TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

SHOE SHAPE

Straight climbing shoe with flat profile; conforms to the foot's natural shape for added comfort

SIZING RECOMMENDATIONS

We recommend you choose the same size as your normal size (or 1 size above if you want even more comfort). They should feel tight without hurting.
If you are a beginner or starting to improve your skills, it's important they not be too tight (that they don't hurt) so that your food can develop mobility, strength, and proprioception

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Our first tip is to never machine wash your shoes. Thermal and mechanical pressure could damage them. We recommend that you wash them by hand, either with a sponge soaked in clean water or with a sponge soaked in soapy water (Marseille soap), being sure to air-dry them at a stable temperate and avoid drying them on a radiator or in full sunlight. We recommend washing them regularly to increase the life span of the shoes.

Take 1 size more than your usual one!
Audrey (United Kingdom)
These shoes are very small so I would advise everyone to order one size above their usual size. I had to return them and re-order a new pair.

Doesn't give a good grip on minute foot holds and has to compromise the comfort. But a good deal who want to start climbing.
Good to start with
STEFAN (Singapore) Used for 4 to 6 months
My kid likes climbing and we wanted to go on a regular basis so the price was tempting as rental usually cost 5-10 SGD. The shoes are good and provide a good grip, but the heel is shaped weirdly. Once we stay for more than 1h, we have to deal with blisters.
Response of the brand
Hello Stephen,

Thank you for your review on our Climbing product: "CLIMBING SHOES - ROCK".

It's good to hear that you and your kid is taking up climbing as a regular sports. And those shoes you got for both of you, yes - they could save you some dollars rather than renting them from the climbing gym.

These are actually beginner's climber shoes. They are shaped and designed in that respect because beginner climber usually may still not master the toe hook or heel hook ability. So the shape meant to assist on that toe & heel hook thingy. And as in any new shoes, including these climbing ones, they need time to break (to become seasoned) before they are comfortable. The other thing is, the shoes are to put on only when climbing and when resting, to be removed. Thus for this purpose, the velcro type than the lace one, are practical and of which you may want to consider in future.....

Take care, and stay safe, Stephen.

Stay healthy, keep fit & stay happy at home, during this circuit-breaker time!

GREAT SHOE / BE CAREFUL WITH THE SIZE
Michail (Greece) Used for 4 to 6 months
I wear these shoes 3 months now, they are very good and fit well, i have climbed with this IV , V , VI routes. The only thought is that i wear in regular shoes 43+ and i choose 42 in these. After use them 4-5 times they were a little bigger and now i wear them with shocks to fit better. So be careful with your choise. Overall perfect shoe for beggining or a comfort shoe for multipitch. Greetings from Greece

its a good product to start climbing.
very good at price point of view !! and can be used in a very rough way and would not get damaged that easily
but can not do technical moves, can not continue learning more or go a bit deep with moves with this.
good value beginner shoe
Ciara (United Kingdom) Used for 4 to 6 months
these were the first shoe i bought and they've done me well over the last few months - very durable considering the price. not the most comfortable shoes i've worn, very rigid so not much room for movement and the fact there is only one seam for the loop on the heel means that it's very uncomfortable on the achilles, so much so that for the first month i often had to take a break mid climb to give that part of my foot a break. i also find the soles very slippery at first and it's only now that that has started to get better. great for if you are new to the sport and don't want to spend heaps of money on your first pair of shoes but sometimes it's worth just spending the money
Design is not well thought-out.
MUHAMMAD DANISH ARFAN (Singapore) Used for More than 2 years
For a beginner's shoe, i have to say that this product rank low among beginner shoe of other brands. The rubber is not as sticky as other brands and it gets worn out easily. The shoelaces are also not very durable as mine snapped after about a few months and i had to change to regular shoe laces. Anatomically, i understand why the shoe has a simple, basic built. However, i feel that there are some factors that can be improved. As a climber who was once a beginner, i feel that this shoe does not give the climber the right equipment and potential to grow. I feel that there should be rubber on the top of the toes so that new climbers can train toe hooks. Also, i feel that the heel section of the shoe should be more reinforced and have a more stable and firm design so that new climbers can practice the proper heel-hooking form. The toe and the heel are very important aspects for climbers to work on so that they can be more efficient on the wall by being able to utilise more of their feet rather than their upper body, which is a foundational skill a climber has to learn. On a side note, i think i speak for a number of people when i say that the design a too basic and not very appealing to climbers. To be honest, the shoe looks more like a school shoe. The colour scheme is too dull which may cause potential buyers to view the shoe as more of a low-class, budget and cheap shoe. The cheapest and basic Madrock shoe that i've found costs around $60 and honestly, through feedback from my climbing buddies, the shoes are known to be more long-lasting and technical.

Good value beginner's shoe! Great for somone exploring indoor climbing like me and not wanting to shell out on a high-end pair of shoes. They fit true to size, narrow toe like any climbing shoe, can be worn sockless (as I do) quite comfortably as many climbers like to do. Great grip, good price.
