In trying on shoes, I've found that the fit of the Otaki Women's to be much better for me than the men's fit. The only problem is the rubber on the women's version is softer, and I'm really after some supportive shoes. Have any other men tried these shoes and found them to not be very supportive?

That's to be expected - if you didn't already know, the whole shoe is less stiff (in common with Sportiva's other ostensibly 'women's' shoes), assuming female climbers to be smaller and lighter than male ones. The standard ones in your size should be stiffer - but therefore perhaps less conforming to your feet, at least initially.
