Fitting Options

We offer the opportunity for you to meet us at the above locations to "trail fit" climbing equipment (this includes shoes/ harnesses etc. but does not include clothing items). 

To request this service, please contact us and we will endeavour to help you find the right fit for you, and can meet you for trial fittings. 

Example process

When purchasing a pair of shoes that you have not owned before, it is often hard to find the right size first time due to foot shape, shoe fit and volume. In these cases we request that you:

1) Contact us

2) We will work with you to recommend the right shoe for your ability, goals and foot shape and size. 

3) Once the ideal shoe is found, an order must be placed using the collection options in the checkout

4) We will meet you with the pair of shoes orders, and other sizes to make sure you get the correct fit. 

5) You will then take the pair that fits best

6) You enjoy your new products without having to make various returns whilst getting the right size.
