Everyone is saying that the dragons are really good. I was interested. I did my research and ended up ordering 3 pairs at first and 2 more to make the final decision. The sizes were US 10.5,11,11.5,12.5,13. When it comes to shoe sizing, I'm a person who loves references when reading reviews. Here's a list of street shoes, climbing shoes and sizes that I wear: Vans Authentic US10, Nike Free Run III US10.5, Sperry boat shoes US10M, La Sportiva Solutions 44EURO, and Five Ten Moccasym 9.5. I have greek feet (big toe is shorter than the toe next to it).
As you can see, I went through a lot of trial and error. I heard everything from upsizing 3 sizes to downsizing 2. Here's a list of my experiences with each pair of dragons:
10.5 - I looked at them and moved on to the next size. I could barely fit my hand in the shoe.
11 - Similar to 10.5, but I managed to get the shoe on. I think I experienced foot binding. Next.
11.5 - I got these on! I thought I could manage, but these were waaaaaay too tight. I stood up and immediately sat down. My toe was perpendicular to the floor. Next.
12.5 - These felt better. Really tight and I believed that it would stretch. I was wrong and went with these....
13 - Returned these because I thought they were too big. After two weeks with the 12.5s, I wish I had the 13s.
My problem - Whatever I do (VIOLENTLY tightening the laces utilizing every lace hole), there is dead space in the heel. I'm talking about the dead space where the end of the heel would FOLD OVER when doing hard heel hooks and rockovers on the heel. Simply, the shoe doesn't fit me. The toe box was painful and I have to take them off every 3-5 minutes in the gym.
I will keep this short. Dragons are light as hell and I am able to stand on non existent foot holds. Nickel sized foot holds. It edges well, smears fairly well, and toe hooks well. If it wasn't for the dead space in the heel, dragons would be the best...ever.
For me, the LS Solutions fit like a glove. If you match all the references above, you will not be able to fit the dragons. I am sorry. Good luck.
Some climbers like to run even smaller from there street shoe size. Being that these run extra tight (as mentioned in numerous other reviews), next time i would get them in my street shoe size. Like i said, only a bit small and i take them off to rest my feet every 15-20 minutes anyways. Hope this review helps.
