Hi Rachel, for competitions I'd recommend the Ocun Rival - this is a specific kids competition shoe and should offer her the best chance to perform well :-) I'd recommend trying the UK 2, 2.5 and 3 to see which fits best - the 2 or 2.5 will very likely be a better fit, but if she's right on the cusp between sizes then it would probably be worthwhile getting half a size up and simply wearing socks in the shoes so her feet have room to grow. Hope this helps!

Hi David, for a wide foot I'd recommend the Lowa Falco: https://www.alpinetrek.co.uk/lowa-falco-vcr-climbing-shoes/

Great pair of climbing shoes!

After wearing these red chili climbing shoes for an hour or so one of my toes only on one side started to feel very uncomfortable, perhaps I need to wear them in a bit more (right foot second from the end little toe). I don't know if any one else has had this problem?

Otherwise these are a pair of great shoes, delivery was fast and the quality is very good.

Hi Darren,

thank you for your review.
I am not sure how long you climb so please apologise if you already know the following:
Climbing shoes are generally very tight as you need to be able to put a lot of pressure through your toes. They are not meant to be worn over a long period of time but you take them of after every route / every two-three boulders. In general climbing shoes "break in" over time a bit making them softer. If made out of leather (these ones are not!) they will even stretch a bit, adjusting to your foot.

I hope I could help you.
Kind regards
Cora
