Is the Mad Rock Climbing Shoe the right fit for you?
Ok now these babies are a very well known Rock Climbing Shoe and have stood the test of time, but let's jump straight into the sizing of these shoes as it seems to be a common talking point.
What size do I go for?
This seems to be the never ending question with all Climbing Shoes but for some reason it comes up a lot with these ones in particular.
As a general rule with these shoes we recommend at least one size above your street shoe size, even 2 sizes is not uncommon.
With Rock Climbing Shoes in general we go by the loose rule of thumb that "If your toes are comfortable, they are too big, if your toes/foot are in pain, they are too small, if there is mild discomfort overall, then you have the right size".
Now that you have your size sorted, how is the actual shoe?
Glad you asked.
These shoes are a great Beginner- Intermediate shoe, they are well priced and great for getting used to the overall feeling of a Climbing Shoe (at first tight and uncomfortable).
In saying that they will only take you so far and as you progress you'll soon realise that you'll need something with better edging and hooks.
If you're an experienced climber these will do the job but I think we all know you'll need to step it up a little.
The Mad Rock Men's Drifter Climbing Shoe has a very respectable 4 stars on Amazon, is a great all rounder and will do well both indoors and outdoors and the price is well worth the quality you'll receive.
With FREE shipping thrown in you'll be all set in no time!
