5 hour sessions with friends. I primarily boulder (V6-7), and climb outdoors (whenever I conditions are right). Review: These shoes are some of the most comfortable climbing shoes I've ever purchased. To put things in perspective, I've purchased, cycle through, and currently own Dragos, Booster S, Skwamas, and 5-10 Moccs. The climbing shoes that I wear 90% of the time are the Maverinks (10% being Skwamas for hard edging and overhung routes). The shoes themselves thrive when it comes to friction slab work. For everything else, it's never a question of whether my shoes are limiting factors to my success. They're sensitive shoes that allow me to focus on my footwork, but allow me to execute heel-hooks and toe-hooks as needed. Edging on very small chips can be difficult, but not impossible. Overall, they're a wonderful pair of shoes I can wear for hours and a shoe ideal for training. (My opinion) Sizing: Street/Casual wear I wear Size 44-45 EU (Size 10-11 US - Sizes vary depending on brand). For climbing, I drop down to 42-43 EU (Size 8-9 US - Sizes vary depending on brand). For perspective: Booster S (Scarpa): 42.5 Loose - Decent shoe, never considered wearing them for a long session. Dragos (Scarpa): 43.5 Very Loose - Purposely purchased these shoes larger, Air Pockets are present, but still allow me to get the job done (heels, toes, slab, edging). I can wear them for 2-3 hours comfortably. Moccs (Five-ten): 42.5 Tight/Loose-heels - Unable to execute very strong heel hooks, but can wear for hours. (3+ hours) Skwamas (La Sportiva): 42 Snug/Tight - My go-to shoe when I want to Send my current projects. I love these things, but cannot wear prolong periods of time (2-3+ Hours) Maverinks (La Sportiva): 42 Tight/Perfect- Can wear for (3+ Hours). I love them. Best of luck,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be great gym shoe [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wear the women's Futura when I boulder or sport climb outside, but got these Maverinks as gym shoes. I downsized half a size from my Futuras because I heard that these will stretch a lot. I think that was a good decision but I have only worn these a handful of times so far, so I suppose the jury is still out on that one. I love that these are a relatively inexpensive no-edge option. Climbing-wise, I haven't really felt any big differences between these and the Futuras, but again, I've only worn these a handful of times so far, and only in the gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good shoes with no edge [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] i always like the no edge technology owned genius before and liked it very much was expecting this will be like genius but less aggressive it kind of matched my expectation not as good as genius on overhang but very good at face climbing one thing i don't like is the heel although it looks the same as genius heel, somehow it doesn't heel hook as well i wear street shoe 42, solution 39 and this 38

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Training Tool I am an adult who grabbed a pair for training, gym / comp climbing. The Maverink is soft, comfortable and sensitive. Perfect for improving footwork in the gym both bouldering and sport climbing. Designed for younger climbers, the fit is low volume and hugs the foot perfectly without putting too much stress on your gnarly climber toes. Down size at least 2 to 2.5 sizes for fit and performance. I am a US 9.5 (EU 42.5) and downsized to a (EU 38.5). With a less tensioned P3 rand, the Maverink is comfortable enough for an entire training session. No Edge technology helps with precise foot placement and sensitivity while improving outsole wear. I climb outside with something stiffer in the midsole and with more rubber coverage like the Skwama or Solution but view the Maverink as a perfect training tool. It will always have a place in my quiver! If you want a well designed, minimal, cheap training shoe or are a younger climber wanting to take your climbing to the next level, you can't go wrong. Plus, you can customize them...sick!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Climbing Slipper [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Loved climbing in La Sportivas' no edge climbing shoes, specifically the Genius and Theory. Wanted to buy a gym beater shoe that had the same tech and stumbled on the Maverinks. Great slipper, if sized properly. Sized at a 37 Euro a full size down from my Genius and half size down my theory, with my greek footshape and narrow heel. The Maverinks fit just tight enough for me to have no break-in period and is great for indoors. I have no susceptible heel pop when heel hooking but you can definitely tell that heel hooks are not the most secure, expected for a slip on climbing shoe. Overall a great shoe and the markers are a nice touch, allowing me to add my own personal flair to the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gym Shoe Got these for gym climbing at my local bouldering gym. I prefer to climb in slippers, indoors and outdoors, but I have lace ups for harder outdoor climbing as well. These are perfect for the gym. They're comfortable and I'm able to toe in on pretty small stuff, despite the fact they're not on a super aggressive last. For a slipper the heel stays on pretty well; the ability to slip out of a heel hook is the down side of wearing slippers. The no-edge technology took some getting used to (I switched over from 5.10 Moccasyms due to Adidas's recent quality failures) and the change over from being precise to stand on an edge to being more precise about my toe took about two weeks to fully get used to. I climb V6 to V7 and the no edge works well for getting on tiny foot chips. I find, oddly, it makes the biggest difference when I cut feet or throw a foot out to something far; I just have a lot better idea of where my foot is and I am more able to hit the hold and stick. Similarly, the rubber seems sticky; although, I think they slip slightly more than the 5.10's it's not significantly different. And they look sweet. Personally, I think they run a bit long/large. I can climb in a 39.5 or 39 (I used both in the Moccasym slippers), but I got these in a 38.5 and they feel just right. One con, the inside of these shoes got VERY smelly within a month. I've not had this happen in any other shoe; they'll get smelly for the day, but generally the odor goes away. I'm guessing the synthetics in this shoe are particularly odor-trapping. They got smelly and stayed smelly. So, I got a good odor spray. Anticipate you'll need to make this extra expenditure for shoe upkeep. Pros: -Comfortable -Precise for footwork -Good heel fit (for a slipper) -Sticky rubber -Cool color Cons: -Run large, be aware -Materials get smellier than the average

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shoe! Great and versatile shoe! I am not a kid, but a lightweight intermediate boulderer/sport climber (55 kg, >6B) who has very sensitive feet, hence I don't do well wearing tight performance shoes and I generally don't really need them. I needed something more technical than beginners shoes though, and this pair definitely hits the spot. I can wear these for hours in the gym and still be comfortable. Due to not needing super high performance, I got them only a half size down from my street size (39 -> 38,5) and in retrospect, I could have gone down a full size or even more and they would've still been comfortable and lasted a bit longer, as they have now stretched enough to start slipping at the heel when doing technical hooks (but it has been close to a year!). They are very sensitive shoes, and in my experience they do well on slab as well as steeper overhangs. I think these are great for adults as well and I will be getting them again!

La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.

La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.

La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.

Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.

Lined shoes stretch about a half size.

PERFORMANCE FIT - Offers a high performance fit and a downturned last.

TECH FIT - A more technical fit and a last with neutral profile.

COMFORT FIT - A comfortable fit and a last with more volume and a neutral profile.
