The Mad Rock Con-Tact Climbing Shoes use a unique hook-and-loop-secured webbing lace system to lock your feet in place and help you take full advantage of the other unique features. While most shoes are content to put their soles on the bottom, the Con-Tact extended the Science Friction 2.2 rubber over the top to increase performance on steep, desperate toe hooking and in cracks.

  • Hook-and-loop secured webbing lace system provides a quick and solid closure
  • Rubber-covered toe for extra friction on steep routes and trad climbs
  • Aggressive toe shape for serious performance on edges and in pockets

Good Shoe for the Price

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

Gave these shoes a shot seeing that they don't cost much at all an I actually really liked them. If you like sensitive shoes, these are definitely pretty sensitive.

I am an 11 in Street shoes an I went with a 10.5 in these.

You can do anything in these shoes. Bouldering, sport, trad, slab vertical, and overhang.


Sickest moc on the market.

    I have given these things a few runs now and these are hands down my favorite slip on I have ever used. I would suggest getting a half size up, I generally wear 44.5 or 11 depending on the brand/model and I went with a 11.5 and the fit is superb. You will experience a little Achilles pain after 30 mins or so, but the performance more than makes up for it. I use them mostly for trad bouldering and they perform better than any shoe I have used to date.


    I love them!!

      I've been through quite a few shoes and these ones are my favorite! They are nice and sensitive so you can feel the holds and place your feet right. I find that with these I rarely pop off but in other shoes I often do. They are so comfy. I want to just keep buying this shoe forever. I don't like any others anymore because these ones are just so great.



        These shoes are phenomenal. I got them the same size as my street shoe, and they fit perfectly. They don't necessarily heel-hook as well as I'd like, but that's also a product of my inexperience. These shoes are incredibly versatile though. Bouldering, ropes, inside, outside, cracks, arettes, whatever. It's a great all-around shoe. I'm only a 5.10/V3 climber, but I really like these. Great value and versatility.


        First Con-Tact, "its out of this world"

        • Gender:Male
        • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

        With 17 years of rock climbing under my belt you can imagine how many pairs of rock climbing shoes I have worn, trashed, melted, destroyed, and abused. I have tried every brand and nearly every shoe ever made has been on my deformed rock shoe shaped feet. This is the best shoe on the market, by far, hands down. This is the softest and more sensitive version of the other Mad Rock Con series shoes all of which I am a huge fan of. Right out of the box these bad boys fit perfect, none of that ridicules break in period of "cripple feet syndrome". The Velcro pull tab is similar to the La Sportiva Solutions but the heel cup never slips off when using technical heel hooks. The "shank" in the fore-foot gives the shoe an amazingly down turned and aggressive feel for those steep problems that require precision foot work, while still being flexible enough for those serious toe hooking maneuvers. Simply put this shoe has it all, for any terrain, is easy to take on and off, and fits like a glove. I would recommend this shoe for anyone at any level and for the price they are a steel. Or, you could go pay twice as much for an uncomfortable over priced rubber sock, but that of course is entirely up to you.

        how is the sizing on mad rocks? similar...

        how is the sizing on mad rocks? similar to evolv?

        I normally wear a size 10.0 Evolv gym shoe for climbing indoors, and I just received a pair of these Con-Tact shoes at size 10.0, and they are a little too tight for me. Granted, they are more aggressive, but I am still going to have to go up to a 10.5. I hope this helps!

        Definitely go 1/2 size up on these from your normal street shoe.

        These looks like a rip of La Sportiva...

        These looks like a rip of La Sportiva Solution shoes. I wonder if they actually similar in quality and grip to La Sportiva

        because they're a lot cheaper, I'd doubt it, although Mad Rock is pretty well known for their value. They're also a bit less agressive in the forefoot, which would make a world of difference on the comfort side of things.

        Best Answer

        they are not like solutions. the fore foot like the toe is completely stiff where as the solution has a down cambered flexible toe. It doesn't feel right.

        Solutions are a much stiffer shoe. I think these ones are more sensitive and more comfortable.
