The La Sportiva Women's Tarantulace Shoe is a leather climbing shoe for the climber that likes to do it all. The Tarantulace is unlined, and combines a leather with synthetic leather upper to provide comfort and strength. The low asymmetry won't crush your toes, while the lacing harness latches from the outside of the shoe to wrap your foot tight for the gym or outdoors. The FriXion rubber is 5mm thick for durability and sticky so you can make your way from foothold to foothold, just like your favorite furry spider.

FEATURES of the La Sportiva Women's Tarantulace Shoe

  • Quick pull lacing harness that delivers a snug precise fit
  • Durable FriXion RS rubber compound for great grip and durability
  • Lined tongue for moisture management

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.

Please review La Sportiva's size conversion chart above to help determine your ideal size. Below you will find additional information about how to fit and break in the different styles of La Sportiva footwear, which will also help guide you to the correct size.

• 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.

• Find your US Size in the guide above, then find the Euro Size conversion and add one half size.
• The ideal size holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch.
• If you can try to boots on beforehand, make sure you wear the same size and weight socks you would typically wear with the boots, and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use.
• It is ideal to fit boots later in the day since feet are prone to swell slightly as a day progresses.
• Wear your boots indoors only until you are confident about the fit.
• Your foot should feel snug (not tight) from the arch back into the heel pocket with just a minimum lift as you walk. If your heel lifts make sure the lacing is snug and not too loose.
• Your toes should NOT touch the front of the boot, but when you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes.
• If your toes or sides of your feet feel squished, most likely the width is too narrow and the boot will not work for you.
• If your toes touch the front of the boot, most likely it is too short and you need the next half size up.
• Make sure to keep all original packaging that came with your boots until you are sure that you are happy with your purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for everyday use well, this is a beginners shoes, if you are not a beginner this is not your shoe at all! Now, if you are a beginner and not sure if you will continue climbing or if money is a problem, get this one... If you are a beginner but sure you will continue and money is not a problem, go straight to the miura (supposing of course you are a La Sportiva fan, which I am). This is a very, very good everyday gym shoe, or to go outdoors with is very comfy. Nonetheless, for more serious stuff you will wish you had a more pro shoe on your feet.. but then again, you can evolve a lot with this shoe! I recommend it for beginner! (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome For The Money The fit to performance ratio is fantastic. The build quality is very good and the snug heal is very comforting on more challenging climbs. Keep in mind, this is not an advanced shoe, this is a shoe for the every day girl, the one who goes out and has fun.,,,,My only beef is the consistency of the rubber on the bottom of each shoe, I understand that no shoe is exactly the same but the rubber thickness could be standardized better. ,,,,Love the shoes and will certainly recommend them to my girls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F@#$'n love these shoes They are so comfortable and provide awesome grip on the wall. I can easily navigate tiny footholds and have enough strength to push up on the toes. The laces make them snug and able to fit over socks. I'm just a sock person OK. Get these shoes, everyone will be jealous cuz they look awesome too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these shoes My only qualm with these shoes are that they stretched A LOT. I bought them when they were squeezing my feet tight, and now they are almost too big. Even then, I still love them. I feel like I climb really well in them and the color is a big plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price and work well With rising price of climbing shoes, these are becoming a classic, cheap pair of climbing shoes. They are quite well-made. My girlfriend has been using them and although she likes 5.10 shoes better, these generally run less expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall this is a great beginner level shoe. Offering a nice tight fit, this beginner level shoe is great for running laps at the gym or at your favorite crag. I would recommend this shoe to any woman who is interested in getting a head start on sending their current projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal for a good shoe! I'm a beginning climber and thoroughly enjoying this shoe so far. It grips well for the lower grade courses I climb and is attractive. All for a great price on moosejaw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for the price It a great show for a convenient price. Fit is good, however do buy small to allow for streching.
